Street Sign Fundraiser – UPDATE

We want to thank everyone for their interest in owning a piece of Delran. We received an overwhelming number of requests for street signs available now.  If the sign you requested is available, you will receive a confirmation email by October 3. Unfortunately, many people requested the same streets and we will be unable to fulfill all requests.  Additionally, due to the volume of requests we’ve decided not have them picked up at Delran Day. We are in the process of scheduling times at the Delran Township Municipal Building for you to pick up and pay for your signs. Further details will be included in the email confirmation. Thank you for supporting the Delran Historical Society and make sure to stop by and visit our pop-up museum at Delran Day.

Delran Street Sign Fundraiser

Looking for a unique one-of-kind gift for the holidays, consider purchasing an old street sign. The Delran Historical Society is selling Delran Township’s old streets signs for $20 on a first come first serve basis. At this time, total of 282 signs from 115 streets are available. Delran Township is in the process of replacing street signs, so if your street isn’t listed it should be available in the near future. A list of available streets are posted on our website.

If you are planning to attend Delran Day and would like to purchase a specific street sign, please send an email by September 23 indicating the street you’d like to purchase. We’ll bring the sign and you can stop by our tent to pick up and pay. If you can’t attend Delran Day, you can reserve your sign and we’ll bring your sign to our October 17 meeting at the Delran Township Municipal Building.

The goal of the Delran Historical Society is to protect and preserve Delran Township’s history and to educate the public about our special town. We hold meetings on the third Tuesday of the month. Our meetings start at 7pm and are open to the public. Check out the Delran Historical Society on Facebook and our website.  We also encourage you to considering joining DHS. A family membership is just $15.

Longwood Gardens Bus Trip

Join the Delran Historical Society for a bus trip to Longwood Gardens on November 25, 2017 for “A Longwood Christmas”.  This is a great way to start the Holiday Season  when there are organ sing-alongs, strolling carolers, and holiday horticulture fills the Gardens.  The cost is $65 per person which includes the bus and entrance ticket to Longwood Gardens.  We’ll meet the bus at the Target parking lot at 11:30am and return by 8pm.  If you’d like to purchase a ticket please email or call (609)410-1602 to reserve a spot.
