Giving Tree Installed at OGS Library

The Giving Tree was installed at the Ohio Genealogical Society library entrance today which honors those individuals who have given $1000 or more to the OGS Building Fund since our campaign started in 2003. We still have a little more of the USDA loan to pay but we wanted to honor those who have built this library with more than just a plaque. We really appreciate all the donations that have come in through the years, large or small. They all add up, just like each individual leaf here makes a tree! Thanks go to all of you!
