Upcoming meetings

    Our 11:30 a.m. meetings (none December, July and August) are in the conference room of the Park Shopping Center Branch of the Clark County Public Library, 1119 Bechtle Avenue, Springfield, Ohio. June meetings are pot luck luncheons honoring newly to be received Clark County First Family and/or First Settler members—location to be announced later.

    MEETINGS: The following meetings will be at 11:30 a.m. in the conference room at the rear of the Park Shopping Center branch of the Clark County Public Library, 1119 Bechtle Avenue in Springfield. (We have no December meeting.)
    January 10, 2015: Dick Hatfield will speak to us about Springfield Radio History. He is a disc jockey, emcee and a humorist and a member of The International HORT Club. You may remember hearing him on the radio as "The Imperial Debubba."
    The International HORT Club, a subsidiary of HORT ENTERPRISES, is a non-profit social club or­ganized to provide ludicrous activity for it's members whenever and wherever the occasion calls for it, whether they want it or not.
    Debubbas must comply with the code of ethics.
    Debubbas must at all times fall out clean.
    Debubbas must be male or female (no exception.)
    Debubbas must wear the proper threads, and conduct themselves in a facetious manner.

    February 14, 2015: William L. "Bill" Smith will give his talk which he titles "Courtship and Marriage in the 18th Century - With a Few Scandals." Bill loves history and you have probably seen him at The Fair at New Boston as the rat catcher. He is also a member of the First Families of Clark County as well as a member of the Sons of the American Revolution.
    March 14, 2015: Ski Schanher was our October 11, 2014 speaker for our trolley tour through Ferncliff Cemetery. It has been suggested that Ski speak to our society at a regular meeting to tell about more of the burials which he had not mentioned during the trolley tour, but didn't have enough time. We thank Ski for agreeing to continue his talk at our March meeting.
