The society would like to thank State Representative George Hasay and the Luzerne County Historical Society for the help in obtaining two signs that were erected in the towns of Mocanaqua and Huntington Mills. The signs were recently dedicated by George Hasay. The signs tells a bit of history on each area. The signs were placed at the Conyngham Twp Building in Mocanaqua and alongside of the bridge by the Huntington Mills Post Office.
We would also like to thank Huntington Township and George Hasay for the recent clean-up of the Goss Cemetery.
