UPPER TOWNSHIP – The Historical Preservation Society of Upper Township is jumping into the 21st Century by adopting its own QR code, which will allow people with wireless devises to easily connect to the society’s website.

QR codes are two-dimensional bar codes made up of black dots. Wireless devices can scan them and automatically be directed to a website.

The Historical Preservation Society of Upper Township has placed its new QR codes on signs by each of the township’s three historic sites. The QR code will also be included in the group’s future newsletter articles, hand outs, signs and banners.

The society’s website includes descriptions of the historic sites it maintains and a list of future events.  

The Historical Preservation Society of Upper Township will hold its first general meeting of the year at 7 p.m. on March 12 at the Tuckahoe Methodist Church. There will be a covered dish supper and a show and tell. Guests are welcome.

Each family attending is asked to bring a vegetable, bread or casserole. The society’s board of trustees will provide the meat, beverages, and deserts.

Most members also bring some historic artifact that will interest others. World War II memorabilia, a set of china that a great-grandmother brought to America when she immigrated, old photographs of the area, muskrat traps, a vase from the wreck of the 

Sindia, carpentry tools, kitchen utensils, and a variety of “mystery” items have been brought in the past. Guests are invited to bring their own interesting historic treasure to talk about.
