LCMP's Carlisle Visitor Center, 12882 Diagonal Road, LaGrange
Representatives from every history and genealogy group in Lorain County are invited to attend this event to share their recent activities and future plans. Attendees are asked to bring a dish to share and place setting. The host organization for the meeting, the Southern Lorain County Historical Society, will provide coffee, tea, and lemonade. Following the meal, organizations will have time to report on recent projects and programs, items for sale, and upcoming events. The program for the evening will be “Revolutionary Education: 8th Grade Students Reenacting Our Nation’s Founding” by Kyle Von Kamp. Mr. Von Kamp is an 8th Grade U.S. History teacher with the Willard, Ohio public schools. Each year his classes research the era of the American Revolution, learning about customs, clothing, weapons, and battle techniques and then produce a two-day Revolutionary War reenactment and encampment open to the public. Mr. Von Kamp is also active in the Firelands Bicentennial Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR), which represents Lorain, Erie, and Huron Counties. The Intersociety Meeting & Potluck is free to attend and no RSVP is required. For more information, contact LCHS at lchs@lchs.org or 440-322-3341.
