Overview and metadata sections

The Twin Valley Senior Citizens Club is a group of older activists based in Morgantown, Berks County, Pennsylvania. Established in 1970, the purpose of the club is to promote the welfare, concerns, and happiness of its members and friends. Membership is limited to those who are fifty-five years old or older.

The Club holds monthly meetings that usually include a program of topical interest. Meetings were formerly held at the Morgantown United Methodist Church, and as of 2016 are held at Morgantown Library. In addition to meetings, the club organizes talks, dinners, picnics, banquets, parties, performances, and bus trips for its members.

Twin Valley Senior Citizens Club records, 1970-2006, consist of scrapbooks and photograph albums, minute books, financial records, and membership records of the Twin Valley Senior Citizens Club.

There are eight scrapbooks, 1987-2006, in the collection, most of which contain photographs, but two scrapbooks contain newspaper clippings, programs, flyers, and other printed matter and ephemera relating to the group's members and events. There are some obituaries for former members. There are also two smaller-sized photograph albums depicting members and club events.

There are seven minute books, 1970-1998. The financial records consist of four financial/cash books, 1970-1992. Membership records include member lists with member names, addresses, and contact information, 1989-1991, and attendance (roll) books, 1975-1982, 1992-2001. There is one set of (published) audiocassette recordings of the Statler Brothers' 30th Anniversary Celebration.

Most of the materials were a gift of Charlotte O'Neill, 2014-2015. Additional materials were donated by Ed Millard, 2015.

Summary descriptive information on this collection was compiled in 2014-2016 as part of a project conducted by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania to make better known and more accessible the largely hidden collections of small, primarily volunteer run repositories in the Philadelphia area. The Hidden Collections Initiative for Pennsylvania Small Archival Repositories (HCI-PSAR) was funded by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

This is a preliminary finding aid. No physical processing, rehousing, reorganizing, or folder listing was accomplished during the HCI-PSAR project.

In some cases, more detailed inventories or finding aids may be available on-site at the repository where this collection is held; please contact Tri-County Heritage Society directly for more information.
