NANTICOKE — They’re preservationists, technophiles, detectives and, when the occasion calls for it, Dumpster-divers.
Members of the Nanticoke Historical Society have seen too much of the city’s history reduced to rubble, crumble to dust, get carted to landfills or otherwise irretrievably vanish to be squeamish. When it comes to saving records that might be crucial for charting the South Valley’s history or providing genealogical data, they’ll do what they have to.
“Believe me, it’s a rich, rich history we have in this town,” said Chester Zaremba, the society’s vice president and secretary.
I wonder what the Society's membership dues are? I'd like to get involved. Assuming I'll be on this schedule for a while, I may find myself with some time that I could devote to the activities of this group, and it may mesh with things I'm already involved in. And since I've chosen to make this place my home for the foreseeable future, this will be a good networking opportunity as well.
I don't know much about web design, but I think I've got this blogging thing down pretty well. I wonder if the Nanticoke Historical Society would benefit from having its activities publicized through a blog?
