Discover facts about Northeast Ohio's ancient history
Do you ever feel like you are swimming upstream in traffic on Interstate 71?
Lee Hall, fossil preparatory and Vertebrate Paleontology Lab manager at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, is the featured speaker for the Thursday, May 16, Bay Village Historical Society potluck dinner program at the Bay Village Community House.
Hall will travel through time down Interstate 71 to a period when Northeast Ohio was flooded by a shallow tropical sea. While I-71 was under construction, giant armored fish skulls and mummified sharks buried for 360 million years were uncovered. Learn the history behind the discovery of this hidden treasure.
The Bay Village Historical Society will provide the entrée for the dinner. Attendees with a last name beginning with A through L are asked to bring an appetizer or dessert for 10 to share. Attendees with a last name beginning with M through Z are asked to bring a side dish for 10 to share. Everyone is asked to bring their own place setting.
Admission is free for Bay Village Historical Society members. A donation of $5 is requested from non-members. Membership in the society is encouraged and the annual fee is $10 for students, $25 for individuals and $35 for families.
The evening begins with a social hour at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m. and program at 7 p.m. Attendees are asked to RSVP to Beth Conroy at 440-821-4427 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by May 13.
