Pen Mar News

The Pen Mar Historical Recovery Association, which has been meeting bi-monthly since 1980 is a non-profit organization composed of men and women interested in the responsible use of metal detecting as a hobby. Club meetings are normally held at the National Apple Museum in Biglerville on the 2nd Tuesday of every other month. Each meeting includes displays of items recently recovered with a metal detector, refreshments, and fellowship. An annual planted club hunt is held on the 1st Saturday of October, with additional hunts during the year.
