September 8 The Aston Township Historical Society's (ATHS) quarterly meeting will be devoted  to Saving the endangered Historic 1866 Village Green School House (VGSH) . Please note the change in venue to the Aston Township Community Center located south of 5 Points on Concord Road across from St Joseph's Church, this is a free event and open to the public. The VGSH's roots date back to the Revolutionary War and has served the community well into the 1940's. Many former students stop by the school's frequent open houses.....even one of the last teachers stopped by a few years ago!  There will be an interesting power point presentation about the school house along with a lively talk about the history of the school house by a costumed 1866 teacher. Also, some former students will share some of their stories about attending the school! The school is the featured tour site of the September 24, 2016, Life and Times History Tour sponsored by Iron Workers Bank.  Sadly, the school house is in need of a roof and other repairs. Winter is coming and the HVAC is not working. The school has been an integral part of the Aston Community over the centuries. Everyone needs to step in to help save this treasured historic site. This is an SOS to the community and all history lovers to attend this important meeting to learn about the VGSH and rally round to help protect and save the school and let one's voice be heard. As an added bonus, ATHS will also have their newly updated history museum and research center open prior to the meeting from 6:30-7 P.M. There will be additional handicap parking available. Please bring your old pictures for ATHS to scan for their archives.  Aston Township Community Center, 3270 Concord Road, Aston, PA. Date changed to October 3
