GEOPHYSICS SOCIETY GIVEN DONATION FOR SERVICE PROJECT

The Geophysics Society of Kutztown University recently performed a service project at Saint Peter's in the Great Valley to attempt to locate the burial location of three British soldiers thought to have been buried there following the Paoli Massacre in Malvern, Pa., in 1777. Preliminary results show possible indications of burial zones, with complete analysis still to come. Roger Thorne, historian for the church and KU’s contact for the project, awarded the Geophysics Society with a $500 donation in gratitude for KU’s significant work.
