To the editor:
The Mifflin County Historical Society would like to say "thank you" to our many community patrons for helping us produce the 2012 Picture the Past calendar. Every year the calendar features vintage photos from the historical society archives, as well as rare, unpublished photographs shared by individuals.
The Mifflin County School District has permitted us to distribute these calendars to all fourth grade students in the school district. Calendars are also distributed to several of Mifflin County's private school fourth graders. This year's distribution will allow the historical society to share Mifflin County's unique history with more than 500 area students and their families.
We would like to thank Mr. James Estep, Mifflin County School District Superintendent, for his cooperation and support of the calendar project. Thanks, also, to the many teachers for distributing calendars to each of their students.
The generosity and support of our patrons in defraying printing costs has allowed the historical society to proceed with this project at no expense to the students or schools. Since the program began in 2001, more than 5,000 students across Mifflin County have received calendars.
The Mifflin County Historical Society thanks these individuals and businesses for supporting the 2012 Picture the Past Calendar Project:
