The annual meeting of the Delaware County Historical Society was held on November 9 at The Barn at Stratford, Delaware, Ohio, with nearly 100 members and friends in attendance.
The business portion of the agenda included reports from the leadership and the election of Board trustees.
The program featured Gale Martin, Executive Director of the Marion County Historical Society, portraying Rebecca Drake, one of the early pioneers in central Ohio.
During the business meeting, outgoing board members Sue Heston and Marian Vance were thanked for their service; current trustees Jack Hilborn, Mary Ann McGreevey and Matt Kear were each re-elected to three-year terms.
Donna Meyer, Executive Director, unveiled the donor recognition board, which is in the form of a gristmill wheel to commemorate the history of Stratford as a mill town. It will be used to display the names of donors who pledge $500 or more to the current capital campaign.
