Schools collect pop tabs

Mohawk Elementary has accepted a challenge from Bucyrus High School Student Council to collect pop can tabs to support The Ronald McDonald House. This will consist of students collecting pop tabs and bringing them into school. This competition began March 18 and will concluded March 29.

A large part of Leader in Me is involving the school, home and community through service opportunities and other events. As a part of seeking to understand our differences, the Mohawk Elementary Student Lighthouse Committee has planned and is currently helping the school celebrate National Disabilities Awareness along with the pop tab drive.

Many families in our community have benefited from the Ronald McDonald House foundation and are eager to share their support. Sixth grade Student Lighthouse member Caitlin Ogg added, “I think this is a great way for kids to help others and give back. Things like this really help everyone come together.” Students also delivered letters requesting any help with this drive to local businesses encouraging them to collect tabs as well.

Mohawk Elementary will collect as an entire school, weigh the tabs, and send the proceeds to the Ronald McDonald House. The school with the largest total weight will be declared the winner. One pound requires approximately 1,128 tabs.

Spiegel Grove’s ‘Boys of Summer’ return for another season of vintage base ball

FREMONT – As opening day for Major League Baseball teams has passed, the Spiegel Grove Squires are getting ready for another season of the vintage version of the sport.

The Squires, the vintage base ball team at the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums, bring to life the sport in the 1860s, when it became organized with standard rules of play for clubs. Back then, base ball was spelled with two words.

Members of the Spiegel Grove Squires are volunteers. They have studied and learned the methods of play used in the 1860s, including playing bare-handed. Players are called ballists, and they wear period-style uniforms and adopt the language of 19th-century base ball during their matches, as games were called during the 1860s.

The team has a full schedule, including three home games at Spiegel Grove, the grounds of the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums. Admission to home games is free.

Home games take place on the lawn behind the Hayes Home. The Squires are sponsored by Wright Leather Works.

The 2019 schedule:

• May 5 – 1 and 4 p.m. at the Base Ball Festival hosted by the Eastwood Iron Horses at Caesar’s Creek Pioneer Village in Waynesville.

Author to discuss book about President Grant, sign copies

FREMONT — The author of a book about Ulysses Grant and the issues he faced during his presidency will give a talk and sign copies of his book May 10 at the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums.

Copies of the book is to be available for sale and signing. Admission is free.

In this book, Kahan focuses on the unique political, economic and cultural forces unleashed by the Civil War and how Grant addressed these issues during his tumultuous two terms as chief executive.

The book, released in June 2018, sheds new light on the business of politics in the decade after the Civil War and portrays an energetic and even progressive executive whose legacy has been overshadowed by both his wartime service and his administration’s many scandals.
