Thank you to Margi Murphy for restoring a beautiful oak table which she has graciously donated to HPHA. The table was originally owned by Margaret Strawbridge and was used in one of the bedrooms of the Penrose Strawbridge House. Margie has also donated 3 chairs which she had saved when the house was being cleaned out after Mrs Strawbridge passed away. These will need some restoration. (Jan 2012).
