Please mark your calendars for Thursday, June 11 from noon 1 p.m. to Rally for History! at the Ohio Historical Center, located at I-71 and 17th Avenue in Columbus. The Ohio Senate voted yesterday to approve the next two-year state budget, which includes significant budget cuts that would reduce the states investment in the Ohio Historical Society to the lowest level since 1994. Now the budget goes to a conference committee made up of a small number of House and Senate members as well as Strickland Administration officials. There is still time to make an impact and help restore funding for historic sites and the Societys Outreach programs that affect students, teachers, local history organizations and Ohio communities. Its time to Rally For History! Please join us on Thursday, June 11. FREE parking and admission to the Ohio Historical Center for participating in the rally!
