THROWBACK THURSDAY!!!
A center piece of Groveport history is the 1815 era Groveport Log House. The log house originally sat on the southwest corner of Main and Madison streets, where the Groveport Post Office is now located. Workers discovered the log house as they were dismantling the house in 1974 to make way for the Post Office. Volunteers from the Groveport Heritage and Preservation Society pitched in to preserve the house and in 1974, with help from the United States Army Corps of Engineers, moved it to its present location in Heritage Park. Over the years the log house has under gone historical restorations and renovations, but it remains a historical focal point for Groveport and serves as an example of our pioneer ancestors’ way of life. If you are taking a walk around town, take a peek at this piece of tangible history. The Groveport Log House in Heritage Park is pictured here as it looked in 1978. Back then, the rear portion of the house was detached. (Photo courtesy of the Groveport Heritage Museum.)

It has come to our attention that the vendor application has changed for this year's Apple Butter Day. Although our organization's logo is on that application, our group was not a part of the decision-making for that change.

Tomorrow's meeting, June 27, will be a celebration of our 50th Anniversary. It will be held at 6:00 PM on the third floor of Groveport Town Hall. We will be recognizing our early founders and previous presidents of the organization. All are welcome!

Apple Butter stirrers needed! We cook our apple butter over an open fire for hours and need volunteers to help by taking turns stirring. We will be making apple butter in preparation for next weeks festival THIS Saturday, 10/1. This has been a tradition carried on for years in the Groveport Heritage Society and we love seeing old and new faces stopping by! Its a great opportunity to meet others in our community and honor this tradition.

**Stirrers also needed on Apple Butter Day 10/8 throughout the morning. We make our largest batch this weekend though! Hope to see you there.
