Historical Society to Honor Lucy Simpson at Annual Holiday Open House.
Norwood, OH., November 19, 2007 - On Saturday, December 8, 2007, the Norwood Historical Society will be holding its annual Holiday Open House from 4 to 7 p.m. at the historic McCoullough House on the grounds of the Lindner Park Nature Preserve. This year’s event will be highlighted by the presentation of the very first Norwood Historical Society Lifetime Achievement Award. The award, which will henceforth be made annually, recognizes the efforts of those individuals who have, over the years, helped establish and maintain the mission of the Society.
This year’s recipient is Ms. Lucy Simpson, a founding member and tireless supporter of the Society since it’s beginnings in 1977. To mark the event, Ms. Simpson has graciously agreed to make a special presentation of the Norwood History slide show for which she has become so well known.
As usual, the Holiday Open House offers the general public a great opportunity to view the McCoullough House decked-out in full Holiday dÈcor. Light refreshments will be served and tours of the house will be offered to those interested in learning of its rich history.
Everyone is invited and encouraged to bring friends and family members. Children, in particular, are welcome. Ms. Simpson is a regular guest in the local grade schools where countless youngsters have enjoyed her slide presentation.
The Holiday Open House takes place on Saturday, December 8 from 4 to 7 p.m. Ms. Simpson’s presentation and the presentation of her Lifetime Achievement Award will commence at approximately 5:30. Naturally, there is no charge for admission to this event. Brochures about the Norwood Historical Society will be available with membership forms and information on how you can donate to help further the work of the Society.
We look forward to seeing you and your guests and wish each of you all the best during this year’s Holiday Season.
