Forks Recognizes its History
Forks Township Supervisor Bob Egolf calls for a plaque to recognize historic photo display in community center.
In the Forks Township Community Center, the township's history is on display.
Captured in pictures are the works of the Forks Township Historical Society, which recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary.
Well, Forks Township Supervisor Bob Egolf has wanted to give the society another reason to celebrate.
He got the Board of Supervisors to approve a motion to purchase a plaque that could be posted by the pictures and would pay tribute to the hard work the historical society did in putting together the photo display.
"That's a nice idea Bob," said Erik Chuss, supervisors chairman.
"I was looking at the photo display in the community center and I couldn't find a plaque near the photos," Egolf said. "I thought it should say something simple that would be sufficient to give recognition."
Egolf and his colleagues agreed on the following statement:
"These historic photos were collected, arranged and displayed by the Forks Township Historical Society."
The plaque also notes when the township was founded.
