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. For more information or a membership application, contact Bill Hoffman at

Yearly Dues for membership in the Pen Mar Historical Recovery Association are $25.00 per year. This includes anyone in a family (husband, wife, and any children up to 18 years old), and single memberships. Dues may be mailed to William Hoffman, 2204 County Line Rd, York Springs, PA 17372, or paid at a club meeting. We welcome anyone to attend any club meeting, but if a person wants to be involved in the outside hunts during the year, display items found, etc, dues must be paid.

Refreshments will be available as usual. Coffee and sodas will be provided. The rest (snacks, cakes, goodies) will be up to members to provide. Please bring along some goodies for us to enjoy. Many thanks to all who have been faithful in helping out with refreshments at past meetings!
