History & Philanthropy
The "Best Class of 2018" kicked off their first session day, "History and Philanthropy" on Wednesday, October 4th. 

The day began with soon to be retired,  Brian Frederick, President and CEO of the Community Foundation, who spoke to the class at the Wellington Eagles Club. Class members enjoyed a tour of the Spirit of '76 Museum, Downtown Wellington, and a meeting with Mayor Hans Schneider, facilitated by Jenny Arntz, Executive Director of Main Street Wellington. 

The class was given the chance to sample some of the local restaurants of Wellington for lunch before heading north to the Lorain County Metro Parks which is celebrating it's 65th Anniversary this year. 

The weather was perfect for a tour and history lesson of Schoepfle Gardens, and the Schoepfle house. We concluded with a trip to the first location of the Lorain County Metropark at Vermilion River Reservation and a tour of the Bacon home. 

The class rounded out the day with a stop at Vermilion Valley Vineyards and a discussion about their history, efforts to endure into the future, and philanthropic efforts. After a homework review and discussion around the day the class adjourned. Some of the members stayed to sample the locally grown and produced offerings of the vineyard. 

The class will meet again on Wednesday, November 1st, for their Social Justice Session Day, with Champion Speaker Virginia Beckman, Executive Director of Genesis House.
