Joseph Sherman's Car ~ Made in Butler

Butler, PA Blog - Thu, 11/12/2015 - 3:23pm
Joseph Sherman established his machine shop in Butler in 1890. Two automobiles were built in the Butler factory very early in the 20th Century, one owned by the J.B. Sherman family, the other by the A.E. Russell family.
From an undated clipping of an auto-club run in the Russell car from Butler to Pittsburgh:  "These cars, both 50 horse power, have run throughout the season, with little or no repairs, and without one serious breakdown. Members of the party who made the trip say that some of the miles were covered at a mile a minute clip, and even then the big machine did not seem to be anywhere near its limit of speed."
Thanks: Jeff Schalles

So yea! Last weekend I was vending at Living Dead Weekend in Evans City! For those of you that don't know, Night of the Living Dead was filmed in Evans City, Pennsylvania (which is a part of my home town of Butler, PA.) Evans City is super proud of this, and I don't blame them! So fun! Sadly, I didn't have time to go visit the actual grave yard from the movie. Will definitely try next time we go through!

I didn't get too many pictures through the weekend, except for these two special visitors.

Our good friend Steve Soley who is a photographer came through and got our annual shot. :)Thanks Steve!

I've been crazy busy lately. This was my third weekend in a row that I had an outside show.One more to go! Whew! Subscribe to my events on facebook to keep informed of my whereabouts!
See you soon! 

BC3 PSU Articulation Signing

BC3 President's Blog - Sat, 10/10/2015 - 10:49am
There have been lots of special moments for me since becoming President of the College in 2007 — new buildings, new campuses, major gifts, new programs, etc. Articulation signings are important in our “student-centered” environment, but describing them as special on a personal-level might be stretching it a bit. That is until yesterday. On October […]
