Student organization aids historical society The Pennsylvania Society of Land Surveyors-Penn College Student Chapter was in action at the Lycoming County Historical Society's Thomas T. Taber Museum earlier this month. Initially. the club wanted to help at the annual "Terror at the Taber" haunted museum just before Halloween, but, because of scheduling conflicts with its anniversary celebrations, the 858 W. Fourth St. museum did not hold that event this year. Instead, the student chapter was given the opportunity to paint a public foyer, which members did over three days shortly before Thanksgiving break. "It was a great opportunity for the students to work as a team and connect with the local community outside of the campus environment," said Robert P. Stenerson, a surveying technology major from State College and president of the student chapter.
