Historical society meeting: The Avon Historical Society will meet April 5 at Old Town Hall of 1871, corner of Detroit and Stoney Ridge roads, at 7 p.m. There will be discussion of the Lorain County Preservation Network. Marilyn Fedelchak Harley, network coordinator, will explain what the network is, where it has been, and what it hopes to accomplish.

Marilyn will talk about what the Ohio Historic Preservation Office of the Ohio Historical Society would require for Avon to be a certified local government and how this would benefit Avon. She will also describe, with examples, the Heritage Home Loan Program, and will share how it can be of incentive for the owners of older homes to preserve and protect their distinctive and historic qualities.
