JUNE 2023 MEETING HIGHLIGHTS
Hello LMHS Members,
We had a nice turn out at the TV and Rock and Roll presentation by Mike and Janice Olszewski. Thanks to everyone who attended.
We hope to start the electrical work on the second floor by the end of July. We have received an estimate for all electrical work needed totaling $28,000. Plan is to submit in September for a brick-and-mortar grant from Ohio History Connection to help with the cost of this. We will need monetary donations as this is a 60/40 matching grant. If you have grant writing experience or want to help, please contact us via our email at LMHS1926@aol.com. You can also donate by scanning in the QR code on the about us page.

SEPTEMBER 2023 MEETING HIGHLIGHTS
The LMHS meeting was held on September 26 at Longwood Manor. The application for the grant from the Ohio Historical Connection has to be delayed till 2024. The city owns the Manor, and they have to submit the application. LMHS will continue to work towards having a grand reopening of the Manor on April 25, 2026, to coincide with Mayor Long Day and the 100th Anniversary of Longwood Manor being built. The plan is to decorate the Manor era appropriately and make it available for small events like adult birthday parties, showers, meeting space. We would like to encourage school children to visit the Manor and learn about local history. Plans are for artifact displays relating to the North Summit Hunt Club, Mayor Long and the City of Macedonia. A profit of over $1000.00 was realized from the Rummage Sale. Thanks to everyone who shopped, donated or helped.
