NEWS FROM THE PAST
Wilbur F. Ramsey, is 95 years old, lived on Kelleys Island from 1932 - 1936, and is the son of Wilbur D. Ramsey, who was the Protestant preacher there during that time period. He and his son, Donald, will be attending the dedication of Kelleys Island's first historical marker at the German Reformed Church on August 8th (2:00pm). We would like to recognize Mr. Ramsey as well as other people who have ties with this historic church. Stop by the sign-in table before the event, pick up your name tag and give us a couple of sentences about how you are connected to the church’s history. Let’s prove that history still lives on!
MAKE SURE YOU ATTEND OUR FREE PRESENTATION AND DEDICATION OF OUR HISTORIC PLAQUE ON AUGUST 8 (SATURDAY)
Since this year our displays will feature sport fishing and ice fishing, our Annual Meeting guest speaker will be Tory Gabriel, from Sea Grant/OSU who will talk about The History of Lake Erie Fishing. He is part of the research teams studying Lake Erie and will have current information to share as well.
A little about MR. TORY A. GABRIEL - Tory is the Extension Educator with the Ohio Sea Grant Program, The Ohio State University. He has worked Stone Lab as a Biological Field Station Assistant. He grew up in Lancaster, OH (just south of Columbus) and graduated from Bloom-Carroll High School. His field of research is Applied Fisheries & Life Science Education. His favorite thing about Stone Lab is that "the classes are inherently hands-on and field oriented, so they're a blast. Students can't help but be motivated and learn about the unique ecosystem around them."
And try your hand at Ice Fishing (without the ice) in our new interactive display.
This is Roy Erne showing off his stringer of fish.
