The Medina County Historical Society hosted the quarterly meeting of the Northeast Ohio Intermuseum Council (NEOIMC) on October 17. Over seventy members of various historical and cultural societies toured the Medina County Historical Society’s home – The John Smart House, the Little Wiz Fire Museum, the Toy and Train Museum, and the Medina Town Hall and Engine House House Museum. Following their tours and a reception at the John Smart House, the group gathered at the A.I. Root Community Room for a dinner catered by Dennis Dube.

After a business meeting, members gave an update of their museum’s activities. The Medina County Historical Society does have copies of the NEOIMC’s membership directory. In it is information about each museum. The night ended with a raffle and door prizes.
