News & Events

We would like to thank all the members of the Norwood Area Historical Society who made our four annual events—the Ice Cream Social, the Labor Day picnic, Hunter’s Lunch, and year-end potluck—possible. We had several new members join us for the potluck; it will be fun to get to know them. Look for the write-ups on these new neighbors on this site. And the beautifully crafted “Bull’s Eye” quilt made expertly by the Norwood Needles group was won by Jim and Jacque Depriest’s granddaughter, Meredith Miller! Congratulations.

The village was aglow with lights and pumpkins as we hosted the second annual Halloween Trick or Treat Night last October. A smashing success— thirty-five costume-clad children, accompanied by parents and grandparents, came for the fun. The children were all excited as they clamored on board the hay wagon towed with Hank Klooster’s tractor and driven by Jim Kolka. After a round of trick-or-treating in the village, cider and donuts awaited the chilly munchkins at the Old Schoolhouse which houses the Norwood Area Historical Society. Spearheaded by DeEtta Gilland, and made possible by many volunteers, this annual event was fun for all. Stay tuned for further info about how you can participate in 2013!
