Palmyra Area Heritage Association is a 501 C-3 Organization.

All contributions to this non-profit organization are tax deductible.

This book is by Donna Spitler.

She spent many hours putting together this book to fill in the blank between the time when Palmyra Area School did not publish a year book. Click on the picture to see her wonderful creation!

 As a result of the many events held during Palmyra's 250th Anniversary Celebration,

   there was a lot of interest generated in continuing to provide the Palmyra community with more family oriented events, so the Palmyra Area Heritage Association was formed.  The purpose of this organization was not to look back, rather to; provide an outlet for young and old to get together as a community by not only remembering our past, but creating some good times for the present and future!

 Time to Start Thinking About the

6th Annual Palmyra Christmas Parade!

It’s coming to town on Saturday, November 12, 2016, and will step off at 12:00 Noon at the intersection of Maple Street and Railroad Street.  The parade route will proceed east on Maple Street to Green Street, north on Green Street to Main Street, west on Main Street to Horstick Avenue, south on Horstick Avenue to Cherry Street, east on Cherry Street to the Middle School where the parade will disband.  The staging area for the parade will be on South Railroad Street between Main Street and Maple Street, and on West Cherry Street from Railroad Street to Mark Street.  Please note that the parade route is the same as it was last year.

We are looking for floats, bands, dance groups, businesses, organizations, clubs, churches, etc.   The past four years we have had a great time, and we look forward to having even more fun this year!  So, come on out, and join us for an afternoon filled with holiday magic!  All you need to do is click here to download form fill it out, and mail it back to: Palmyra Area Heritage Association, P.O. Box 141, Palmyra, PA  17078 by November 7, 2016.  ***PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR P.O. BOX# HAS CHANGED!!

Also, please remember that we have Santa Claus booked for the parade, therefore, we ask that no one else wears a Santa Claus outfit.  Santa hats are allowed, though, just not the whole outfit.  We don’t want to have to explain to all the children how TWO Santas ended up in the same parade!  Handing out candy is allowed, we just ask that if you are doing so, please walk to distribute it.  We have had issues in the past with children darting into the parade traffic to pick up candy, and we don’t want to have to worry about anyone accidentally getting hurt.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you!  If you have any questions, please contact me at (717)304-9069, or you can email me at

A Note to our Bingo players here in town: December's Bingo game may be the last, due to the sale of the firehall. We have been told the social hall will no longer be available after December. If you know of a place in town that could host 50-100 people for bingo let us know. Be aware, we don't make much money at the events - most places we've looked into want close to $1000 per month to rent, and that isn't an option for us. The fire co. has been very kind to us over the past year, by donating the social hall for our use. They have never charged us. We want to thank them for their kindness.
