The Lycoming County Historical Society will continue its 2017 Lecture Series on Thursday, September 14, at a Coffee Hour held at 10am in the Community Room of its Taber Museum. The focus of the lecture will be a history of Lewis Township (which includes Trout Run and the village of Bodines) by Bea Remick.
Bea Remick and her husband have been residents of Trout Run for the last forty-four years. “It was my husband who began collecting stories about the area,” she recalls. She and her husband have collaborated on the production of four books concerning the history of Lewis Township and are currently working on a fifth book.
The Lecture Series focuses on ‘Communities’ for the 2017 season, combining Coffee Hours (Thursday mornings at 10am, March through June, September through December) with Society Programs (Sunday afternoons at 2pm, May through October). A total of fourteen lectures are presented throughout the year. All are free and open to the public. Light refreshments are served for the Coffee Hours. The next Society Program will be held on Sunday, September 17, and will feature Mr. Gale Largey. He will be showing the documentary William B. Wilson: First U.S. Secretary of Labor: Beloved Coal Miner of Arnot-Blossburg PA. Largey wrote and directed the documentary.
