Panther Valley news
Panther Creek Valley Foundation
The annual meeting of the Panther Creek Valley Foundation in Lansford will be held at the Mine Museum on Wednesday, Dec. 2. Election of officers will be held at that time. Regular monthly business will also be held on upcoming "Miner's Heritage Festival, picnics, Boy Scout jamboree and the second annual "Haunted Mine Tour."
Also to be discussed are ways of getting the message out to families that are selling their homes, or new people moving into the Panther Valley about stuff they think not important.So much mining stuff such as mementos of the mining area, pictures of mines, or breakers or the valley itself are being discarded, when attics or cellars are cleaned out and sent to the land fills.
For more information about the organization's up coming events, or if you have any artifacts pictures etc., please contact David Kuchta, president, at (570) 645 -7074. These things should be preserved for posterity.
