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. 



For the second year, The Bellevue Historical Society and Historic Lyme Village are partnering to offer you a chance to “kick up your heels” and do some dancing. 

Come to the Schaeffer Barn at Lyme Village on Saturday, October 6 from 6 to 10 P.M. for the fun. 

Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at The Golden Acorn, Hunter’s Needs, Russell’s or at the door. 

Your ticket includes a hearty soup and sandwich meal with dessert, so come hungry! 

If you don’t know how to square dance, caller Jerry Wittman from Oak Harbor will provide instruction and some other dance choices as well. 

There will also be raffle prizes and a bonfire. 

What a great way to celebrate fall! 

The Bellevue Historical Society’s signature fundraising event, The Tremont House Block Party, will be held on August 4, 2018 from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
