SHESHEQUIN TOWNSHP SEEKS TO DISPLAY ITS HERITAGE
With the completion of our new facilities, the Board of Supervisors would like to add ambient displays to the walls of our meeting room that reflect the history and heritage of the township. To that end, the board is soliciting a project that encompasses all the aspiring aspects of our township. It is our hope that they could and will include both images of olden days and present-day treasures; the abundance of wildlife in our fields and woods, scenic vistas within the township, homesteads or farmsteads that garnish our countryside. Anything that enhances our local heritage.
Photos, photo copies, or documents may be submitted by e- mailing your entries to: or mail to Sheshequin Township, 1774 N. Middle Rd., Ulster, PA 18850. Entries can also be delivered to the township building during open office hours on Monday and Thursday from 1:30 – 5:30 PM. Any questions, please contact Lori Kepner, township secretary, at 570-358-3222, and/or leave a message.
Submissions will be accepted by the Board based on quality, diversity, and point of interest. We are hoping many of you will contribute to this visual project documenting our township’s heritage. For clarity and credit, please include as much information for each entry as possible. Entries will remain the property of the submitter unless otherwise specified. All photo adaptations i.e. copying, sizing and framing will be assumed by the township.
Deadline for submission has been extended.
The Board of Supervisors of Sheshequin Township would like to extend a vote of appreciation to all participants in our endeavor to capture and preserve our encompassing heritage.
