On Friday, September 24th at the Westmoreland Club, 59 South Franklin Street, Wilkes-Barre PA, the Luzerne County Historical Society will hold its 163rd Annual Dinner. The theme of this year's dinner is "The Swetland Homestead: Restoring a Wyoming Valley Treasure". Speakers John Panzitta of Panzitta Enterprises as well as Cathy Sobeck and Justin Detwiller of Milner Architects will talk about the challenges and experiences they encountered as they completed a half a million dollar restoration of the 1803 Swetand Homestead last fall. They also will talk about other historic buildings they have helped bring back to their former glory. The dinner will also feature the auction of a special watercolor painting of the Swetland Homestead commissioned from local artist Frank Wengen. All proceeds from the sale of the painting go directly to the LCHS. Tickets to the dinner are $95 for LCHS members, $105 for nonmembers.
