Westlake Historical Society Meeting
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Westlake attorney and Historical Society member, Brian Thompson, will relate his life experiences growing up in war-torn Europe during World War II and the aftermath and will give some of the history of Yorkshire, England, where he was born.

Brian came alone as an immigrant at the age of 16, not knowing anyone on this side of the Atlantic, and found this to be a wonderful country and the people to be most welcoming and helpful. He was able to recognize the many opportunities that the state of Ohio and the United States provide and was able to take advantage of those opportunities. Brian will tell about these opportunities and life as an immigrant and life in Ohio and especially Northeast Ohio in the 1950s, 1960s, and right to the present. Brian will also relate some of the experiences of the early settlers in Ohio and the beginnings of the city of Cleveland.
Refreshments will be provided.
