Ohio Historical Marker - LakesideAn Ohio Historical Marker will be placed at the corner of Walnut Avenue and Fifth Street to honor the service of the Lakeside Volunteer Fire Department.

A dedication ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 7. All are invited to attend.

The Ohio Historical Markers Program, established in the 1950s, encompasses more than 1,500 unique markers that tell the state’s history as written by communities.

Markers are erected by local community sponsors in partnership with the Ohio History Connection and describe the people, places, things and events of Ohio’s past. There are 20-30 new markers placed each year.

The ceremony is in conjunction with the Danbury Township Volunteer Fire Department Spaghetti Dinner that will be held from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 7 in Wesley Lodge.

The buffet meal will consist of the firefighters’ famous spaghetti and meatballs, salad, garlic bread and dessert. Beverages will also be provided.

The fire department will have several of its vehicles and equipment on display.

Tickets for the spaghetti dinner are $8 for adults and $5 for children, age 12 and under. Purchase of a ticket also includes free admission to the Orchestra Hall movie, “Home,” at 7 p.m. that evening. Tickets for the movie are also available separately for $7.
