Important Notice

Meeting Status and Cancellations

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Easttown Library & Information Center (ELIC) was closed between mid-March and early July 2020, and it was necessary for the Society to cancel the meetings that were scheduled to be held there in March, April, and May.

We expect to reschedule these meetings:

  • March: "History of Newtown Square" by Doug Humes
  • April: "Philadelphia's Civil War Generals: Winfield Scott Hancock and George Gordon Meade" by Arch Hunter
  • May: "Lost Mount Penn: Wineries, Railroads and Resorts of Reading" by Mike Madaio

The Annual Member Excursion scheduled for 14 June 2020 was cancelled. We expect to reschedule our visit to the Antique Ice Tool Museum at a future date.

Following public safety guidelines related to the coronavirus pandemic, the Easttown Library & Information Center (ELIC) and Tredyffrin Public Library (TPL) are now both open to individuals on a limited basis, but group gatherings are not permitted until further notice. Details may be found on the library websites (ELIC and TPL).

Based on this situation and related factors, the Society has not yet scheduled any regular public meetings for the Fall 2020 season. We are evaluating options for providing online program presentations and will provide subsequent notifications as soon as we have plans in place.

The Society will closely monitor the developing public health situation over the next few months, and informed by guidance from trusted authorities, will decide on when and how to proceed with our planned meetings and events. The most up-to-date information can be found on this page and elsewhere on this website.
