Bay Village Historical Society announces new officers
The Bay Village Historical Society has elected new officers for the business year 2012-2013. These new officers assumed their duties on June 1. The society looks forward to a year of renewed enthusiasm with fresh ideas for new programs and activities. The preservation of our Bay Village history will be of primary importance.
The new officers are: president, Cynthia Eakin, dining and entertainment columnist for West Life, Avon Lake Press, North Ridgeville Press and editorial contributor in Currents newspapers; vice president, Doug Gertz, Gertz Building Company; treasurer, Abigail Sammon, housewife; corresponding secretary, Cindi Lindgren, program planner for the City of Westlake community services department.
Tom Brown becomes a new trustee and joins trustees Cathy Flament, retired teacher, North Olmsted City Schools; Arlene Karnatz, retired teacher, Bay Village School System; and Tom Roehl, retired restaurateur.
Their first big task is Cahoon In June, slated for June 16 in Cahoon Park from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This year, historical tours of Bay Village are planned. A fee of $5.00 puts you on an air-conditioned bus for a 45-minute guided tour around the city.
A tent with old-fashioned games should interest the children. Pick out your own turtle to root for and partake in the turtle races. Have your face painted. Make butter in a jar. Play corn hole. Purchase dog and cat treats. Watch a dog fashion show, play with rescue dogs. Sit on hay bales and listen to old-time music. Enjoy the taste of Ironwood hamburgers and Weber’s ice cream. Think green. Hold Mickey and Minnie Mouse’s hands. Browse along the antique and craft dealers' tables. Visit with and learn more about the WBV Observer. Tour the museums. Listen to the Community Band. Free admission. Come and enjoy a beautiful day in Cahoon Park.
