If you're anywhere near the Harrisburg area today, please stop by the Commonwealth Keystone Building (corner of Commonwealth Ave. and North St. in the Capitol Complex) from 10 am to 3 pm for Day 2 of the 9th Annual Holiday Marketplace. The marketplace is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Heritage Foundation and features museum store goodies from sites on the PA Trails of History as well as other state agencies.
Lancaster County Community Foundation's Extraordinary Give is today (Nov. 21). To make things easy, you can click on these Trails of History sites to go directly to their donation pages: Ephrata Cloister, Landis Valley Village and Farm Museum, Railroad Museum of PA. If you're interested in other PHMC sites, many are in the midst of their annual appeal campaigns and would welcome your support most graciously.
Not to push the holidays too fast, but if you want to see the annual "Santa's Draft Card" exhibit at the Pennsylvania Military Museum, they'll be closing for the winter at the end of November.
