Happy New Year, Trailheads!

Please check the PHMC Newsletter for updates on site operations and schedules.

Just a brief note as we approach the arrival of 2010. Thanks to all of our readers (tell a friend) and to all of you who visited, volunteered at, or otherwise supported the sites on the Trails of History. 2009 was an eventful and very difficult year, one whose impact we will feel for some time to come. But life and history go on.

If your plans for New Year’s Eve include some couch potato time, tune in to PCN. Starting at 9:00 AM on December 31, they will be running a marathon of Pennsylvania State Bookstore presentations exploring a wide range of Commonwealth history and heritage. A real Trailheads holiday. For more information on the schedule or to find out about books related to the presentations, visit the bookstore online.

Those of you who will actually be leaving the house might want to check out the Twelfth Day program at Joseph Priestley House in Northumberland on Sunday afternoon, January 3rd. The program will feature Dr. Priestley reenactor Ronald Blatchley as well as costumed volunteers sharing the history of Twelfth Night, the traditional close of winter holiday activities in the colonial and federal periods. Visit the website for more details.

That’s all for this week. May 2010 find you happily exploring the Pennsylvania Trails of History.
