"Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow" will take place the day after tomorrow.

What was initially to have been a history fair for young people and a photo exhibit at Maple Grove United Methodist Church has grown by leaps and bounds since plans were first made, according to organizer Miriam Bowers Abbott.

"Things are starting to roll in an awe-inspiring way," she said.

Funded by $1,500 awarded in the first round of the Chase 200Columbus Neighborhood Grant Program, the March 3 event at the church also will include a food court with three different food trucks, a mini-museum display by the Clintonville Historical Society and the donation of 222 cupcakes by Anand Saha of Mozart's Bakery and Piano Café.

In addition, Abbott said that attendees will have the chance to place messages in a time capsule that's to be buried and not dug up until 2062.

The event will run from noon to 3 p.m. The church is at 7 W. Henderson Road.

The food trucks to be on hand, organized by Jim Ellison of the Economic and Community Development Institute's Food Fort on the Near East Side, will include Pitabilities, Tatoheads and Yerba Buena Latin Grill. The latter was a popular eatery for a time in the 4000 block of North High Street until the owners were forced to move because of a violation of city regulations. The owners blamed Clintonville Area Commission chairman John DeFourny, but he responded that he was only passing on complaints from members of the nearby business community.

"I'm super-excited that Yerba Buena is coming back to High Street at least for that day," Abbott said last week. "It thrills me that we can support food trucks in this way. I think it's something that makes Clintonville a fun community."

As for the donated cupcakes, Abbott pronounced herself overwhelmed at Saha's generosity.

"Cupcakes for all, or at least 222 ... because 200 was not enough for him," Abbott said. "I love excessive people. I love that about Mozart's."

History fair exhibits prepared by local children will be on display for visitors, as will photographs, professional and amateur, contemporary and historic.
