Those who can’t make it can share in festivities by accessing Mount Wolf’s website, packed with history, information and trivia about this northeastern York County borough.
Here’s one interesting trivia item:

The last movie shown in the Mt Wolf Theater, in 1984, was “E.T. The Extra Terrestrial”. The young projectionist for that last showing became a politician with initials J.F.K. We knew him later as, Mayor James F. Kinder. In that very audience was another future politician. The 2010 Borough Mayor, Joshua Bowers. Jim retired from the Mayor’s office after serving for about a quarter of the Borough’s history. He is surpassed only by Edwin Greiman, who held the office for the first 40 years.
