We're happy to introduce the latest publication authored by a Reppert family member...
this one has been compiled by dear old Dad, Byron L. Reppert. A past mayor of Mechanicsburg and local historian, over the years dad has compiled a collection of postcards pertaining to Mechanicsburg and local environs, and has published this interesting postcard book following the guidelines of Arcadia Publishing. Each postcard includes historical data and shares the development of the borough through these snapshots, confirming the town motto, Mechanicsburg - a good place to live, then and now.
This recent book signing was held at Civil War & More
in downtown Mechanicsburg earlier this month. Several other book signings have been scheduled and include Sat. Feb 5, 1 - 3 pm at the Mechanicsburg Museum
, Wed. Mar 2, 7 pm at the Mechanicsburg Library
, Sun. Mar 13, 1 - 3 at the Village Artisans
in Boiling Springs, and Sat. Mar 16, 1 - 3 at the Cumberland County Historical Society
in Carlisle. There will be an Author's Reception on Sunday, April 10, 1 - 4 pm at Sweet Remembrances
The book is available at The Rosemary House and several locations throughout town. It is also available by mail from the publisher
. All of the author's royalties from the sale of this book will be placed into the Bertha and Byron L. Reppert Scholarship Fund,
established in 2001 by their four daughters, in memory of Bertha Reppert and to honor Byron L. Reppert on the occasion of his 80th birthday. The scholarship is awarded annually to two Mechanicsburg Senior High School students who demonstrate an interest in political science, history, horticulture, or journalism.
I love postcards, and this collection is really neat! Congratulations, and what a wonderful thing for your community!
Congratulations to your dad! This looks like a very nice publication and what better thing to do than to add it to the scholarship fund.
Congrats to Byron!
Congrats to your dad, and how wonderful that proceeds will fund scholarships to high school students! Bravo, bravo!
