Students take tour of city

Third-graders from Barberton Elementary East attended their city tour. Students have been learning about the history of Barberton.

During the week of Oct. 1, they visited the mayor’s office, police station, and the Magical Theatre. In the afternoon they stopped at the Diamond Match Party Center and heard guest speakers Conrad Storad, Dr. Doug Gormley, who spoke on behalf of his grandfather Arthur O. Austin and Bill Anders, who spoke on behalf of Jeep Davis.

They ended the day at The Erie Depot. Pictured are Mrs. Svenson’s, Mrs. Vinay’s, and Mrs. Weigand’s classes. They were three of six that went.

    I wonder if this is a partial replacement for the “Magical History Tours” Steve Kelleher did for the third graders when he was alive.
