Friends of the Schwenkfeder Library & Heritage Center
The Friends of the Schwenkfelder Library & Heritage Center was organized as a not-for-profit association to provide on-going support for the projects, programs and goals in both preservation and education at the Schwenkfelder Library & Heritage Center. The Friends accomplish their mission by hosting adult educational programs twice yearly and funding Heritage Center conservation projects.

Anyone remember eating a steak at Ernie Stoudt's place or a hoagie at Balduzzi's shop, or a burger at Ruba Endy's Penn Cup, or a cone at Shelly's ice cream or...? We could go on and on naming favorite places to catch a bite to eat in the Upper Perk area over the years.
Owners may have changed or passed on, names for the eateries may have changed, and we certainly have changed with the passing years, but fond memories live on about the special foods, the friends, the good times, even the antics we shared at the eating places stretching from Sumneytown, traveling along Route 29, and ending in Hereford.
Larry Roeder will be the moderator and members of the Friends Board will comprise a panel to lead the discussion for the Back Porch Seminar. As always, audience members are encouraged to add their remembrances to these lively seminars.
Photos add immensely to a discussion, and we hope to have photos of many of the eateries and of people working at the shops. If you have any pictures to share, please contact the Heritage Center. Pictures will be carefully scanned and then returned to you.
What do you remember about Tony's Steak House? Kneule's Hotel? Charcoal Charlie? Lila Adam's Frosty Maid? Jacob's Restaurant? We want to hear about it!
Join us Sunday afternoon, March 26, 2017 at 2:30 pm in the Meeting Room at the Schwenkfelder Library & Heritage Center for some delicious reminiscing!
