Friday, July 28, 2017, 6:00 - 7:30 PM

Come join the Society at Wartinger Park for the city sponsored "Party in the Park". All of the houses and barn will be open for tours. Parks and Recreation staff will have games and activities for the family.

   

Saturday, August 26, 2017,  Sales start at 8:00 AM for the "Barn Sale".

Wartinger Park has a barn. It is a lovely barn but it is not for sale. We are going to use the barn to hold a fundraiser to sell as many donated items we can collect from our members and friends. Please begin now to clean out closets, basements and garages to set aside good quality items you wish to donate. Can't wait until August to get rid of your stuff? We have a member who is willing to allow us space in her garage to collect your items until the sale. Just for clarification, we will be unable to accept any baby items as Ohio law forbids reselling many types of items for safety reasons. We will also not be accepting clothing, mattresses or upholstered items. Thanks in advance for participating in order to help us fund the expenses and projects of  the Society. If you are willing to help in any way, please contact the Chair of this event, Amber Carlos, by e-mail at ambercarlos@hotmail.com or at 912-5766.

"The 1969 Lammers' Barrel Factory Fire" will be the topic of Mr. Kip Smith's presentation about the Barrel Factory fire that lit up the night sky throughout Beavercreek and the region with exploding barrels of chemicals being tossed hundreds of feet into the air on the night of October 7, 1969. The factory sat at the corner of Patterson Road and Grange Hall Road. Kip Smith, the retired Fire Chief of Beavercreek Township, was at that fire and has film footage he will share. The meeting will be held at Peace Lutheran Church, 3530 Dayton-Xenia Road at 7:00 p.m. in the lower level Fellowship Hall. The public is invited to this free event.
