Third Thursday Biography Breakfast (TTBB) will be held July 16 at Christine’s Café, 81 W. Main St., Waynesboro.
The event begins at 8:00 a.m. and is open to the public.
Reservations are required, and all attendees must purchase breakfast from the restaurant.
The roundtable discussion topic will be Frank Bernard Frantz (1884–1971), farmer and junk dealer who was born near Ringgold, Md. In early adulthood, he farmed near Roadside, but was later a junk dealer residing at East Third and Ringgold streets, Waynesboro. His property contained what was perhaps the largest horse chestnut tree in Waynesboro, and when the fruit of that tree ripened, many children converged on the Frantz place to collect them. His property was also notorious for the numerous derelicts who abided there.
To make reservations or for further information, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 717-762-2006 no later than Tuesday, July 14.
TTBB is a study group of Antietam Historical Association. It meets monthly to discuss deceased local residents who are not already history-book celebrities. AHA was founded in 2006 to process information about the region in Maryland and Pennsylvania drained by Antietam Creek. It maintains a website, www.antietamhistory.org, and a Facebook page.
