Galena story-telling event March 5


By Lenny C. Lepola - newsguy@ee.net



Story-telling has become so popular that there’s now a weekly radio show featuring stories — The Moth Radio Hour is on WOSU-FM each Saturday afternoon.

Now, thanks to members of the Galena Historic Foundation, area residents will have their own venue to share stories. At 1 p.m. Saturday, March 5, the Galena Historic Foundation will host its third annual “Galena Days Gone By” story-telling event at the Galena Municipal Building (the old Galena United Methodist Church building).

Anyone with a Galena story is invited to attend and share their story. The event is open to members of the public who are interested in learning more about local history and the folks who settled the Galena area and developed it into a village.

This year’s guest speaker will be Myers Inn Museum curator Polly Horn.

The event includes a silent auction.

The Galena Municipal Building is at 109 Harrison St.

For more information, contact Galena Historic Foundation president John Bland at 740-965-2081, or email Bland at jwbslb@embarqmail.com.
