Save the Date: October 7 Heritage Award Celebration
A Joint 2020 & 2021 Heritage Award Celebration
In 2020, the Schuylkill River Heritage Center recognized Tom Carnevale and Lauren Eustis for their wonderful work and talents to reinvent the Colonial Theater, the Bull Tavern and the former PA Railroad freight station that has now become Uncle B’s Barbeque restaurant. Their commitment to conserving places in the greater Phoenixville region is truly extraordinary.
This year, it is our pleasure to honor Sue Marshall as our 20221 Heritage Award recipient. Sue is so deserving of this recognition. She has been an outstanding leader and active volunteer participant in several non-profit organizations where she has done so much, for so many years, in so many ways. These organizations include the Historical Society of the Phoenixville Area (HSPA), the Schuylkill River Heritage Center (SRHC), and the Chester County Historic Preservation Network.
Sue’s leadership at the HSPA included terms as President, Chair of the Board of Directors and Chair of several committees, activities and initiatives. These include her being Chair of the Governance, Strategic Planning, and Publicity committees, as well as directing and organizing the HSPA’s participation in several Chester County Town Tours. She also chaired the HSPA’s annual Strawberry Festival and its Oral History program; achieving great successful results for both of these initiatives.
The SRHC is so grateful that Sue served as the Secretary on our Board of Directors for many years. She was also active in helping to organize the SRHC’s participation in public community activities such as First Fridays, organizing historic walking tours, and coordinating 4th grade student visits to the HSPA and SRHC. She has also helped to write successful grants for the SRHC.
This year’s joint 2020 & 2021 Heritage Award Celebration will be held on Thursday evening, October 7th.
Given Chester County’s high number of vaccinations, plans are currently being made for this to be an in-person event. Please save this date on your fall calendar! We will keep everyone informed as plans for this special event move forward.
