Before renovation
On Founder's Day June 19, 2010, The Reily
Historical Society opened it's doors of the
new museum from 2:00-4:00 to the public.  
Everyone was impressed by the great
renovation and the things inside that we
have already accumulated.  We need many
more things  to share with the community.  If
you have any Reily antiques, pictures,
household items, furniture etc. that you
would like to donate, or loan, for display,

MEETINGS:









June 28th, Saturday-  Founder's Day was
great.  Eastfork Junction gave us Bluegrass
music to tap our feet to. The grilled brats
and hot dogs were tasty.  Kids of all ages
had fun and participated in the parade. We
kept the lemonade and ice cream coming to
hungry and thirsty Reily residents. It was
hot,but the rain held off. The Reily Fire
Department and EMTs put on a
demonstration showing how they can use an
impressive piece of equipment to save a
farm worker from grain bin accidents. We
are a lucky community to have this kind of
equipment and knowledge in our  town. The
theme for Founder's Day this year was
Family Farms and Farm Families. Many of our
Reily Family Farms were recognized with a
plaque on Founder's Day. We are a unique
community with generation farms still going
strong. Our museum was open all afternoon
with a new look and more artifacts than ever
to view.  Thank you to all who participated to
make this year a success.

On September 2, at our Tuesday meeting,
Dr. Jason A Rech, Miami University
Associate Professor of Geology gave us
a slide presentation and talk on "The
Glacial History of Butler County and
Soutwest Ohio". He explained how
glaciation in our area forged  land and
water areas that we have today. He
brought with him a 24,000 year old piece
of spruce found in the earth from these
glaciers. We talked of weather patterns
such as global warming and future ice
ages.  After the discussion there were
some interesting questions and answers
from our guests and members.
