Our 2018 Summer Tour last year followed the wonderful idea of a Night Picnic. The event  took place at the Buckeye Lake Historical Museum. Themes followed the methods used in the Fish Fry picnics of the 50’s and 60’s. Click Here to see the Event

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.
