Mission to Haiti Illustrated Talk at Heritage Center
Pennsburg, PA— The Board of Directors of the Schwenkfelder Library & Heritage Center, 105 Seminary Street, Pennsburg, PA, invites the community Wednesday, September 14 at noon to hear Mission to Haiti, an illustrated presentation by Paul Ulicny, owner of The Globe Hotel, East Greenville. The presentation will be repeated on Sunday, September 18, at 2:00 pm.
Ulicny traveled to Haiti with his son Daniel and nurse daughter Lisa December 3-10, 2010, on a mission trip with Partners In Development, a not-for-profit committed to the education and economic advancement of the developing world. Paul will present a report of their work in a free medical clinic and in-home construction in Port au Prince. Their illustrated presentation will share images of the rebuilding efforts and human needs of this earthquake devastated third world country.
Community members helped the mission effort by bringing children's vitamins to various drop off locations around the Upper Perkiomen Valley which Ulicny took with him to Haiti.
The Schwenkfelder Library & Heritage Center was founded in 1884 as an informal collection in a private home to assure the preservation of the Schwenkfelders' cultural identity. Today the Heritage Center, a not-for-profit organization, is still preserving, interpreting, and documenting the history of this German Protestant group along with their Pennsylvania German Heritage. The Schwenkfelder Library & Heritage Center is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm; Thursdays 9:00 am to 8:00 pm; Saturdays 10:00 am to 3:00 pm; and Sundays 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The Heritage Center is closed to the public on Mondays. For additional information call 215–679–3103 or visit our website www.schwenkfelder.com
