Volunteer appreciation banquet
The Elmore Historical Society will hold its annual volunteer appreciation banquet March 29 at 6 p.m. at the American Legion Hall in Elmore.
The banquet will include dinner and dancing, with music provided by Elmore’s “Senior Class,” a band that plays covers of the 1950s-1990s. To make an reservation, call Jen Fording at 419-509-1918.
Admission is free to everyone who volunteered during the society’s many activities held throughout the year, including caterings, the Portage River Festival, antique car shows, Grub `n Suds, Tombstone Derby and Family Holiday Festival.
Although the historical society lost its founder, Lowell Krumnow, to cancer last year, it will continue to pursue his dream of keeping Elmore at the forefront of community activities and to keep the history of Elmore alive.
Those who have volunteered at any historical society event during the past year may call Jen Fording at 419- 509-1918 to make reservations for the banquet.
New members are always welcome. Membership is $5, which is the same as it has been since the society’s inception in 1980.
The Historical Society Barn is open for rental year-round. Reserve the hall by calling Renee at 419-574-1559 or Laurie at 419-266-7429.
