MEDINA – The Medina Historical Society will hold its annual “Show and Tell” meeting at 7 p.m. on Jan. 27 at Lee-Whedon Memorial Library, 620 West Ave.

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. Items pertaining to Medina history are of special interest, but all older items will be welcome. Items shared at the 2013 meeting included matchbooks from local businesses, an ornate pocket watch from Hurd’s Jewelers, a metal pin curler for hair, an ash tray made at Tucker’s, and a rock proof fender protector, to name but a few.

“This is such a fun evening,” said Reinhard Rogowski, board president. “There are surprises every year and always a few mystery items.”
