Thank you again for making our October Buckeye Ice campaign a success! We are so grateful to all of you. We have two updates and some pictures to share!
Captions for the pictures are below:

2. Lonnie and Ellen holding the new Buckeye Funder plaque in front of the current cold workroom.
3. Lonnie, Ellen and the newest member of the Ice Core Group, Abby!
The text on the plaque reads:
Buckeye Ice Cold Workroom
This room was made possible by, and it is dedicated to, the 187 donors who made gifts to the Buckeye Funder Campaign
The Columbus Dispatch did an interview with Lonnie and Ellen about the importance of preserving the Byrd Center's unique ice collection and the freezer facility renovation. Read the full story at The Columbus Dispatch.
On December 30, 2020, the Columbus Metropolitan Club will have an encore of One COOL Couple (if you haven't seen this before, check it out, it's an encore presentation from 2017), featuring Lonnie, Ellen and Fred Bertley (President of COSI). Click here to register.
We wish you a happy holiday season filled with everything that brings you joy! We look forward to 2021, and will keep you updated on this campaign as well as Lonnie's upcoming documentary.
