EHA Fourth Annual Christmas Ornament Fundraiser 2012
The Elyria Historical Association (EHA) is pleased to announce that the association’s new emblem design of the Ely Park Civil War Monument with Cannon was chosen as the image for their Fourth Annual Christmas Ornament fundraiser. The limited edition, green acrylic bulb is 3 ¼ inches and is decorated with an image in white of the monument and cannon. It joins last year’s limited edition, white ornament with the image of The Hickories Museum in green, the previous year's white acrylic ornament that featured the Lorain County Courthouse (c. 1881) and the first year’s white acrylic ornament that featured the Lorain County Historical Society emblem.
Ornaments can be purchased for $7 each or three for $20 at the EHA Oct. 24, 2012, 7 p.m. meeting at The Hickories Museum. They will also be available at the Lorain County History Center or by calling (440) 322-3341 if you would like to purchase one for yourself or several, as they make great gifts. All proceeds of the sale of these ornaments benefit EHA, an affiliate group of The Lorain County Historical Society.
EHA Needs Area Year Books
EHA needs your help! The Elyria Historical Association is attempting to establish a complete collection of school year books from Elyria High, Elyria Catholic, Elyria West, Open Door Christian and First Baptist Christian. We are accepting yearbook donations (non-returnable) at The Lorain County Historical Society, 509 Washington Avenue, Elyria. The office is in the basement of The Hickories and is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.
These books will be available for reference, and may be borrowed for display during class reunions. Photo displays will be created featuring each schools' teams, clubs, bands and societies. These displays, using school colors, will be featured periodically in downtown storefront windows.
We are requesting help from high school graduating class members to assist EHA in selecting photographs for the creation of these displays. Anyone interested in helping with these displays, please call 440-322-3341.
The Elyria Historical Association is actively seeking new members. For additional information please contact the Lorain County Historical Society at 440-322-3341.
