We're ba-a-ck! If you want to know what we're up to, check out our Comcast Newsmakers spot, which was filmed last week and is already posted on-line. It's available at www.comcastnewsmakers.com/a-race-through-time. And, by the way, get ready for "A RACE THROUGH TIME," a free Cumberland County event that will start on July 1. Win prizes as you discover more about the rich heritage of our region!


It's time for A Trip to Mars

If you're wondering what to get your favorite sci-fi fan for the holidays, here's a present they'll never forget! Give that person a copy of A Trip to Mars, a space adventure written by Charles K. Landis in 1876 but never before published--until now. Written during the same period as the outer space tales by authors such as Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, and H. Rider Haggard, the story follows two men who travel to Mars to discover a society much like our own. Part adventure and part social commentary, the book offers new insight into the complex personality of Vineland's founder. It is available for $9.95 at the Society's museum. Call 856-691-1111 or e-mail vinelandhistory@gmail.com to reserve a copy!


PLEASE HELP!

The Society needs your assistance to make repairs to the tin ceiling on the second floor of the museum. So far, we have raised some funds from a number of area residents but we still need additional help to pay for restoration/repairs.
