The Delmar Historical and Arts Society General Meeting

The Delmar Historical and Arts Society will hold its annual meeting on Thursday November 8th at 7 PM, at the Avenue Building (10 N. Pennsylvania Ave) in Delmar Delaware.

At 7 PM author and historian Chuck Swift will present "The Field of Stone Project".   Whoever said "Dead men don't tell tales" must have never visited a cemetery and Chuck Swift will tell us how the tombstones of the deceased actually do tell stories.In fact, they stand as some of the richest sources for biography and local history anywhere around.Chuck has been to area cemeteries that are in corn fields, towns and church yards and he will relate the graves to the living families in the area.  He will bring some of the books he has co-authored and they will be available for sale and book signing.

Afterwards there will be a general meeting.  Both the talk and the meeting is free and open to the general public
