The Friends of the Mounds meets Tuesday, August 6, at 7 PM in Hopewell 64 on the OSUN campus. We have much to discuss. Rachel Tooker, the new Chief Operating Officer of the Ohio Historical Society, will join us. She is asking us to name representatives for a citizens advisory committee to begin meeting in September -- and to give advice on the make up of that committee. Of course we will also have discussion of Barbara Crandell's upcoming trial and of any other outrages that occur between now and then.
