In an effort to strengthen the bond between Greater Nanticoke Area School District and the City of Nanticoke, Mr. Litch and Ms. Scibek have reached out to the Nanticoke Historical Society to set up a display case in the main hallway. Each month the case will have a different themed display involving the history of Nanticoke.

Mr. Litch and Ms. Scibek, after deciding on a theme, will reach out to Chet Zaremba of the Nanticoke Historical Society. Mr. Zaremba will then look into the Society’s archives, and if a sufficient amount of artifacts fitting the theme are present, he will send them to the school to be a part of that months display.

In September, the Nanticoke Historical Society has displayed: John F. Kennedy’s trip to Nanticoke on October 28 1960 along with the parade route, house hold items (such as glass drinking cups, plates, and milk pitchers) with President Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy painted on them, portraits of JFK, and biographies and memories the people have about JFK.
