The Bellevue Historical Society Joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement
The Bellevue Historical Society has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.   #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (November 28th this year), after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back to the charities and causes they support.

The Historical Society joined #GIVINGTUESDAY at the request of a couple of out-of-town members, who found it an effective and easy way to support the work of the Society and the Tremont House Restoration Project.   Donations may be made by credit card or PayPal through our website,  Checks may be mailed to the Society at: 
P. O. Box 304, Bellevue, OH 44811.    All donations will benefit the Tremont House Restoration fund, to finish the front façade.  All donations are tax deductible. 

Volunteers are always welcome, to help with a variety of tasks at our office and campus. To volunteer, please contact a member, or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
