To the Editor:
On April 14, the Upper Arlington Public Library and the Upper Arlington Historical Society celebrated their expanded partnership with an open house at the Main Library. I would like to acknowledge a few of the people that contributed to making this event a great success.
At the event, we unveiled the new cabinets in the Ohio Room, which will display artifacts from our archives. The cabinets have special significance because they were beautifully crafted by Rick Droege, the great-grandson of King Thompson, and they are located near the table that was used when his great-grandfather was planning the city.
I would also like to thank Chris Taylor, Kate Porter, Chris Minx and our own Society board member, Sara Klein, for all the work that went into making this event a success. Thanks also to Lynn Thompson and Esther Miller for sharing their memories and to Huffman's Market, The Arlington Bank and Cheryl's Cookies for providing refreshments.
And of course, thanks to our executive director, Kate Kallmes, and all the board members of the Society.
I hope the turnout is an indication of the interest that the community has in celebrating our history.
