As Founders' Day approaches for the Twinsburg area, 50-year residents are invited to share their memories.
The bicentennial committee asks residents who have lived in Reminderville, Twinsburg Township or the city of Twinsburg for at least 50 to submit a recollection on the topic "I remember when ... " to Twinsburg Government Center, 10075 Ravenna Road, Twinsburg 44087, or email them to bicentennial committee member Kim Malusky at Kimberley.Malusky@swagelok.com.
Submissions should be no more than 200 words and include a name, address, phone number and total years of residency.
No one has been able to witness all 200 years of the community's rich history, but these longtime residents have stories of Chrysler, the first fire station, even UFO sightings that can help preserve the last quarter of it.
And in an effort to pay this history forward, all recollections will be recorded and preserved in a time capsule which will be buried this fall at Crown Hill Cemetery.
For more information, contact Derek Schroeder at 330-963-8722 or DSchroe firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participating residents will also receive a commemorative garden flag recognizing them as a 50-year resident at Founders' Day on July 22.
Meanwhile, the bicentennial book "Three Communities, One Heritage" is still available. Bring vouchers to one of the locations listed on the back of your postcard to receive a free copy.
