General Membership Meeting –

This year, we are initiating a fall membership meeting.  It’s good to get together more than once every year to catch up with what’s going on with the Society and just enjoy good fellowship.

It will begin at 7:00 P.M.; however, for those interested, there will be a tour of the church beginning at 6:30. 
This is the oldest church building in Bellevue with quite a bit of historical significance. 
The program for the meeting will include the history of the Union Street Flag (see article on page ) by Mel Poeppelman and a presentation on Bellevue area artifacts by Jeb Bowen, Seneca County resident and archeologist with 30-plus years of experience researching the prehistoric people of Ohio.
