  1. My thanks to everyone who helped make this moment in History remembered. I hope the City of Bexley will see fit to placing dignified plaques such as this in other historic parts of the city. The children as well as adults will reawaken to how important this cross roads city of Bexley is to America. Walter Buchsieb Past Board member
