Sunday, May 15 marked the beginning of “Light Ohio Blue,” which runs through May 21.
Light Ohio Blue is an annual campaign intended to honor those officers who have fallen in the line of duty, surviving family members, as well as a show of support for all officers in the great state of Ohio.
The Fayette County Historical Society is proud to participate in this annual event and has lit the Madeline and Morris Sharp home in support.
According to www.lightohioblue.org/, “Each year in May, our staff works with Ohioans across the state to light up skylines all around Ohio Blue for law enforcement. We also encourage every citizen to change their home exterior lights to blue to show their support for Law Enforcement personnel. Over the past few years, the Light Ohio Blue campaign has grown exponentially and has reached every corner of our great state.”
In other news from the Fayette County Historical Society, there will now be designated weekends where a local youth will be offering kid tours of the Fayette County Museum.
If interested, either pop in and check to see if she’s present, or let the historical society know a desired date via Facebook messenger on the “Fayette County Ohio Historical Society” Facebook page to see if she is available.
The Fayette County Museum is located at 517 Columbus Ave. in Washington Court House and is open May through September. Hours are Saturdays and Sundays, 1 p.m.-4 p.m.
