Sardinia Historical Society has eventful year

The Sardinia Historical Society has had a memorable 2015. In 2014 the Society took on the major project of the restoration/ reinstallation of the Sardinia Cemetery Fence. Lee McRoberts of Metalcrafters Unlimited and his whole crew took on the task of completing the work. Metalcrafters did an awesome job on the fence! The Society took on the task of raising the necessary funds to pay for the project. Much of 2015 was spent planning and preparing for a variety of fundraising events . The Sardinia community and usinesses joined us as we worked to complete the task. Our fundraising events were all well supported by the Sardinia community. Many of the events were attended by folks from the surrounding Brown County area. As the result of the tremendous support,the Society was able to have completely paid for the fence project earlier this fall!!

The Society has had several opportunities to share our historical displays with the community as well as the Sardinia School. The Sardinia Branch of the Brown County Library has allowed us to have historical displays as well as the opportunity to participate in their summer program for adults to ” Escape the Ordinary “. We were able to share some extra ordinary Sardinia history.

The Brown County Christian Academy opened its doors to us by providing us a place to meet. We also have a place to share and store some of our historical displays. We are grateful to Headmaster Eric Purdy!

Once again this year our hearts were saddened by the deaths of two very dear friends. We were saddened to learn of the deaths of Paul Young and Jerry Pruitt. With their deaths the area lost a wealth of historical information concerning Brown and Highland Counties.

The Society is continuing to work on our map project to list the businesses of the Sardinia community.

Members are reminded to attend our first meeting of 2016 on January 4th at 10:00 am at the Brown County Christian Academy. This will be an organizational meeting including the election of officers for the next term.

We welcome visitors at any of our meetings. New members are welcome to join at any meeting throughout the year.

As the Society looks forward to 2016 we will continue our mission to preserve and protect the history of the Sardinia Community and the area surrounding. We are always excited to learn more of the history concerning the Sardinia area. We encourage the community to join us as we learn and share together! The Sardinia Historical Society wishes a Happy Healthy New Year to all.
