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.

"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.
