His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety book com­mem­o­rates Kutz­town’s bi­cen­ten­nial cel­e­bra­tion

The Kutztown Area Patriot - - RELIGION - By Craig Koller

The Kutz­town Area His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety is pub­lish­ing a book com­mem­o­rat­ing Kutz­town’s bi­cen­ten­nial cel­e­bra­tion in 2015. The book, sched­uled for re­lease at the so­ci­ety’s an­nual hol­i­day fes­ti­val on Nov. 11, fea­tures al­most 500 color photographs of all the bi­cen­ten­nial events.

The book is en­ti­tled “Vergess Net,” which is Penn­syl­va­nia Dutch for “Don’t For­get.” The ti­tle was sug­gested by Keith Brintzen­hoff as a nod to Kutz­town’s roots along with a plea not to for­get the com­mu­nity spirit that the bi­cen­ten­nial awak­ened.

“Pub­lish­ing a book is a great way for the so­ci­ety to share all the won­der­ful pic­tures we have of the bi­cen­ten­nial events,” says so­ci­ety pres­i­dent Sheila Ful­ton. “If you went to any of the events, chances are your pic­ture is in the book!”

Ev­ery­one is in­vited to be­come part of his­tory by spon­sor­ing “Vergess Net.” A $50 spon­sor­ship gets your name listed on the spon­sor­ship page and a copy of the book. A $100 spon­sor­ship also gets your name em­bossed on the cover of your book. “Vergess Net” will be a lim­ited edi­tion, so spon­sor­ing en­sures you’ll get a book be­fore they are sold out. All spon­sors can pick up their books at the hol­i­day fes­ti­val on Novem­ber 11 or dur­ing so­ci­ety events such as the train dis­play or pro­grams. Books can also be mailed for a $7 fee.

Spon­sor­ship forms are avail­able on the so­ci­ety’s web­site at www.kutz­town­his­tory.org or by e-mail­ing the so­ci­ety at kahs1892@ya­hoo.com.
