Vermilion Historical Society Calendars
The 2024 Vermilion Historical Society calendar is titled “Memories of Crystal Beach Park”. Marlene Calvert Feldkamp and Sandra Calvert Mueller, granddaughters of the founders of the park, have graciously shared their family photos. Remember the Crystal Beach Ballroom where the big bands played or the Thriller Roller Coaster that sped around the tract at 70 mph? Or the Octopus, Silver Streak or Loop-O-Plane?
Calendars are $5.00 each and are available at Brummer’s Chocolates, 672 Main Street and the Vermilion History Museum, 727 Grand Street in downtown Vermilion. They are also available by mail for $7.00 to cover postage. Make a check payable to the Vermilion Historical Society and mail to 5680 Liberty Avenue, Vermilion, OH 44089.
Proceeds from the sale of the calendars are used to buy archival quality supplies to preserve Vermilion’s photos and artifacts.
