Women’s History Month

Top 10 Women in History of Henry County, Ohio

Who are the Amelia Earharts, Helen Kellers, Rosa Parks, Billie Jean Kings or Oprah Winfreys of Henry County Ohio? March is recognized nationally as “Women’s History Month” and a new collaboration project locally would honor and celebrate the achievements of our Henry County women. Let’s take the time to look back at the many achievements of women through our history and the huge strides made by women today.

This county-wide effort needs your nominations of no more than 100 words telling us why your nominee should be on the “Top 10 list for Women in History of Henry County, Ohio”. Judges will be chosen from the historical societies within Henry County to review your short profiles, which are due by midnight Sunday, March 31st. This initiative will honor the past, inform the present and inspire the future. We will observe locally with a traveling exhibit in preparation for the celebration of 200th birthday of our county in 2020. This is the first of many county collaboration projects. Contact information is email: [email protected], Mail: PO Box 23044, Grelton, Ohio 43523, Facebook: History of Henry County, Ohio 1820 or Phone: (419) 966-1648 Peggy Bohls or (419) 592-1786 Joel Miller at the Henry County Chamber of Commerce.

It was 76 years ago today that the world received the shocking news that Pearl Harbor had been attacked. President Franklin D. Roosevelt called it "a day which will live in infamy." America was now in World War II.

Today we honor and remember the souls lost that day and pay special tribute to "the Greatest Generation" and the immense sacrifice that they made.

Fellow supporters this is a plea for help.

We received cement pieces from the Malinta-Grelton school building from the demolishing company this summer. The location they were stored has asked us to find another location. We are in NEED of storage for the pieces until they are able to be used to create a Memorial (hopefully at the OLD school property).

Please spread the word!

PS - Will confirm the amount and space needed, but was stored at Malinta Village building (area in the old fire station).

Interesting 25 minutes of video of production and discussing that we need to work together. Jobs of all (farmers, transportation, factory workers, managers, engineers, etc.) need to work for that end product.

At the end of video (about the last 5 minutes) it shows the Malinta-Grelton School with small buses pulling up with students getting off. The building (owned by Patrick Henry High School board) was taken down summer of 2017 and last used in spring of 2016. Enjoy the video for a small kick of education.
