PAINT WITH A TWIST
We were glad to have hosted, along with the Hershey Area Art Association, our first ever Paint with a Twist afternoon. Attendees indicated it was a fun, social day and are happy to share their artwork!
Did you ever play in the kiddie pool at the Juvenile Clubhouse?
If not, this year's Preservation Tour will reconstruct through story and picture, pieces from our history that no longer exist but are not forgotten. In addition to some of the more memorable structures from our past, we will also feature smaller, but still interesting and important, recollections from our former days. To find out more information about the tour, look for details in the next edition of Reflections.
