The Bellevue Historical Society Joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement
The Bellevue Historical Society has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.   #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (November 28th this year), after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back to the charities and causes they support.

The Historical Society joined #GIVINGTUESDAY at the request of a couple of out-of-town members, who found it an effective and easy way to support the work of the Society and the Tremont House Restoration Project.   Donations may be made by credit card or PayPal through our website, www.bellevuehistoricalsociety.com.  Checks may be mailed to the Society at: 
P. O. Box 304, Bellevue, OH 44811.    All donations will benefit the Tremont House Restoration fund, to finish the front façade.  All donations are tax deductible. 

Volunteers are always welcome, to help with a variety of tasks at our office and campus. To volunteer, please contact a member, or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

About #GivingTuesday
#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. This year, #GivingTuesday falls on November 28. #GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners
to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.

One of Bellevue’s oldest, most historic buildings, was the topic of discussion in one of Bellevue’s newest businesses on Thursday evening, as members and guests of the Bellevue Historical Society gathered at the Depot Dining Hall for their Annual Meeting.

The Annual meeting was conducted with election of Board members as the primary order of business.  Board members Ralph Flynn, Peggy Missler, and John Miller were re-elected for a two-year term.  New Directors, elected for a one-year term, were Helen Milkie and Jeannie Gore.
Following the meeting, Mayor Don Berkey spoke about the City’s participation in the Historic Route 20 Association, comparing the trans-continental highway with the iconic Route 66, and the possibilities of  burnishing the reputation of this Historic road, and its importance.

Photographer Dominic Sberna shared a slide show of photos he took of the interior of the Tremont House, especially the second and third floors, which many people have never seen.
