The PHGS held its first annual reunion on July 24, 1999. It took place at the home of members Dan and Sally Maxson, at their 160 year old farm house located in a beautiful rural setting near Shiglehouse, Pennsylvania. Members from as far as Florida and Michigan came to meet others. The day was filled with workshops presented by our members and great food which was prepared by Dan himself! Below are some highlites from that day and I hope you enjoy them as much as we did that day.
