Pen Mar Historical Recovery Association Meeting
7:00 PM at the National Apple Museum in Biglerville.

PROGRAM: We are pleased to have Jocelyn Elizabeth from York Springs, PA, as our speaker for the evening. Jocelyn has had the opportunity to use many different detectors, and has come up with some really nice finds. She is one of the few detectorists to test out the new Garrett AT Max before the final design changes were made to the unit. Many detectorists will recognize her from her blog in each issue of American Digger under "Dirt Diaries."

This meeting will include judging of displays of the best member finds since the December 2016 meeting.
