Wednesday, 18 September 2013 Meeting  (7:00 pm)


The Deischers - A Family of Educators


Blanche Knauss, Emaus High Class of 1900, married Jonathan Deischer in 1903.  They lived in Emaus where they raised 3 boys and 3 girls.  All 6 children became teachers in Emaus (Emmaus).  The 3 boys married 3 more teachers in the district.  We look forward to this opportunity to present the history of this family of dedicated and gifted individuals.


Our Membership meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM (except January, July and August) at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 5th and Chestnut Street, Emmaus.
