RTHS is observing its silver anniversary


ENGLEWOOD — The Randolph Township Historical Society is observing its 25 anniversary this year with several events.

On Saturday, June 10, the second annual RTHS car show will take place from noon to 6 p.m. at the History Center, 114 Valleyview Dr., Englewood. Registration of cars costs $10 at the Center and begins at 11 a.m.

The Center will be open for visitors, and there will be a food truck. There will be prizes awarded as well as a raffle.

The center also holds Food Truck Sundays. The next one will be July 23 when Hearts Hot Dogs will be at the Center.

On Wednesday, June 14, Clayton Mayor Mike Stevens will speak at 7:30 p.m., following the RTHS monthly business meeting at 7 p.m. There is no admission fee, and the public is welcome at both the meeting and the speech.

As a current fundraiser, the Society is selling Roosters cards entitling the purchaser to a 10 percent discount on all dine-in orders through the end of the year at Roosters locations in the area. The cards cost $10 and are available at the History Center or from a member.

The RTHS also has a limited supply of booklets recording memories of the area during the Baby Boomer years in the late 1940s, through the 1960s. These are available at the Center for $10.

On Tuesday, Aug. 22, at 7:30 p.m., the Englewood Civic Band will perform a concert on the grounds of the History Center. Again, admission is free.

The History Center is open for visits by the public from 2 until 4 p.m. on Sundays, anytime the OPEN sign is out, and also by appointment at (937) 832-8538.

The society meets on the second Wednesday of every month at the History Center, at 7 p.m. April through October and 1 p.m. November through March. The public is welcome at the meetings.

The Randolph Township Historical Society was formed in January 1998 to preserve the artifacts and records of community life of the geographic entity of what was Randolph Township.

Starting with about a dozen people, it now has almost 175 members, many in other states following its activities in its quarterly newsletter or on the web site (www.rths.org) or the Facebook page.
