The winners of the Annual Emigsville Christmas Door Display Contest were picked last night. We will be stopping by with your prizes, a gift certificate from our sponsors.
Next year’s categories will be expanded to include front entry, light and yard displays.
The 2017 Calendar of the Manchester Township Historical Society is completed and on sale now at the township building and retailers. The full-color, 36-page booklet features more than 12 historic features in Manchester Township with brief vignettes, and four in-depth illustrated feature articles.
For the first time, the calendar also presents advertising from supporting retailers. There is even a look-ahead 2018 calendar and note page for those who like to plan in advance. The calendar sells for $10.00 retail, $6.00 wholesale for 10 copies or more.
Some members have taken advantage of the wholesale offer and have passed on the reduced price to family, friends, and neighbors. It’s the perfect stocking stuffer for those hard-to-buy-for grandparents who enjoy the pictures of Manchester Township “back then.”
Need a small, unique gift for the mail carrier, teacher, or hairdresser? Give them a calendar they can use and enjoy throughout 2017.
In addition, some members have approached area retailers to sell the calendar for the Christmas season. The low wholesale price offers retailers the opportunity to adjust their own selling price and allow their customers to save on the normal retail cost.
Contact MTHS at ManTwpHistory@gmail.com, or call us at 717.467.1732. Packets of 10 calendars can also be purchased at the township building.
Thank you for supporting the Manchester Township Historical Society where our goal is to Share our Heritage.

The Pleasureville United Methodist Church at 2606 North Sherman Street in York will be holding a FREE Community Shopping Day on Saturday, August 15, 2015 from 9:00am-2:00pm in the all-purpose room.
Members of the community are invited to shop for clothes, shoes, bags, back packs, hats, and other clothing items in a wide variety of sizes for children and families AT NO CHARGE. All items are free, and community members can take as much as they like. A snack bar will also be open offering complimentary refreshments to shoppers.
“For many families in our community, back to school shopping is a stressful time because they just don’t have the money,” says Amber DeLouis, event organizer. “We wanted to host an event where the kids can have fun picking out outfits that are new to them and look forward to starting school without the worry of where the money will come from.”
Donations for the Back To School Community Shopping Day will be accepted at the Pleasureville Office located at 2606 North Sherman Street from Monday through Friday 9am-1pm up until August 14th. Clothing of all sizes and accessories such as backpacks & shoes accepted.
