What's Been Happening!

2018 started off with a flashback to our roots! Foster Brown and Bette Lou Higgins opened the season with CANAL SONGS AND STORIES at the North Ridgeville Library. This newest version of the program included PowerPoint slides of the sites along the canal. The large audience group enjoyed the trip back in time and Margaret Watterson (one of our storytellers from LEGENDS OF THE LAKES) said it sparked memories of her trip with her husband on the Erie Canal and the Inter-coastal Waterway. (The storytelling version of this program will be presented at the Lorain Library on Wednesday, August 22 at noon. Check our website for details as they become available.)

March was Women's History Month and we celebrated at several locations with presentations of GRANDMA GATEWOOD: OHIO'S LEGENDARY HIKER, TRAIL MAGIC: THE GRANDMA GATEWOOD STORY and YOU CAN'T PLAY BALL IN A SKIRT! A couple of groups started off the women's theme in February and continued into April with these programs. Presenters included: Holy Spirit Ladies Guild (Avon, Ohio), Amherst (Ohio) Public Library, Morningside At Martin's Run in Lorain, Ohio, Oberlin Heritage Center (Ohio), Grafton (Ohio) Library, The Baseball Heritage Museum (Cleveland, Ohio) and the Westerville Library, The REI in Virginia Beach, Virginia and Hocking Hills Tourism Association (Ohio).

Anne McEvoy portrayed Alta Weiss at the Grafton Library and the Baseball Heritage Museum to two very involved audiences who stayed for nice talk-back sessions after each program. Doing the show at League Park was truly a special event - especially since there was actually a baseball game going on at the time!

On April 10, the members of St. Thomas More Women's Guild enjoyed finding out about CLEVELAND FACES AND PLACES.
