Bay Village Historical Society deserves recognition

Bay Village is on its way to the next celebration (300 years) in 2110. Hopefully, the Bay Village Historical Society will be in place to look back on the Bicentennial celebration of 10-10-10. Recognition of the Historical Society should have been mentioned from the platform on Sunday, Oct. 10. 

Carole Roske, president of the Bay Village Historical Society, and Tom Phillips, trustee and treasurer, worked tirelessly for many months to put together this wonderful event. Funding for the celebration was accomplished by the generous contributions of many individuals, corporations, and organizations.

Special thanks to Tim Atkinson and his committee for the race event on Saturday, Oct. 9 – and to his committee for the corporate fundraising. Generous contributions came from many Bay High alumni and The Village Foundation. Almost all of the celebration was funded through the direction of the Bay Village Historical Society.

Evelyn Allen and Dave Tadych, chairman of the Bicentennial celebration, worked on the celebration for over a year. Special recognition should be given to Father Tim Gareau and Reverend Dennis Stylski for the ecumenical and candlelight service. Working behind the scenes were many individuals from the Historical Society that helped in the success of celebration. The Bay Village community came together in its finest hour to reflect on its great heritage.
