Historical book preview
The Ottawa County Historical Society’s book, “History of Ottawa County—The First 175 Years” is scheduled for publication Nov. 1.

Leading up to publication, the Society is inviting residents to attend a series of book conversation events to be held at various county locations. The book’s author, Patrick O’Keeffe, will discuss the county’s history and provide a sneak peek at some of the book’s more than 300 photographs. Attendees will be encouraged to share their individual stories as well. Pre-publication book orders will be accepted.

Office upgrade to rely on donations
Thanks to donations of money and labor, the administration offices of the Woodmore School District at 349 Rice St. in Elmore will be receiving a paint job, new carpeting and file cabinets and other improvements without any tax dollars being spent.

Before Jay LeFevre, the district’s interim superintendent, moved into his office this summer, plaster was falling from the ceiling – the building was constructed in 1888, according to records in the Ottawa County Auditor’s office – and it was decided to have him work out of a different room.

Jaime Pearson, the district’s treasurer whose office is also located in the aging building, discussed the need for upgrades with Joe Liszak, school board president.
