Bellevue Cemetery Walk

This is an educational opportunity, not a spooky one.
Brian Foos, who knows the cemetery as well as anyone, will host a tour of the Bellevue City Cemetery on Thursday, September 20th at 6 P.M.
Brian will lead a walking tour while relating the cemetery’s history, featuring the graves of former prominent residents.
Wear comfortable shoes and meet Brian at 6:00 at the maintenance shed located on the south side of the cemetery located on Cemetery St.

There is no charge and all are welcome to join us on this walk.

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. 
The meeting will take place on Thursday, October 18 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at 285 West Main Street. 
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.  

Hope to see you there.
