Seeing Eye: Historical Society seeking items

SOCIETY SEARCHING FOR ITEMS: The Howland Historical Society is seeking the public’s input in locating historic items. In July 1976, the Howland Township American Revolution Bicentennial Committee celebration for America’s 200th anniversary had a movie filmed of the day’s events. In the 1980s, the Howland Park Board helped organize the community to construct the original wooden Tiger Town at the west end of the township park. Photographs and film were taken of the event.

The society is seeking any available photos or film of the events for showing at the Brown Mackey Museum (Yellow House) at 8377 Niles-Cortland Road,SE which is open the third Sunday of each month starting in April.

Anyone who has or knows how to find items from either event is asked to contact Historical Society Vice President Warner Taiclet at 330-856-1115.

DRIVE-THRU EASTER: Continuing Healthcare at the Ridge, 3379 Main St., Mineral Ridge, will host a drive-thru Easter egg hunt 5 to 6 p.m. Thursday. Parents can drive through and pick an egg and win a prize based on the number in the egg.
