Napalm and Agent Orange

are topics of lecturer

BOALSBURG — A lecture: Napalm and Agent Orange – The Two Iconic Weapons of the Vietnam War will be presented at 6:30 p.m. Friday, July 21, at the Boalsburg Museum.

Developed during World War II, napalm was a psychologically and physically scarring weapon. Agent Orange was an herbicide used to kill off the thick jungle in South Vietnam thereby denying the enemy any cover or concealment.

Retired Armstrong Industries chemist Dr. Ron Lenox will discuss the development and deployment of this now banned technology.

‘Odd Architecture’

tour on Friday

LOCK HAVEN — Did you know that there is a house in Lock Haven with hidden trap doors?

Or that one downtown building has weird multiple styles of roofs?

Did you know that in one historic building, none of the windows match?

These and other facts will be presented on the Ross Library’s Friday tour at 7 p.m. Historian Lou Bernard will feature “Odd Architecture” in his hour-long walking tour as part of the PALA’s summer reading theme. The tour will show strange styles and forms of Lock Haven’s architecture that are not generally shown on other tours.

The library’s annual summer tours are each Friday in June and July, beginning at 7 p.m. Each tour begins at the library and features a different route or theme.

On June 23, the tour will show stories from Piper Aviation, and various themes are planned in July.

For further information, contact the library at 570-748-3321 or ross13@rosslibrary.org. The tours are held as part of PA Forward’s Civic and Social Literacy program. The Annie Halenbake Ross Library is a member of the Clinton County United Way.
