It’s November’s history night! We are at the Depot with Denny Driscoll from the Kane Historic Preservation Society and he shares from the journal of Elizabeth Kane when she wrote on Thanksgiving Day 1868. (You’ll get to see how beautiful her handwriting was.)
This is Alumni Weekend – the unofficial holiday of Kane, PA. Our town has been getting ready and you can feel the anticipation when you walk outside. The welcome banner hangs with pride over Fraley Street. It’s like having your mom and dad standing with outstretched arms at the front door waiting to say “Welcome home!”
Our town will be bustling with alumni and soon to be alumni. Our friends and loved ones will be traveling from all over the country to spend a weekend reminiscing and making new memories with us here.
Our sense of pride in our community is like no other place I’ve lived. When something happens to one person it feels like it happens to us all, doesn’t it? We are connected to each other through our stories.
