Originally, we were going to celebrate corn. When uncooperative weather stunted the crop and made that impractical, we shifted gears and now propose to celebrate YOU (and the fact the LCHS windmill has risen again) on the museum campus from 10 a.m. until noon on Saturday, Oct. 16.
We’ll be serving free coffee, hot cider and coffee cake throughout the event. There will be a brief program at 11 a.m. featuring board member Frank Mitchell, who will address the place of windmills in Lucas County’s history. Our members, volunteers, workers paid and unpaid and many generous citizens who have aided us in many ways during the year will be acknowledged.
In addition, all of the museum buildings will be open for tours during the event. This will be your last chance to view the veterans display in the commons room since that will be reintegrated into the military collection during the winter and a fresh exhibit developed. You’ll be invited to take a look inside the new blacksmith shop, where interior work just began. And we’ll even have the door of the official LCHS storeroom, reorganized and revolutionized by Judy Besco in off moments during the summer season, wide open.
The Lucas County Historical Society relies almost entirely on volunteers, hard-working board members, its generous membership and others who see fit to help us do our jobs. So join us Oct. 16 and allow us to say “thanks”!
