In a fairly surprising move announced at the Suffield Township Historical Society meeting on Monday August 20th, President Judy Calcei announced her resignation effective at the end of this month.  She cited a need to have more time for relaxation and the fact that she's been at the helm for ten years and now is the time for a change.  Also stepping away from his role as Program Director, Gino Calcei announced he was leaving that post.  Gino had stated for the past year or two that finding speakers has become harder and harder.   As the architect of the acclaimed "Speaker's Series" he has done a remarkable job of finding people to speak on all sorts of subjects.  Another surprise move was that Treasurer Nancy Wise, a veteran to that post for many years, said she would not run for another term, but would remain on the job through the end of this year. 

As allowed by the Society's by-laws, Judy Calcei has appointed her successor.  Taking controls will be a former Suffield Township resident John Saxe.  He currently lives in Licking County and was said to be willing to make the trip back and forth for meetings, programs and other necessities.  Another person who has shown interest in the Historical Society is Elizabeth Phillip-Vance.  She has a background in history and an advanced degree in museum management and also interned at the Kelso House, which serves as Brimfield's historical gathering place.  All who serve the various posts of the Suffield Township Historical Society do so without compensation.

In addition to the personnel moves, the dozen, or so, members of the Society who came to the meeting, learned that the Society has about $5,200 on hand.  They talked about limiting the number of "business meetings" from six to four per year.  Postponed any recommendation of how much to donate to the proposed electronic sign that is being discussed by the township trustees until a cost has been established.  Talked about the next program which will be Monday September 17th, featuring organist Brian Ebie and to be held at the St. Joseph Catholic Church.  The program will begin at 7:00 PM.  Also mentioned was that Ken and Wanda Durick are in the process of selling their Suffield residence and moving to faraway Pennsylvania.  They will surely be missed. 

On a final note, Pauline Persons wanted everyone to know that the 12th annual Suffield High School Reunion is set to take place at the Hartville Kitchen on Saturday September 8th, starting at 5:00 PM.  Reservations are required by September 3rd.  Click here to see the Reunion flyer and registration form.

Wingfoot Lake State Park is Suffield's only park.   It was opened by the Ohio State Parks & Recreation Department in 2009.  Goodyear had operated the park since the 1960's as a private playground for its employees and for corporate retreats.  As the company footprint grew smaller in the Akron area Goodyear decided to close the park in 2006.  To learn more about the park, such as rental of the facilities, visit the park's website:
