Centre County Women in the American Red Cross - Celebrating a Centennial

Centre County Women in the American Red Cross - Celebrating a Centennial

As we celebrate the Centennial of the Centre Communities Chapter of the American Red Cross, it is fitting that we highlight the role's of Hilda Patton Thompson and her sister Alice Irvin Thompson that spanned over WWI and WWII. Hilda and Alice Thompson, granddaughters of Moses & Mary Thompson of Centre Furnace, were both fervid humanitarians. They supported the men overseas through their unstoppable efforts at the Red Cross clubs and battlefield relief work during WWI and WWII. Neither Hilda nor Alice ever gave up the ideals instilled in them through their training, and both carried on volunteering after their retirement. This display will be on view August 16, 2017 through February 2018 during regular tour hours Wednesday/Friday/Sunday 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. at the Centre Furnace Mansion.
