Beavercreek Historical Society happenings


BEAVERCREEK — The Beavercreek Historical Society held its monthly Board meeting Sept. 13 at its History Center.

A membership drive is in full force for the Beavercreek Historical Society. Anyone interested in preserving our local history can contact membership chair Sonya Veta at sonya.veta2@gmail.com or check out the Society website beavercreekhistoricalsociety.org.

Although the city owns the buildings in Wartinger Park, the society has responsibility for the interiors and the historical contents, as well as interest in the park grounds. It continuously performs or coordinates many building repairs and park improvements, including handrails, benches and some Boy Scout volunteer projects.

The popular living history program, which introduces Beavercreek’s third-grade classes to life in the 1800s, will continue with Valley school kids Sept. 27-28, St. Luke Sept. 27-28 and Main Oct. 3-4 and Oct. 9-10. Volunteers are needed. Contact Amy Rohrback at 937-477-1007 (cell or text) or e-mail to livinghistorybhs@gmail.com.

The public is invited to the quarterly meeting and presentation 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23 at Peace Lutheran Church. Karl Colon will present “History of Greene County and Beavercreek Branch Libraries.” These presentations are held quarterly, watch for details or visit the society website.
