All Men Should Be Free
Dr. Ronald St. Pierre, Associate V P and Professor Emeritus, The Ohio State University, portrayed Reverend John Rankin, pastor of the Free Presbyterian church if Ripley, Ohio, who took us back in time to 1851. We attended a lecture by Rev. Rankin sponsored the Ohio Anti-Slavery Society. Rev. Rankin shared his views on slavery and some of his experiences in the anti-slavery movement, and the underground railroad. it was a very interesting and lively lecture.

Spring Cleanup of the Martin-Perry Homestead Gardens
For the fourth year, volunteers from the Farmers Insurance Co. and members of the Powell Area Garden Club joined together to spruce up the Martin-Perry Homestead grounds and gardens. The Farmers employees perform this service in memory of Jo Cornish-Gerwig who was a colleague at Farmers and a long time active member of both the Powell Liberty Historical Society and the Powell Area Garden Club. Their service is very much appreciated.
