It was a beautiful day for the dedication! In attendance were several state representatives of the Historical Connection, as well as Wyandot Chief Friend of the Oklahoma Wyandots and Chief Role of the Michigan Wyandots. There were also several displays to enjoy. In the mill, visitors could enjoy the model of an operating mill, several displays relating the history of the bridge and the mill and a view of the wheel once operated by the waters of the Sandusky River.
Hat Day at the Museum was an interesting and fun day. Many antique hats were on display for the visitors to see and even try on. One group of visitors was a club of the Red Hat Society, many modeling their own red and purple hats.
What a beautiful day it was for this year’s Ice Cream Social. Many people came and enjoyed the food, the music, a carriage ride, and a visit with old and new friends! A big thank you goes out to the sponsors , the many bakers, the Alumni band, and all who helped make this an enjoyable and successful event!
This year’s theme was “I dig Wyandot County Archeology and Paleontology.” twenty-two children learned about archeology, the difference between archeology and paleontology, and discovered what looked like a plain rock could contain crystals! They even conducted their own archeological dig.
The Museum and Overland Inn are opening for the season on May 2nd.
If you are like most of the people past
the age of 40, you’ve had some thought about estate planning. Some benefits
from your estate planning are the following: it preserves the value of your estate, it minimizes estate taxes, and
it can truly benefit your favorite charity.
The Wyandot County Archaeological &
Historical Society (WCA&HS) is a 501-C3 tax-exempt organization, so all gifts
are tax deductible. The WCA&HS has an endowment fund from which we use the interest for the operation of the Society.
In addition, your donation can be designated for the operation and
maintenance of a specific facility
(i.e. Museum, School House, or
Overland Inn/Anderson Building).
By your giving, you can feel assured that the WCA&HS will be preserved for future generations.
We hope that the WCA&HS is one of
your favorite charities and remembered during your estate planning.
Thank You in Advance
The Members of the
Board of Directors
