THE LIGONIER 250TH ANNIVERSARY BOOKLET
One of the Beanery Writers Group accomplishments this year was the production of a booklet, A Commemoration of Ligonier’s 250th Anniversary (http://flickr.com/photos/beaneryonlineliterarymagazine/3162152154/ ). The ten diverse stories, illustrated by many photographs, are:
Destination Ligonier by Sally Shirey
Idlewild Memories by Patricia Orendorff Smith
At Fort Ligonier by Sally Martin
An Old Stranger in the Valley by Beth Ann Fiedler
Country Cold: One Room Living by Kathleen Clark
Scottish Games by Joseph F. Stierheim
Ghost on Laurel Mountain by Diana R. Hunt
History Reridden by Ron Shafer;\
Arthur St. Clair by guest writer Shirley Iscrupe
Laurel Mountain Borough Secedes from Ligonier Township by Carolyn C. Holland
The booklet is a great gift, especially for persons with a history in the Ligonier Valley, or as a gift for a birthday, get well, or other occasion. It’s cost $3.75 (plus shipping and handling add $1.25) is the price of a card, but the booklet is far more meaningful.
It is available through Beanery Writers Group members or at the Second Chapter Bookstore on East Main Street in Ligonier, by e-mailing beaneryblog at yahoo.com, or calling Carolyn C. Holland at 724/238-3493.
