Wellsville Historical Society
WELLSVILLE - Members of the Wellsville Historical Society held their September meeting at the River Museum. President Tom Davidson thanked all who helped and participated in the Lincoln Week-end that wrapped the 2012 Open Touring Season. The special event was held the last week-end in August and featured a replica of President Abraham Lincoln's coffin displayed in the Mary Clark Parlor. The casket was made available by the Batesville Casket Co. and local arrangements were handled by the Martin-MacLean-Altmeyer Funeral Home. Re-enactors from the Civil War 66th OVI provided an honor guard and members of the 105th OVI displayed a battle ground encampment on the River Museum grounds.
The program for the September meeting was presented by CF Bank employee Steve Rodgers speaking on bank fraud and other financial schemes in today's society. Pictured here, Rodgers is also a part-time officer with the Wellsville Police Dept. Rodgers noted that in most schemes today the elderly, with a nest egg built up, are being targeted. Nothing in life is free and if it sounds too good to be true it probably is just that. Rodgers cautions to be ever vigilant protecting personal identity and account numbers.
The annual Christmas Dinner will be held on December 11. The catered dinner will be served in the Social Room of the Central United Methodist Church. Following the dinner the December program will be held at the River Museum. Reservation forms will be sent in the near future either by e-mail or via snail mail.
Gifts received in September included a portrait given by Bill Boyce of Wellsville's Silver Bank that was in the 4th Street Square where Tonda's Place is now located. Carol Smith donated several historical photographs that were collected by her late husband and Highlandtown resident Terri Utt donated Wellsville Police Dept. badge #4 that belonged to her grandfather John W. Cole. Officer Cole served in the 1920s & 1930s.
The next meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 16 at the River Museum. For more information call 330-532-1018 or 330-532-4692.
