Annual Spring Clean-Up at the Half-moon Inn

April 29, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am

The Half-moon Inn, also known as the Court Inn, is a gem in our community. Born in 1733 by Joseph and Margaret Thornton, she is a very old and proud structure with a lot of history to share with our current generation and generations to come.

Keeping the Half-moon Inn in tip-top shape is critical to her preservation. Please help us do just that by volunteering your time on April 29, 2023 from 8:30-11:00 AM. Feel free to bring shovels, rakes, and gloves. Join us as we clean together and keep one of the most important historical sites in our community beautiful.

This is a great opportunity for community service hours if you are a student or know one. Everyone is welcome! Half-moon Inn, 105 Court St., Newtown, PA 18940
