Historical society meeting

The Polk Township Historical Society will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, April 5 at 7 p.m. at the Polk Township Municipal Building in Kresgeville. Prior to the business meeting, Elmer Heissam and Norman Burger will present recent photos of the remaining Polk Township barns. Over the years, these barns have steadily disappeared. Today, less than half of them remain. The public is invited to this presentation and to join the discussion about area barns and their history. For additional information, call Pat at (610) 681-8984.

Volunteers needed

Safe Haven Rescue is a small, all-volunteer group, based in the West End of the Poconos, that finds loving forever homes for abandoned dogs from kill shelters. Safe Haven can always use volunteers to help at Adoption Days, fundraisers, and to transport dogs to vet and grooming appointments. If you have a few hours a month, they could use your help. Foster homes are urgently needed to provide temporary homes for adoptable dogs. Safe Haven volunteers will meet at Cherry's Restaurant, Route 209, Kresgeville, on Tuesday, March 23 at 6:30 p.m. Feel free to join them.

For more information about the dogs that Safe Haven has for adoption, and to find adoption, volunteer, and foster applications, visit their Web site: or e-mail:
