Pancake supper

Titusville Historical Society will sponsor a pancake supper today, at McDonald’s, from 4 to 7 p.m.  Tickets for the event can be purchased from members of the society, by calling 827-6383, or at the door. The proceeds from this fundraiser will be used in part to continue to provide educational programs for the public. 

Recently, the Society has had sweatshirts, T-shirts, notecards, and mugs produced using the image of the Tarbell House with the newly constructed cupola. These items are presently available for sale by calling 827-0928 or 827-9171.

However, this Friday, they will be on sale at the office of Colonial Tours, 216 W. Central Ave., from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Patrons are invited to shop during those hours for these items, which would make great Christmas gifts for family and friends. For more information about any of these events, call 827-0928.

Quote of the week

“Let us neither express, nor cherish, any harsh feeling towards any citizen who, by his vote, has differed with us. Let us at all times remember that all American citizens are brothers of a common country, and should dwell together in the bonds of fraternal feeling.”  –  Abraham Lincoln 

These are wise words to keep in mind, especially after an election…
