Historical Society Meeting Cancelled Due to Weather

We regret we must cancel tonight’s Program Meeting and Holiday Social at the Historical Society of Frankford because of inclement weather and our concern for everyone’s safety getting to/from the meeting. We have posted the travel advisory below.
We are delighted to report that our guest speaker, Jack Wright, has graciously offered to reschedule his presentation (From Horses to Horsepower:  Philadelphia Bureau of Fire – 1871-1923) for Spring 2014 (Tuesday, April 8th, 7:30pm).   
Our very best wishes to you for the Holidays.
