Our first speaker is none other than our own President, Mr. Earl Edwards on Monday evening, April 1 at 6:30 PM at ROBIN HILL Park Mansion.

 

Please note change of venue for this meeting, as the Municipal Building, where we currently hold our meetings, is needed to set up the voting machines.

 

Earl is always seeking more historical information about our township and through his thorough research, has uncovered a wonderful world of information for us on the old Nike Site that once existed in Moon Township!  Come add anything you know about it too!

 

Earl’s presentation will cover the Cold War, what started it and what ended it.  He will also explain what was installed at the Nike sites and how everything worked.

 

Earl has been interviewing Veterans who served in the Nike battalions that ringed Pittsburgh, including the Launch site on Ewing Mill Road in Moon Township!

 

During the Cold War, our site was securely guarded with armed patrols and attack dogs.  And, for good reason!

 

Earl promises to show by picture and video what happened behind the double fence.

 

Several local Nike veterans will participate in the presentation and will be available for questions afterwards.

 

 

This will be your chance to understand better what was going on in our own back yards, and what is left.
