United Women Educators
Twenty members of United Women Educators and two guests from Fort Meigs met May 18 at St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Bowling Green.
A brunch buffet was provided by the Executive Committee, led by Lois Zeh.
Dan Woodward, program manager from Fort Meigs, presented an interesting overview of the War of 1812, focusing on events which determined who would control northwest Ohio and the Great Lakes region. Woodward discussed the political implications, the battles fought and the daily life of the troops at Fort Meigs. Members Mary Ellen Pratt and Mary Kuhlman further personalized the presentation with stories of their relatives who fought in the War of 1812.
New member Susan Biddle was officially welcomed by the group; new member September Kuebler was unable to attend and will be officially greeted at a future meeting.
Well designed scrapbooks of the local history of Delta Kappa Gamma/United Women Educators were admired by the members. The scrapbooks will be given to the Archives at Bowling Green State University. Lois Zeh was congratulated by the membership for the time and artistry she put into the books.
A large collection of items was donated for the Cocoon Shelter.
The next meeting will be a potluck dinner on Sept. 19 at Bethlehem Lutheran church in Pemberville.
