Makers Day at the GR Library
March 25, 2017

The GRHPS hosted a project at the Library's Makers Day this year.  Our visitors were asked to create a model of the original Glen Rock Municipal Building (aka Borough Hall) structure using marshmallows and coffee stirrers.  Photos and blueprints from the 1930s helped the budding engineers clarify their vision.  Thanks to Glen Rock TV for filming!

The GRHPS exhibit at the 2017 WWI Bazaar featured materials on soldiers Peter Ebbert, Garret Sinkway and Ludovicus van Iersel as well as WWI era toys.  Mayor Packer stopped by to visit with GRHPS volunteers Kay Tuite, Diane Herrlett and Bill Gilligan during the event.
