29 Jul, 2019The Vermilion Area Archival Society will meet on August 12th at 7 pm in the Community Room of the Ritter Public Library. We present the final interviews on the flood of 1969 with Don Parsons of Parsons Marina and Doug Keith, Sr., playing off each other, sharing their memories of the disastrous flood. As usual, this interview will be taped and added to the Society's collection of oral histories. These histories can be found on the Ritter Library website and are maintained in collaboration with the library and the Vermilion History Museum. The meeting is free and open to the public. For information on the Society, please contact Sandra Neiding at (440) 967-4190.

The Vermilion History Museum needs your help. The Museum is having a “Name That Person” event on Saturday, August 10, 2019 from 11 am to 3 pm in the driveway of the Museum at 727 Grand Street in downtown Vermilion, Ohio.
Rich Tarrant, curator, has uncovered numerous photographs of unknown people and places from the Vermilion News archives and needs help identifying them. Photos are generally from the 1950s.
Come to the Museum for an hour or so to reminisce, view and help identify the old-time photos. You are also encouraged to bring your Vermilion photos.
The South Shore Four Barbershop Quartet will be performing from 11 am to noon, and from 1 pm to 2 pm, for your enjoyment. Bring a chair.
