Delran Historical Society

Collecting, Preserving and Educating

Month: March 2018

April 17th Meeting

This month our presenter is Garey Hope from Will Hope and Son in Burlington.  Garey’s family has been designing and hand crafting granite, marble and bronze memorials for families that have lost a loved one and for towns or groups looking for a war memorial or other monumental art work for over 100 years.  Garey will share how memorials and the business of stone cutting changed thru the years.  Should be an interesting night.  Our meeting starts at 7pm at the Delran Municipal Building.  The public is welcome to come out for this interesting talk.  We’ll have tickets for our annual hoagie sale available.  We might even have a few Vid’s Deli Hoagies to sample.

Campbell’s: More than Just Soup

This month, Marisa Bozarth Museum Curator at Burlington County Parks will present Campbell’s:  More than Just Soup at our monthly meeting on Tuesday March 20 at 7pm.  Her presentation tells the story of the Campbell’s Soup Company’s humble beginnings to becoming a multi-million dollar company and the role Burlington County farmers played in the process.  I’m sure we all have enjoyed Campbell’s Soup and it’s likely our Delran farmers sent produce to Campbell’s.  This event is free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served after Marisa’s presentation.
