Mark your calendars now for the exciting events scheduled for spring at Shalersville Historical Society.  Thursday April 7  will be movie night at our regular monthly meeting;  we will be showing the DVD  –  SOJER BOYS  which details the lives of four Portage County men during the Civil War.  Popcorn and a beverage will be provided for this free and open-to-the-public event which begins at 7 PM.  This DVD was researched and produced by Fred Endres.

This evening also provides you an opportunity to begin your spring spruce up and reduce some clutter at home.  The SHS is partnering with Easter Seals Northern Ohio to not only raise money for our group, but also to help local children and adults with disabilities.  Here is the sweet and easy part:  bag up all your unwanted clothing, blankets, towels, shoes, purses, stuffed animals, backpacks, etc.  Even stained, ripped or torn items can be recycled into something!  Bring all those items that don’t sell at garage sales like shoes, purses, stuffed animals.  It’s a win, win, win proposition for everyone – you, SHS, and Easter Seals.  You may bring your bagged goods to movie night April 7 or drop them off at the historical house Friday April 8th from 5-7 PM or Saturday April 9th from 9 AM to 12 PM.

If you want to help but can’t make any of those times, call Kristen at 330-990-6591 & we’ll make arrangements to assist you.
