HISTORY ROUNDTABLE WITH MIKE GILBERT A SUCCESS!


History Roundtable with Mike Gilbert

Approximately 50 people gathered in the Hayes Center auditorium on each of six Saturday mornings to discuss and learn more about Sandusky County in the Civil War Era with Mike Gilbert. Mike is recently retired from teaching History at Fremont Ross. One participant reflected the thoughts of so many; "We shared stories and added to our knowledge about our community's past. Mike helped us learn more about the lives and the number of prominent individuals from our county who took part and sacrificed much during the Civil War!"
