Celebrating Montco History

fiddlersThe Goschenhoppen Fiddlers played over the weekend at Once upon a Time, a celebration of Montgomery County history at the Stanbridge Street park complex in East Norriton. Group leader and fiddle player Carl Baron says they play old-time music from the 18th and 19th centuries, including a few tunes by local composers, and he plays it because he likes it.

“It’s something that touches me.  I can’t tell you why I love this music more than I love other music.  I just love to play it, I love the people I play it with.  It’s a music that’s very social.  It’s played with a community sort of in mind.  Right now the community is kind of spread out because of the automobile.  There are more than a hundred old-time musicians in the Greater Philadelphia area.  We all party, play, jam together and it’s a very social thing.  We all feed each other, play for dances.  I’m retired and I stay busy playing music.”

Baron says the music, largely of Pennsylvania German origin, has been passed down through the generations, and they try to keep it as authentic as they can.  The sponsor was the W.S. Hancock Society, and that group’s founder and Executive Director, Karen Stocking, says they wanted to bring together different historical societies from across the county.

“We feel, and it’s been our experience, that Historical Societies take their history and hold it really close to their vests, and when they do that not only do the other citizens of the county not get the history, but the kids don’t get the history, and that is our main focus.  We really want the kids to get the history because when the history’s gone the county’s gone.”

Stocking says the schools teach very little, if anything, about Montgomery County’s very rich history, and the W-S Hancock Society is trying to get out the word.

TAP into North Penn Press release from Lansdale Police: Due to the recent tragic events here in Lansdale and surrounding communities, the Lansdale Police Department has asked Victim Services Center (VSC) to give a presentation of the services they offer on Monday evening, December 22nd at 6:00 PM at the Lansdale Parks & Recreation building located at the intersection of East Seventh Street and Lansdale Avenue in Lansdale Borough. Victim Services Center (VSC) is a non-profit organization located in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania that provides free and confidential comprehensive support services such as: Crisis Counseling Many people who are impacted by violence experience anxiety, fear, confusion and anger. A crisis occurs when people no longer feel able to cope in the ways they could previously. Through crisis counseling we provide support and information to community members who are in crisis as a result of victimization. Clients learn to reduce their anxiety and access important resources. Supportive Counseling Once the crisis has subsided, people find they have been impacted by victimization in many different ways. Some people feel very angry, some feel powerless, and some blame them-selves for the actions of others. Through supportive counseling, clients learn new skills for coping with stressors in their lives. Clients gain increased feelings of safety and self– confidence. Chief Robert McDyre – “The effects a heart-rending event such as the one we have recently experienced often manifest themselves after the event has transpired and the initial shock dissipates. It’s typical to experience rage, grief and many other emotions. VSC is at the forefront in helping those affected put the pieces back to together.”
