100th Anniversary of the St. John Building at Andrews Osborne Academy

February, 2024


We've had a mild winter so far here in Northeast Ohio but as we all know that can change on a dime. Many of you will remember the Blizzard of '78, which is still in the record books:

"The worst winter storm in Ohio history struck before dawn on Thursday, 26 January 1978.  The Blizzard of ’78 continued through Thursday and into Friday.  Transportation, business, industry, and schools were closed statewide for two days, with the normal pace of society not returning to the state for five days."

Let's hope to keep it in the record books for a long time!


Be sure to join us for our monthly meeting on Wednesday, February 21, at 7:00 p.m. in the Lower Level Meeting Room at the Willoughby Public Library
