Dear Fellow Members and Supporters,
Our special exhibits included:
Additionally, monthly Lyceum lectures attracted record audiences as we traveled in the winter months to Bedford Heights, Walton Hills and Oakwood to consider and study their beginnings as the township grew. This not only allowed us to leave our chilly environment in the harsh weather months, but also exposed our mission to large numbers of people who were unfamiliar with our history and our Society.
We were able undertake capitol projects in the expansion of our archives room and installed treads in the rear stairwell. We have, of course, constant maintenance issues in preserving the wonderful, but very old buildings we hold. Yet their preservation is key to our mission, and adds to the splendor of Bedford's beautiful town square and gazebo.
As we look forward to an even better new year, the Society faces increased financial challenges: utilities, repairs, renovation and replacement are always a part of our agenda. This year's Strawberry Festival, Reverse Raffle, dinners, teas, and other fund raising efforts are not enough to continue our programs. We benefit from hard working volunteers and the generosity of longtime members who recognize the value we bring to North-eastern Ohio, and specifically Bedford Township. As you draw your fiscal year to a close, please consider the Bedford Historical Society Endowment Fund in your charitable contributions. We are growing again, now that the market has turned and we are confident that with your support we can ensure the continued success of the Society, and maintain our history for generations to come.
Thank you for your consideration.
The Endowment Committee: Mr. Jack Ulman, Mr. Ronald Rue,
Hon. Holsey Gates Handyside, Mr. Michael Romito, Mr. Daniel Sutherin
and Mr. James Harding.
