Military items to be displayed



Springboro-area U.S. military veterans are invited to loan military memorabilia for display during the annual Springboro Freedom Festival scheduled for May 17-18.

"Although this festival focuses on the mid-19th century and our town's Underground Railroad history, it is really about celebrating freedom,'' said Helen Sproat, festival co-chair. "This year is an ideal time to honor our friends and neighbors who have helped preserve our way of life. We hope that families of deceased veterans will also have pieces they would like to see displayed.''

The Freedom Festival committee would like to hear from veterans throughout the area, not just Springboro and Clearcreek Township. Loaned items may be taken to the Springboro Historical Society Museum, 110 S. Main St., during museum hours: Tuesdays and Saturdays, 11-3. Or call: (937) 748-0801 or (937) 748-2192.
