Local businesses and volunteers helped to make this another successful fund raiser, for the Buckeye Lake Historical Society Museum’s Cranberry Bog Project.

The Buckeye Lake Museum, in conjunction with the Buckeye Lake Library, hosted a Veterans Day Presentation focusing on WWII, Saturday, November 11th. The museum laid out a few of the WWII military uniforms it has for the public to view, some complete with all the medals and honors. The museum docent, Brenda, even dressed up in a Naval W.A.V.E.'s uniform.

A presentation was viewed about Ohio's WWII Veterans, with some stories being told by the servicemen. Afterwards, J-me Braig, Director and daughter of the founder, Donna Braig, read aloud some of the names of the BL men that went off to war during that time. Some had generations of servicemen and servicewomen. Then, J-me opened it up to everyone to tell their personal stories and many did. Stories from WWII and other conflicts like Korea, Viet Nam and the Cold War. Refreshments were served.

Cranberry Bog Cleanup 2016
It was a cool and windy April day when the cleanup crew arrived at the bog. Volunteers, called "Bog Buddies," keep the marsh healthy year around.
Chain saws cutting down trees, weedwhacking, pulling noxious weeds and tending to the Prothonotary Warbler nests, are typical chores.
"You" are invited to join in, call J-me: 740-929-1998.
Thank you Susan, Al, J-me, Mary and Brenda...
