Okay, so I’m only kidding on that. I actually started the Hersheypark History Group on February 29, 2012. It’s really eleven years old, and 2020 was the third time we could acknowledge the anniversary on the actual date. The History Group is the direct forerunner to this website. If I never started that Facebook group, I would never have this website.
This image below was the first image I posted to the Hersheypark History Group when I made this group on February 29, 2012. This is an advertisement that appeared in The Patriot-News in April 1970.
