'Titanic' subject of June 6 Historical Society meeting

A presentation about the ill-fated ship Titanic is planned for the Pickerington-Violet Township Historical Society's meeting at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 6, in the Historical Museum, 15 E. Columbus St. in Olde Pickerington Village.

Storyteller and Pickerington resident Jamie Culver will present vignettes about the passengers on the luxury steamship RMS Titanic that met with disaster in the North Atlantic during the early hours of April 15, 1912.

Culver -- an Ohio State University graduate, former journalist and high school social studies teacher -- said his "childhood fascination with the Titanic and love of history" prompted him to create the program.

Culver currently serves as vice president of investments for Stifel Nicolaus in Lancaster.

Historical Society meetings are free and open to the public in the museum's lower level, which is handicap-accessible through the entrance located at the rear of the building.

The Pickerington-Violet Township Historical Museum formerly served area residents as a Carnegie Library.

Light refreshments will be provided, and the Historical Society's new pictorial history book, will be available for sale.

Additional information about the meeting or membership in the Pickerington-Violet Township Historical Society can be obtained via email to; or by calling 614-382-5989.
