DURYEA: The November meeting of the Frances Dorrance Chapter of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology will be held at 7 tonight in the Duryea Municipal Building, 311 Main St. The meeting is open to the public and the presentation is free.
This month's guest will be Durland Siglin. Siglin has been involved with local pow-wows over the years and has made many contacts and friendships with members of Native American bands. Siglin, while not an official member of any tribe, does have an extensive Native bloodline. His maternal ancestors include Mohawks of the Bear Clan, Shawnees and Oneida. He was born and raised in Noxen and has lived there his entire life. The meeting will be in the form of a question-and-answer session, so everyone is encouraged to come equipped with topics to discuss.
NANTICOKE: The Nanticoke Historical Society is holding a special viewing of a recently acquired film at 7 p.m. on Thursday at the society office, 495 E. Main St., in the Samantha Mill house adjacent to the Mill Library. The film dates back to the 1930s and 1940s and includes the six county firemen's parades and the World War II departure of local men leaving for active duty. The public is welcome and refreshments will be served.
