From July 21-August 4, 1982, Irwin resident, Anna Bolko Seltis, lived in a small house atop a telephone pole by the Norwin Public Library on Third Street in downtown Irwin.

She was promoting the 50th anniversary of the community picnic at Idlewild Park.

Her shelter was six-by-eight feet and featured a fold-away bed, battery-powered lights, a desk and a typewriter.

After, the house was raffled off and proceeds benefited the Norwin Public Library and YMCA.
She spent a couple weeks doing the same thing in 1968 to again promote the community picnic.
