Washington's Trail Cherry Pie Hike

GEORGE WASHINGTON-CHERRY PIE HIKES. This annual event, co-sponsored by Harmony Museum, happens Saturday Feb. 23 at Jennings Environmental Center. There are three different hikes to choose from: " One guided 7-mile long hike on the North Country Trail " Three 75-minute nature walks, led by naturalist from the Jennings Environmental Center " Six history hikes that include a reenactment of the musket shot that almost killed Washington The hikes and nature walks honor the 287th birthday of the first president, as well as his 1753 mission, when Washington traveled through western PA, including what is now Harmony. He was just 21, and a loyal British subject, when he volunteered to deliver an ultimatum that French forces withdraw from British-claimed territory west of the Alleghenies. The French, building a line of forts south from Lake Erie, declined, demanding instead that the British stay out of New France. Washington's adventure led within months to the French and Indian War (also known as the Seven Years' War). The event will include history authors, outdoor information, circa 1753 re-enactors, and a slice of cherry pie. A $3 donation will be requested at event. You MUST reserve your hike time by Feb 20. Log on to events.dcnr.pa.gov and search "Cherry Pie." This will get you to the events page for Jennings where you can reserve your hike and time. Historic Harmony will have a table selling books and Washington-related items.

Village Post Office Open at Harmony Museum Shop

The Village Post Office returns the convenience of basic postal retail services lost to residents and businesses when lease expiration closed Harmony’s Post Office at the Municipal Building in mid-2009.

Harmony’s former Post Office occupied the same Wagner House space for many decades before being moved to the Municipal Building in 1967.

As the Postal Service is informing area customers, the new Village Post Office offers "popular Postal products and services. With convenient hours and location, you can mail letters and ship your Flat-Rate Priority packages right where you shop." Customers can buy Forever stamp booklets, obtain free Priority Mail Flat Rate supplies, drop off postage-prepaid packages for Postal Service pickup, and deposit mail in a sidewalk collection box. They will also enjoy free parking adjacent to the Museum Shop.

Retail postal services are available during regular Museum Shop hours: Tuesday-Saturday noon-4 p.m. and Sundays 1 to 4 p.m.. It is closed on Mondays and holidays.
