The main focus of the full day workshops will be providing assistance on writing Manure Management Plans. Some information on Agricultural Erosion and Sedimentation (Ag E&S) requirements will be available.

Attendees will receive a copy of the Manure Management Manual. One-on-one assistance will be available, and attendees will leave the workshop with a completed Manure Management Plan.

Light refreshments will be provided. REGISTRATION FOR THESE EVENTS ARE FREE BUT REQUIRED ONE WEEK PRIOR TO YOUR PREFERRED WORKSHOP DATE.

Slavery in Central Pennsylvania
Feb 23 @ 12:00 pm

The Union County Historical Society will present the program “Slavery in Central Pennsylvania (and how they got away with it)” on Saturday, February 23, 2019 at 12 noon at the Public Library for Union County, 255 Reitz Boulevard, Lewisburg, PA.

According to presenter Bruce Teeple, “We can trace the history of African-Americans in Pennsylvania all the way back to William Penn’s father. How and why did African-Americans’ relationship with the European population change over the years? How did our definitions of freedom and liberty change? What other political and economic realities did African-Americans face?”

Contrary to popular belief, the “peculiar institution” did not exist solely in the South. This program examines the changing perceptions and definitions of freedom and slavery in the 18th and 19th centuries. Please join local historian Bruce Teeple as he explores the institution of enslavement as practiced in Pennsylvania.

The program is free and open to the public. Please call the library at 570-523-1172 to reserve your place.
