The Donora Historical Society made the recent announcements.

WCCF Grant Enables Technology Upgrade

A grant from the Washington County Community Foundation has provided the funding to upgrade our computers, scanners and printers which had been in use since the museum opened in 2008.   The grant check was accepted in October from the Women of Philanthropy Fund during the Women of Philanthropy Giving Circle Annual Membership Luncheon at the Southpointe Golf Club.

Holiday Gift Ideas: Donora Dragons T-Shirts and ‘Memories of Donora’ Book

New ‘Donora Dragon’ orange T-shirts are now available for sale. If you are not familiar with the Dragon logo, you can view it on our website under the “Merchandise” tab. The older, black T-shirts will still be for sale, but with limited quantities.   For sale are short-sleeve tees ($20), long-sleeve Tees ($25) and crewneck sweatshirts ($30) at the Smog Museum on Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and at the Donora Library Monday through Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Quantities are limited so please consider having your order added to a waiting list if your size/style/color is sold out.

"Memories of Donora - Growing up Jewish in a Western Pennsylvania steel town," is a book written by Donora native Sidney Mishkin. A 1955 graduate of Donora High School and a retired lawyer from Indianapolis, Indiana. The softback 123 page book sells for $20 at the Smog Museum or can be ordered by email and shipped with additional S&H. Thanks to Mr. Mishkin’s kind generosity, all proceeds benefit the Donora Historical Society and Smog Museum.
