The B.O.A.R.D. (The Brotherhood Of Appreciating Repeal Day)
The history behind the B.O.A.R.D. ...
The B.O.A.R.D. is a loosely affiliated fraternal organization founded by a small group of friends who enjoyed good beer and good times with higher a goal to make Repeal Day an annual celebration with a noble cause.
Repeal Day marks the repeal of the 18th amendment to our constitution, representing the end of a 13 yearlong ban on the manufacture, sale, and transport of alcoholic beverages in the United States. With the help of several local distributors and microbreweries, we have put together Western PA's fourth annual Repeal Day celebration since 1933. Participants will enjoy samples of a 50 craft brews poured by experts that pride themselves on the craft. Participants are also encouraged to dress in 30s era attire as the Walnut Lodge Players and live music from Max Schang and the Gypsy Swingers promise to make it a party of true 1933 proportions. The Gypsy Swingers play the 1930's style music of French Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt, an infectious foot-tappin' swing, played on acoustic and electric instruments. The group blends the jubilant swing of early New Orleans Jazz with the deep passion of gypsy music, accompanied by female vocals, period style drums, swingin' piano and upright bass.
A light dinner as well as a silent auction of beer paraphernalia will provide diversions for all.
The Shenango River Watchers are a non-profit watershed group founded to clean up, preserve and protect the environmental, scenic and recreational attributes of the Shenango River. For more information about the River Watchers visit their website at

Literally "Join us" as we toast one to legal beer and New Beer's Eve! The Apollo Maennerchor, Sharon, will feature "craft 3.2 beer" specials as well as a sandwich lovingly prepared by Helmut Schumacher. The public (21 & over) is welcome and those wishing to join or maintain membership with the Brotherhood of Appreciating Repeal Day may pay their $10 annual dues.
April 7th marks the anniversary of the 1933 modification of the Volstead Act, where beer was made legal again after 14 long years of National Prohibition. Well, legal up to a point: up to 3.2% alcohol by weight, to be exact. (That’s 4% by volume.) Basically FDR found a way to get 3.2 beer off the list of banned beverages and put the brewers back to work!
This was one step toward reviving a depressed economy as well as one step toward the Repeal of the eighteenth amendment that took place on December 5th, 1933.
