Society Member Offering “Challenge Match”

Our Harshbarger’s Fund-Raiser Tuesday is Apr 27, 2021 but this time, there is an added incentive for you to visit the

One of our Society members, Kathleen Cargill of Duluth, MN, has offered $400 in matching funds. She has a local
connection. Her father, born John Charles Weber, was the son of John Edmund Weber and Anne Elizabeth “Lizzie”
Morrison of Mifflintown, PA.

For every dollar spent at Harshbarger’s, she will match it dollar for dollar up to $400. How generous of her to support
the Juniata County Historical Society in this way.
Remember, you need to have a coupon to present at the time you order, or a picture of it on your phone. But it applies
at both the Mifflintown and McVeytown locations, and it also applies to gift certificates.

Thanks for your support!
