This article is about our own volunteer operated website hersheysmill.org. This website, designed for resident use, is meant to keep everyone informed about Hershey’s Mill happenings. Currently we are working hard to make improvements such as correcting out of date information, making navigation easier, adding new areas such as Quick Links to speed you to what matters and other site improvements.

By typing hersheysmill.org into your browser’s address field then pressing your keyboard’s Enter key, you will open the door to virtually everything about Hershey’s Mill. Use Quick Links or the Menu bar (below the banner picture) to direct you to your destination. The Menu bar has 8 categories including a Help category. Scroll the main page downward so the Menu bar moves near the top of the window. This will give you more room to view the items listed under each category. Hover your mouse on your desired category then click the item you wish to view.

At the top of the main page there’s a search field that works similarly to Google search. If you know the search word you are looking for, type it in the box under “Search this site” and press your keyboard’s Enter key.

If you have an idea that can improve our website sign in to your email program, create your message, then send it to: webmaster@hersheysmill.org.


I’ve heard several resident complaints of how the “Last” button on the remote now operates. Originally you could press it and view the previous channel you were watching. Now you get a screen of thumbnails showing other channels you can watch. Here’s the fix to restore the operation back to the original mode.

Press the Menu button on the remote, go to Settings & press OK. Press OK on System. Go to Television & press OK. Scroll down to Last Watch Rail & press OK. Press the down button to highlight Disable & press OK. Press Exit on the remote. That’s it.

Remember our PC Club meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7 PM upstairs in the Ardmore room of the Community Center.
