Looking ahead to June: Patch Towns Days weekend

I can’t believe it’s June 01 already! The last few months have flown.  With temperatures here in Maryland approaching 90 most days I am really looking forward to getting up in the cooler mountain air in Pennsylvania for a little bit this month.

I’ll be heading up for Patch Towns Days (Saturday and Sunday, June 19-20, at Eckley Miners’ Village).  Because of trying to visit family in Wilkes-Barre, and see a few things (e.g. the Huber Breaker, where some of my family worked), I’ll likely only make the festival on Sunday.

Anyone else planning on being there Sunday?  Anyone have memories of previous Patch Towns Days, or ideas of things to make sure I (and others) do that weekend?  Leave a note in the comments, below!  I have no idea what to expect – Crafts?  Music?  Demonstrations?  Reenactments?  Food!?!  Looking forward to finding out… .

Check out the Community Walk Map

Hey all,
A while back I started putting Lattimer Massacre-related sites on a Community Walk map. CW is basically a do-it-yourself Google map. Anyway, check it out and let me know if something needs to be moved, and/or if you want to add anything: Sites Related to the Lattimer Massacre on Community Walk
CommunityWalk Map – Sites Related to the Lattimer Massacre

If I can figure out a way to imbed the actual map (my HTML isn’t agreeing with me) I’ll do that. For now – when you get to the site try clicking on things. Information should pop up. Also, on the left there are categories and names of places. If you click on one of those it will bring that location up on the map. Let me know what you think!
