August 15th through the 18th in Lima,OH
During the last reunion in Nashville, it wasdecided to have another reunion this year, rather than wait for 2014. We’ve set the reunion date for August 15ththrough the 18th in Lima, OH. We will be staying at the Wingate Hotel in Lima. The cost of the room, if booked early, is$72.00 per night. For reservationscontact the hotel at (419) 228-7000. Ask to reserve a room under the CindyFreed Friends block
Scatteredin the Lima area are 29 known graves of the 4th OVC in 13cemeteries. But don’t worry; we willonly be going to 3 of the cemeteries where 17 are buried. We will visit the other 12 at some futuredate.
The Memorial Hall, where we will have our Meet NGreet, was built in 1908for the GAR convention in Lima and we will have anopportunity to have a tour of the building courtesy of Betsy Potts. It will be interesting to be in the samebuilding that the original 4th was in.
We will also be touring the MacDonell House, an 1890's Victorian mansion with morethan 15 rooms furnished in great detail. Features include: beautiful parquetfloors, intricately hand-carved woodwork throughout, a two-story stained glasswindow accented by a grand staircase, a rare Viennese painting on a cobweb, aWooten cabinet desk, an albino wild game and trophy room. You can view thehouse and museum here: http://www.allencountymuseum.org. Both the House and the museum are at the same location, and are only 2 blocksaway from the hotel. Also you are justminutes away from the Neil Armstrong Museum, antique stores, and otherinteresting places which we have provided time to see and do on your own.
We have a lot to cover at the meeting: electionof officers, what we intend to do with the money we collect from the dues,electronic voting and more.
