The Bicentennial Kick-Off Event - 6/12/08 @ Washington Square Park

On Thursday, June 12, 2008 from 11:30am to 2:30pm the PA Bible Society held an event at the Northwestern corner of Washington Square near 7th and Walnut Streets to help celebrate the kick-off of the Bicentennial!  This celebration event included tables of literature and information about the Bible Society's current ministries and history, and tables of refreshments.  The event was open to the public to build awareness of our presence in the area and to prepare for our Bicentennial on December 12. Hundreds of people stopped by our tables over the course of the 3 hours to learn about the Bible Society!
