It’s Time for the Annual Meeting, Potluck and Book Signing at Heritage Hall!
The Annual meeting of the Marion County Historical Society will be held on December 5 at 10:00 A.M in the auditorium of Heritage Hall located at 169 East Church Street, Marion, Ohio. Elections of officers, followed by year-end reports, and recognition of active volunteers will be the highlights of the meeting.
The meeting will be followed by a potluck lunch at approximately 11:30 A.M.
At 1:00 PM, the Book Signing featuring Marion County and other Ohio authors will take place in the Museum Lobby and Atrium. Attending members will receive a discount in the Gift Shop as well. The event provides an opportunity for visitors to shop for books covering a wide range of topics and, in several cases, to meet the authors and have them sign their books!
As an added bonus, admission to Heritage Hall and the Wyandot Popcorn Museum will be free for the event. Visitors can view the current exhibit “From Soldiers to Businessmen” which tells the story of the growth of Marion immediately after the Civil War, and enjoy a box of freshly popped popcorn while shopping for holiday purchases in the Museum Gift Shop.
2015 Dinner with the Presidents was a big success – plan now for next year’s two date event – October 22 and November 5! Tickets go on sale January 4, 2016
