Pennsylvania treasures to be topic at museum

The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society will hold an October Coffee Hour at 10 a.m., Oct. 8 in the museum’s community room. The theme of the Coffee Hour is “share a treasure made in Pennsylvania and tell its story.”

A news release said the treasure can be manufactured or hand-made, beautiful or ugly, old or new, but should be something made within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The best two stories, voted on by the audience, will receive a cash prize.

The “show and tell” is free and open to the public.

The lecture series, waylaid by COVID-19, was reinstituted in August and is underwritten by the Woodcock Foundation for the Appreciation of the Arts. The Lecture Series consists of lectures during the coffee hours, on the second Thursdays of each month now through December, and the society programs, which are held the third Sunday of each month May through October.

The museum, at 858 W. Fourth St., Williamsport, has ample parking in back of the museum. There is also parking on the street. An admission fee is charged to tour the rest of the museum.
