Buckeye Lake Historical Society, Annual Dinner 2019
I actually rode that bus, from Newark, Ohio to Buckeye Lake, to see Spike Jones
at the Pier Ballroom, in the 1940's.
Singing was on the agenda for the evening as Director J-me Braig and Board Member Dave Lawrence led the members in a song by Jimmy Buffet called “Barometer Soup”.
It was all about heading forward thru the water and having a good time.
Weldon's Ice Cream in Millersport, Ohio.
Weldon’s Ice Cream Factory surprised the members with a generous check for $550. Presented by owner David Pierce he told the crowd how much the history of the area means to him and his family. He is happy to assist the Museum in keeping it alive. Weldon's is a favorite ice cream stop on the lake and has been since the 1900's.

Annual Dinner 2019
The Buckeye Lake Historical Society Museum, would like to thank the Buckeye Lake Eagles, for a wonderful evening and a delicious dinner.
The Annual Fall Dinner for the Buckeye Lake Museum was a big event. There were eighty five attendees at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Lodge. Everyone was happy to be updated on the Queen of the Lake III. She is set to have her first paid tour in April 2020. The entire project started in 2016 and it is almost ready.
There was a silent auction and the regular 50/50 helped to bring in more needed dollars. The Board was introduced along with many volunteers.
Special thanks to the Eagles for their wonderful meal at a great price. Our committee members did an outstanding job and many thanks to the members of the Buckeye Lake Historical Society for their continued support and enthusiasm.
