Thank you for continuing to support the renovation projects at the Heritage House. None of the projects would have been possible without our members, community, and people from around the country.
LAHS is beginning our 2nd Memory Brick Drive. We have many people who have asked us to do a second drive. Some have thought of people they forgot about the first go round. Some have had recent happy events they want to commemorate. There are many reasons that you might want something remembered in the courtyard.
Also, we are creating a new walkway from the front door (which is the exit) around to the porch and entrance which is on the side of the house. The sales will help us build the walkway.
The first 50 bricks sold will go in our existing courtyard. They will replace plain bricks. The remainder will go in the new walkway.
Each brick will be sold for the same price as before-$50. You will need to fill out a form with information you want on the brick.
There are many ways to place an order, so choose the one that works best for you: *call or text Linda Scott at 740-352-0202 *contact Kay Wortman on the LAHS Facebook page *contact officers-Lisa Spriggs, Sherry Spriggs, Pat Smith, Tom Adkins, Desra Wortman *print order form from LAHS website and submit to any member or mail to PO Box 21, Lucasville, OH 45648
Linda Scott formed a committee, along with Tom Adkins and Colleen Crabtree, to discuss and make decisions on who would be included in the first group of Lucasville Legends. They established the criteria for which people would be considered for this honor. And they decided that banners will be displayed along US RT 23 during August and through September. The price to sponsor a banner is $100. The criteria is: 1. Must be dead. 2. Must have contributed to and/or brought honor to this community.
The 1st group of honorees are: John Lucas Bishop Frances McConnell Branch Rickey Roy Rogers Nell Bumgarner Mary Belnap Moulton (Darlington, Groninger) Alice Barker Molly Lauman Holton Diamond Estelle Crabtree Doctor Coleman Florence and Charlotte Thomas
Honorees to be included in the future are: Dr. John Warwick Harold Young F. S. Alley William or Robert Lucas
