​        It certainly feels like summer out! While not complaining, I would like to have a bit of Spring in the Air! 

        We are all set up for the upcoming Tea – Sunday May 6 - 2:00 pm at the Benjamin Temple House.  There is still time to RSVP.   Just call (883-2455) or email (info@ethps.org) with your name and the number attending!! It is $10.00 for this event.  (Last day to RSVP is Thursday, May 3)
        We are so pleased to have been a part of the Township and the Ewing Green Team’s Arbor Day festivities. We have a new American Elm at the entrance to the House at the top of the driveway! Please note the marker the next time you are at the House! Also in our garden are several saplings that were donated by a resident (Thank You!!), and we are tending to these before putting them in the front meadow!! So here at the Society and BTH, we graciously acknowledge the future and the care we are taking to help beautify the township and our Drake Farm Park with these new trees, while still paying homage to our past! We have had several residents who are cleaning out, or downsizing and the Society is happy to accept pieces of Ewing’s past!!  
        Our next activities will be the Annual Garden Tour, as well as our Independence Celebration with the red carpet screening of Ewing’s own, David Hart, and his documentary film on John Hart,  "Portrait of a Patriot"! Please check our website for additional details!
