During the morning hours of March 23, 2019, Board of Director member,
talented artist, and friend, Lynne M. Gilbert, passed away in the ICU at
Tower Health, Pottstown Medical Center.
Lynne was a Life Member of the Society, serving on the Museum
and Belsnickel Committees.  She assisted with many other
Society activities.  Lynne was elected as the Secretary to the
Board of Directors for more than fifteen consecutive years.
For Decades, Lynne was a participant in the Belsnickel Craft Show.  
Her redware pottery was stunning.  Beyond her artistic abilities,
Lynne was honorable, compassionate, and generous.  She  will be missed.
The Museum Committee invites you to tour an exhibit featuring
the history of the Boyertown Senior High School,
from sports and music to scholarship and activities.
Prom dresses, band uniforms, cheer leading megaphones, graduation
programs, sports trophies, and other school memorabilia are on display.  
The exhibit opens May 11, 2019.  It is a nostalgic trip back in time.  
Exhibit hours are 11 AM to 3:00 PM  Saturdays.
