The Portage County Historical Society will host the seventh annual Historical Societies Forum at 2 p.m. Saturday at its research and meeting room, 6549 N. Chestnut St., Ravenna.
As in the past, all historical societies may participate with sharing information about their society, and networking with other organizations dedicated to preserving the historical record.
There are 16 historical societies in Portage County. Many of them have taken shape after celebrating the nation's bicentennial in 1976. The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
Due to the annual event, no tours or research will take place on the PCHS campus on this day. For more information, contact Wayne Enders at 330-310-7421.
