South Amherst, Ohio – February 3, 2020

The Firelands Local School District (FLSD) is pleased to announce that the Brownhelm Historical Association (BHA) has provided the District direct support in the amount of a $1,800.00 donation.

Due to the BHA’s fundraising efforts, the district shall receive funds that will:

  • support the Firelands Elementary School Library
  • support students in financial need who wish to attend the historic Philadelphia field trip
  • support a graduating student who is interested in history that is looking to further their education

The fundraising committee of the BHA was able to exceed their personal fundraising goal and chose to dedicate a separate fundraising event for the benefit of Firelands students.

The Firelands Local School District recognizes this strong partnership from one of our great community organizations. Mike Von Gunten, Superintendent of Firelands Local Schools stated, “Support from The Brownhelm Historical Association is greatly appreciated. Their financial assistance will benefit countless number of students and for that we are extremely grateful. “
