The First Plancher Benevolent Society, founded in 1919, is a
still-functioning "landsleit" society. We have regular meetings in
NYC and will soon host an anniversary banquet.
The Anniversary Banquet is fast approaching - Sunday, November
12, in Queens, NYC. We will begin with our annual Yizkor
Commemmoration at 11:30am, followed by the dinner.
I am the president of the society and also the webmaster of a site
devoted to the history and memory of the shtetl. Please visit at
