News Release - Huron Township History Book
With the 2015 reunion beginning to peak over the horizon, it’s once again time for residents in the former Huron Township and Village of Ripley to update their family’s history.
Planning for the ‘Families and Farms of Huron Township 2015’ Reunion book is underway, and the Huron Township History Book Committee has assembled a skilled team from a diverse background, which will publish the book leading up to the 2015 Ripley Reunion.
“The book is a collector’s item and it brings alive the rich history of our rural families and those who live in the Village of Ripley,” said Joyce Osborne, whose co-editor is Sandra MacDonald.
The 2015 history book will act as an update to the 1975 municipal, 1985 Huron Township and 1995 Ripley history books, Sandra added.
“If you have moved into the area, or from one home to another since the last history books were published, then we need to hear from you,” Sandra said. “If possible, we want to have the most up-to-date information for every lot in Huron Township – from the Kinloss border to Lake Range Drive, and all of Ripley.”
To submit the history of your home, farm or family, log onto www.hurontownshiphistory.wordpress.com and fill out the form with as much detail as possible. High resolution photos can also be emailed to email@example.com, and be sure to include your family’s full name with your email, precise details about who is in the photo, and the concession and lot number of your home/farm. Watch the website for information about where to have printed photos scanned for the book.
There will only be 1,000 books printed and they are expected to cost between $70 and $80. It is highly recommended you pre-order your books, which can be done through the website or by calling Joyce, Sandra or Dianne Heinisch.
There is also a limited number of the Huron Township Sports History Book from the 2005 Reunion available at Royal Oak Books, located in the Ripley Small Business building.
