AHS donates books

On December 19 a contingent of Aurora Historical Society Board members made a donation of 400 copies of its signature title, Aurora: From the Founding to the Flood, to the fourth graders at Leighton Elementary. Each student received a copy of the book and each of the eight fourth grade classrooms received an additional set for future use.

Dee Ann Pochedley’s class enthusiastically welcomed John Kudley, Kathlyn Brown, Dick Fetzer, Michael Thal and Neil Klimko to join in the distribution. Dick, co-author of the volume, signed each student’s copy. The students were polite, appreciative and very bright. They also received an invitation to visit the Historical Society Museum.

One of the missions of the Aurora Historical Society is outreach to the community. There can be no better way to accomplish that goal than through engaging of our young people.

We hope that you will enjoy some glimpses of that endeavor.

  • No connection, it’s just that English names sound classy and we want to be classy.

    Hello , I was recently visiting Cleveland on a business trip and went to Aurora Farms outlet , while there I noticed that some of the street names contain “Yorkshire” .As I am from Yorkshire in United Kingdom I wondered if there was a historic connection with Yorkshire or is this just a coincidence .
