Friends Home Celebrating Centennial Anniversary “November 15, 1905 - Auspicious Opening of Friends Home: The opening of the Friends Boarding Home, Thursday, November 9, was a crowning success in all its appointments. All the visitors seemed more than pleased with the building and the entertainment, and the management of the Home is happy and full of gratitude for the friendly courtesy and substantial interest manifested by the visitors. It is a day long to be remembered.” (The Miami Gazette) And it will be remembered with a festive day of celebration at the Museum at the Friends Home on Sunday, November 6th, from 1-4 p.m. Refreshments and period entertainment will accompany the sharing of memories from the past 100 years of the Friends Home as the Museum creates a living history record for future generations. The Museum is located at the corner of Fourth and Miami Streets in Waynesville, just two blocks off the historic downtown shopping area. In 2000, a small band of history- and civic-minded individuals opened the Museum at the Friends Home, which is “committed to preserving all aspects of the history and culture of Waynesville, as well as Wayne and Massie Townships of Warren County, Ohio. The Museum seeks to preserve important material aspects of the area’s history and culture, generation by generation, and to provide a variety of interactive educational opportunities for the public that will make the past come alive and will help people envision the future of their local communities” (MFH Mission Statement). The former boarder rooms now house themed exhibits from vintage clothing to children’s toys, to military memorabilia. Specific displays also record the history of local towns such as Corwin, Lytle, Oregonia, and New Burlington, as well as Waynesville. “By incorporating these villages and their history into our museum,” explained Curator Dolly McKeehan, “we are hoping to put names and faces to these areas to show they were thriving communities before we all became suburbia.” The Museum also houses the Burnett Butterworth Library/Archive, a collection of Friends Monthly Meeting journals, Quaker genealogy records, and a sample of books left by boarders over the years. Nearly 800 items provide a historical treasure for researchers. Tours of the Museum and of the surrounding Quaker district are available during regular hours Sunday and Wednesday from 1 to 4 p.m., or by appointment, April through December. Special arrangements can be made for tours at other times by calling McKeehan at the Museum, 513.897.1607.

Residents of the Victoria Glen Condominiums will not worry about mowing their lawn, placing mulch in the flower beds, shoveling snow or cleaning out their gutters. “Owners will not have the traditional time consuming and back breaking outside maintenance associated with owning a house” according to Ron Beech, the project developer. The layout and landscaping plan for the thirty eight units has been designed to create a park like setting and encourage a sense of community. The interior of the single level homes are spacious. The builder, Brian Garcia, explained that “most condominium developments in southern Ohio are 1,300 to 1,500 square feet, our units are over 1,700 square feet. The additional space can make a big difference.” The homes offer 2 and 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2 car garages, walk-in closets, patios and a sunroom/office or den. Homeowners can select from many options to customize the homes to satisfy their personal taste. Also, the units can be modified for handicapped accessibility. Finally, double digit increases in energy costs has everyone concerned. The new homes will meet stringent standards which will save owner’s money. The development will be located on the north side of Franklin Road adjacent to the village limits. To obtain more information about the new homes call Ron Beech at (937) 672-7100.

(In Case of an Emergency): Cell Phone Safety Tips Cell Phones, seems everyone has one and is talking on it at the most inopportune time. Since cell phones are so much in use today lets have them work for us. It is the worst case scenario. You are hurt in a car accident. You're unconscious, and emergency crews have no idea whom to call. They look in your cell phone under ICE and they have a contact-next of kin. At this time there is a National "In case of Emergency (ICE)" campaign going on now. This idea originated in England after recent terror attacks in London. Emergency workers were able to contact the next of kin. The idea is that you store the word "ICE" in your mobile phone address book and along with it enter the number of the person you would want to be contacted "In Case of Emergency.” In an Emergency situation ambulance and hospital staff will then be able to quickly find out who your next of kin are and be able to contact them. It's so simple that everyone can do it. For more names you can use the other words such as ICE1, ICE2, ICE3, etc. For more information, please contact Chief of Police Kenny McCloud at (513) 897-8010 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Commonly Overlooked Water Wasters The Waynesville Utilities Department would like to remind everyone to be mindful of how much water we use and often times, unknowingly, waste. Did you know… …A dripping leak consumes 15 gallons of water per day and 450 gallons per month. …A 1/8 inch leak consumes 3,806 gallons of water per day and 114,200 gallons per month. …Studies show that dripping faucets and leaking toilets account for as much as 14% of all indoor water use, equivalent to 10 gallons of water per person of water lost per day. …Toilet bowl leaks cause approximately 95% of the complaints of excessive water use charges. Most leaks are caused by poorly seated tank balls, worn valves or other minor components. Remember to periodically check your toilet tank elements and keep them in good working order, much as you would your vehicle. It could save you money! …In the summer, 50% to 70% of the water demand is for outdoor use, such as watering lawns, washing cars, etc. …A garden hose accidentally left on overnight may use twice as much water as the average family uses in a month.
