MEDINA – The Medina Historical Society will hold its annual “Show and Tell” meeting at 7 p.m. on Jan. 29 at Lee-Whedon Memorial Library.

Historical Society members and non-members are invited to bring along their treasures from the past to share at this popular program.

There are no rigid criteria, but items pertaining to Medina history are of special interest. Items shared at the 2017 meeting included: a unique mouse-trap, an early hair dryer and curling iron, a glass medicine bottle from the Opera House Pharmacy dated 1898, a H. Burton hand-made plate, a Dye Cold Storage poster, a slipper chair for rocking a baby, glass negatives of the Erie Canal, postcards, a Civil War pin, World War I military items and a diphtheria quarantine sign.

“This is such a fun evening,” said Reinhard Rogowski, president of the Historical Society. “There are surprises every year and always a few mystery items. Between us, we can even solve some of those mysteries. We look forward to welcoming some new members.”

The library is located at 620 West Ave., Medina.
