You may have never heard of Florence, at least not the Florence situated in Camden County. It’s been here a long time, it was listed in 1894 by the US Geological Survey as a “village in Winslow Township, Camden County, on the Philadelphia and Reading R.R.” and is still shown on their quadrangle maps. It has slipped off the official New Jersey road map, along with many other small settlements, but Florence still exists, and its history remains. Join us as Ms. Marva Priestley, recounts memories of the days of her youth growing up in Florence, the families living there, and the First Baptist Church, which will celebrate its 92nd anniversary this year. The presentation starts at 8:00 PM following our regular business meeting. Free Admission with free light refreshments provided.
