The Social Conservatives of PA is honored to host David Barton in Williamsport .
David Barton is President and Founder of WallBuilders, a national pro-family organization that presents America’s forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on our moral, religious, and constitutional heritage. He is the author of numerous best-selling books, with the subjects being drawn largely from his massive library-museum of tens of thousands of original writings, documents, and artifacts from early America. A national news organization has described him as “America’s historian,” and Time Magazine called him “a hero to millions – including some powerful politicians.” In fact, Time Magazine named him as one of America’s 25 most inﬂuential evangelicals.
It will be held at the Door Fellowship, 470 Pine Street, beginning at 7:00 pm. A love offering will be received during the meeting for David Barton’s ministry.
This event is open to the public so please help spread the word. We covet your prayers as we move forward planning this historic evening.

Campus Theatre, Lewisburg – RIO BRAVO – DIGITAL RESTORATION! Introduced by Alf Siewers, Professor of English at Bucknell University.
If you are of a certain age you will remember this classic John Wayne film.
Rio Bravo was Howard Hawks’ 1959 answer to High Noon, the 1952 western in which Gary Cooper spends two hours of reel time trying in vain to rouse the local citizenry to help him exterminate the town skunk. “Now, that’s a rather silly thing for a man to do,” said Hawks, “especially since at the end of the picture he is able to do the job himself. So I said, we’ll do just the opposite, and take a real professional viewpoint.” As John T. Chance, sheriff of a tiny Texas border town, Wayne’s job is to keep a jailed killer in, and his cohorts – who have the town surrounded – out. But he doesn’t do it alone. During the course of events he is saved or protected by a reformed drunk (Dean Martin at his finest), a gimp-legged old geezer (Walter Brennan), a dance-hall gal with a past (Angie Dickinson), and a singin’ cowboy (Ricky Nelson).
