Friends of Old Annville Annual Dinner Meeting
Held on Saturday Nov. 12, 2022
Approximately 35 FOOA members gathered together for our Annual Dinner Meeting on Saturday, November 12 at the American Legion on S. Manheim St. in Annville. Following a wine and hors d'oeuvres social, we were treated to a marvelous buffet dinner prepared by Becky Briody's Chef on the Go.
Following dessert, President Michael Schroeder presented a slide show covering the many activities and events carried out by Friends of Old Annville in 2022. President Schroeder then led a business meeting that included election of a slate of officers of the Board of Directors, a treasurer's report by Matt Woolson, and a presentation of the Historic Building Award to Rotunda Restaurant and Brewry (see image) for their restoration of that historic treasure in Annville.
Our featured speaker Mike Emery, Site Administrator at Cornwall Iron Furnace, spoke on "The Hidden History of Cornwall Iron Furnace," giving us all real insight into the history of the iron furnace and the iron mines in Cornwall.
