EAST LIVERPOOL — The East Liverpool Historical Society will hold it’s 37th annual dinner 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 2 at the East Liverpool Country Club, “In the dark of the night”. Each year the society attempts to highlight a historical event or other historical subject to present. This year our usual “cast of characters” will highlight the history of the funeral homes and embalmers that once preserved our inhabitants. Along with the usual presentation, the guests will also be entertained by several local musicians, Bob Walker, Dottie Orlo, and Jim and Tammy Bean. Who knows, we may even have an expert “graver” with interesting historical information about Riverview Cemetery. Cost of tickets are $25 a piece and are for sale at J. Sabatini Shoes in Calcutta until Oct. 24.
