THE NANTICOKE HISTORICAL SOCIETY PRESENTS
“INVESTIGATING THE SHEPPTON MYTHOLOGY” AND BOOK SIGNING DATE: SATURDAY, MAY 28 TIME: 40 minute program and book signing PROGRAM STARTS AT 1 P.M.
PLACE: THE CULTURAL CENTER OF ST. FAUSTINA 38 W. CHURCH ST. NANTICOKE.
PRESENTED BY AUTHOR – MAXIM W. FUREK http://shepptonmyth.com/ The Sheppton Mythology… “In 1963, three miners were entombed more than 300 feet underground near remote Sheppton, Pennsylvania.
Although two were eventually rescued, the other simply disappeared. Something fantastic happened in that soulless place devoid of forgiveness and light. It was a black hell, a total darkness where the ability to see depth or movement was eradicated. Vision was painfully ripped away by powerful forces and yet, even without the gift of sight, the trapped men were somehow able to see. While confined, the miners saw bizarre humanoid creatures and stairwells leading to a Golden City. They claimed to have been in the presence of his Holiness Pope John XX III.
A Message from our President
We will skip the Nanticoke City Wide Yard Sale which is Saturday May 21. I am having problems getting members to help out and with my recent surgery, I need more help or we just cannot do it. The 2 items below are a copy of the news release that Judy did for the papers. The first is the meeting on May 26th and the next one is the program at St. Faustina's Cultural Centre. If you can help with this email me. We need greeters at the door and we will have a table set up with our items for sale and then we will have refreshments, which I will pick up for sale. I do have a member to help with refreshments.
