Thanks to Friends of Buckeye Lake Library 5K Walk supporters

We also want to thank our individual donors, walkers and walk committee. Beth Smith, Amy Haughn, Nancy Miller, Gail Bagwell, David Fuchs, Pam Reed, Marlene Rushay, Margaret Henson and Linda Baldauf donated many hours to make it happen.

Special thanks to Buckeye Lake Eagles for use of their facilities and parking lot, Mid Ohio Golf Cart for use of a golf cart, Union Township Police for traffic control and the Hebron Fire Department for providing standby medical assistance. Baltimore historian Jim Reed has provided an interesting historical perspective at each of our walks. Thank you, Jim.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 22, next year for a pleasant trip back into history along the scenic Ohio Erie Canal. You’ll have fun, get some history about Ohio’s canal system, enjoy some beautiful scenery and help provide a first class library in Buckeye Lake.

Thanks again for your support.
