Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Tom and Karen Burns leading an army of motivated and persistent citizens, Beavertown won $10,000 in the Reader's Digest "We Hear You America" campaign for 2012. The borough council received the payment from Reader's Digest, and will be using it for some improvements to the borough building as well as giving some back to the community throughout the summer. Keep your eyes here for more information!
Shown here are 43 students from the 7th and 8th grade classes of the Beavertown grade school from 1937, and their teacher, Mr. “Pach” Walker. Most of the students shown are now deceased. Some that are among the living are Curtis Umholtz, Goldie Ritter, Betty Saylor, Bill Saylor, and Paul Goss. It is interesting to note that most of the young boys shown here were destined to fight for our country in World War II.
Shown here are two signs that appear to be from the 1940s. They feature “pin-up” style girls and their names. We believe that they had something to do with Yetter’s Chevrolet. If you have any information on what they were used for, or what they signified, please contact us via email or telephone. Thank you!
