Pirate Country

Palisades Football and Fans Recognized for Sportsmanship

Palisades Football received the Eastern PA Football Officials Association Sportsmanship Award! 

In a year where things didn't go how we wanted them to on the field, it is great to see that sportsmanship remained a focal point. The award is based on how our players and coaches treated the officials throughout the year, but also on things like facilities, our event staff, game management staff, and fans.

Durham Historical Society

Durham Mill Open House and Tour - November 18 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

As most of you know, Durham Community Day was canceled this year because of inclement weather. The Historical Society was going to be offering tours of the Mill including a special one for kids. We also wanted to introduce people to our recently established museum of collected artifacts. 

We’ve decided to have an open house at the Mill on November 18th from 11:00AM to 2:00PM. Everyone is welcome. The kids’ tour is scheduled for 12:00 noon. Adult tours will be given on the hour. Come see our historical collection and the Mill’s new, vastly improved lighting system. 

Hope to see you on the 18th!
