We had just heard about the Big Walnut Historical Society’s presentation on ice cream places in Delaware County (see the article elsewhere in this week’s edition) when we drove by the Sunbury Plaza and noticed the new building taking shape across from the BTS&G Fire Station is going to be a Dairy Queen. They’re hiring, too.
The Galena Historic Foundation will feature the grand opening of their Museum located in the Galena Municipal Building, Galena, Ohio on Saturday October 7, 2017 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. during their annual Heritage Days Event. The new museum has lots of early Galena historic artifacts and memorabilia on display. Light refreshments will be served.
Last week on Sept. 25, power lines were down at Routes 37-37 west of Rt. 3 and east of Cheshire Road. It was a mess for motorists trying to get around the repairs, with people going along North Galena Road to Route 521 or using I-71 to Route 62. We never did find out what exactly happened, but heard people in the neighborhood were in the dark for hours. That didn’t stop the crews working on the new apartments across the street from General Rosecrans Elementary, though.
