As an added bonus to the presentation, Malvern Historical Society Treasurer Linda Byrd will be treating guests to live 1940’s and 50’s music at the keyboard.

Remember, tickets must be purchased in advance with multiple ways to acquire them; there will be no ticket sales at the door.

Want a discounted ticket? We will offer a $5.00 discount to anyone who brings in a pre-1970 Malvern newspaper for us to add to our collection or to scan and return. Regular ticket price is $10 and includes a luncheon, live music, and a presentation. Out-of-state guests will make the day a special occurrence.

Many familiar 1940’s and 50’s Malvern faces and scenes will be projected up on the big screen at the new Malvern School Cafetorium as part of the program. The luncheon will include treats directly connected to Malvern’s past.

The countdown is on….Saturday, August 19th will be here before we know it! Grab a ticket and enjoy some time with your neighbors, have a bite to eat, and reminisce with us. You may just see one of your family members or friends up on the big screen!

Author: Jason Lombardi

A native of Malvern, Jason's love of history developed at an early age. He became self-appointed caretaker of the Hardesty Cemetery in Malvern at the age of approximately ten-years-old. While researching those interred at the burial ground, Jason made connections with numerous Malvern residents who experienced its history, building a foundational knowledge of historical events and data associated with the village. He served as historian of the Malvern United Methodist Church for a number of years which further perpetuated research of the area. While scouring the community for historical information, Jason connected with Malvern native Mrs. Frances L. (Thomas) Montella. Their joint efforts and common desire to preserve Malvern's past led to the formation of the Malvern Historical Society, Inc. in 1994.
