Thursday, March 24, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. at Mary's Catering to Go, 111 N. Buckeye Street.

Russell Herner, Founding Member of the Historical Society, will present a slide program titled, Cathedrals Built by the Masons.  Color slides will show several European Cathedral interiors and exteriors.  There will be a display of several primitive tools that would have been used to build the magnificent Cathedrals of Europe.

Mr. Herner's slides help tell the story of the brilliance of the Master Builders and Craftsmen who designed and built the beautiful Masterpieces of Architecture called Cathedrals, using only primitive tools.  Cathedral buildings are a fusion of man's greatest accomplishments in the arts, sciences and humanities over the centuries.   

Russell Herner began researching cathedrals on his first trip to Europe in 1969.  He has collected primitive craft tools (and antique cars) for more than fifty years,  He was plant engineer at Dixon Ticonderoga Co. for forty-five years.  Russell has been a Mason since 1962, and his Masonic interests led to the creation of his beautiful book showcasing the great Cathedrals of Europe.
Russell and his wife, Marcia (Reitz), have three children and live in the Bellevue area.

If you missed his ElderCollege presentations, here is a chance to see and hear an exciting program in Bellevue!

Mr. Herner's book, 'Cathedrals Built by the Masons' will be available for purchase.
Cathedrals – Built By The Masons, a 240 page, hard bound book with 259 incredible photos is available now.
Cost of each book is $45 plus tax.

One of Bellevue’s oldest, most historic buildings, was the topic of discussion in one of Bellevue’s newest businesses on Thursday evening, as members and guests of the Bellevue Historical Society gathered at the Depot Dining Hall for their Annual Meeting.

The Annual meeting was conducted with election of Board members as the primary order of business.  Board members Ralph Flynn, Peggy Missler, and John Miller were re-elected for a two-year term.  New Directors, elected for a one-year term, were Helen Milkie and Jeannie Gore.
Following the meeting, Mayor Don Berkey spoke about the City’s participation in the Historic Route 20 Association, comparing the trans-continental highway with the iconic Route 66, and the possibilities of  burnishing the reputation of this Historic road, and its importance.

Photographer Dominic Sberna shared a slide show of photos he took of the interior of the Tremont House, especially the second and third floors, which many people have never seen.
