Aston Township Historical Society (ATHS)

welcomes Bob Bardsley to the Village Green School House (VGSH)

on Sunday, July 12, 2015, from Noon to 2 PM for a fun-filled time.

Mr. Bardsley is a local Historian and "Zouave" who will share his Civil War "experiences" and interesting insights.  There will be so much to see!  Mr. Bardsley will display a variety of colorful and interesting period military uniforms.  He will also be available for questions.
The restored one room school house allows us to step back in time and enjoy a leisurely afternoon.  Come and sit at a period desk, ring the school bell, wear the dunce cap.  Take a peek at the replica outhouse.  Pop your head through the picture board for picture taking!   AND chat with Bob Bardsley and see all the old uniforms!
This free event is open to the public.  However, donations are always appreciated.   Shirts, post cards and memberships will be offered for sale.  Your child will be able to get his or her Passport to History booklet stamped, too!
VGSH is located on Old Pennell Road in Aston, PA, just North of Five Points, across from Hennessey's and up from Wendy's.
The Society looks forward to welcoming you to their event! 
Please join them on July 12Th!
