Village Stories: Quincy

May 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Village Stories: Memories and Lore from Waynesboro’s Surrounding Communities

Spotlighting Quincy

The Institute announces the third in a series of programs, Village Stories: Memories and Lore from Waynesboro’s Surrounding Communities, on Monday, May 15 at 7 p.m. Admission is free and all are welcome.

Arranged in partnership with the Waynesboro Historical Society, the program will spotlight Quincy Village, and take place in the Quincy Township Municipal Building, 7575 Mentzer Gap Rd, Waynesboro, Pa.

“This series is an opportunity to learn about village life and times through the reminiscences and memories of residents,” said Pam Rowland, event organizer and Institute director of education.

“Any current or former residents of Quincy Village—and including the surrounding communities of Blue Rock, Fairview and Fox Hill—are invited to attend and share their memories and stories.”

Discussion will be led by The Rev. Lee E. Daywalt, a Quincy Township supervisor and local historian.

The Quincy Township Heritage Park Historical Society created a museum inside the township building, preserving and documenting the village’s long history. The town was originally built up primarily by German immigrants, and a post office has been in operation in Quincy since 1830.

For many years, QuincyUnited Brethren (Methodist) Orphanage and Home provided care to generations of children in need.

This program is underwritten in part by Marge Kiersz, Lucinda D. Potter, CPA, and SEK CPAs and Advisors.
Additional support provided by The Institute’s Today’s Horizon Fund contributors: The Nora Roberts Foundation and the Carolyn Terry Eddy Family: Carolyn, with daughters Connie Fleagle & Kim Larkin.
