MP presents ‘Steel Magnolias’

After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the Madison

County Chamber of Commerce returned to holding its annual

meeting in-person. The highlight of the event, which took place

on March 24 at the London Country Club, was the announcement

of the 2022 Bell Ringer Award winner.

The award, which honors a person who truly cares about the

community and strives to make it better, went to London resident

Amy Rees.

Born and raised in Madison County, Rees is a graduate of

London High School. She went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in

business administration from Ohio University, where she met

her husband, Matt. They later moved back to Madison County

to start a family. Even though she was busy raising two boys,

Rees always would take time to help others and community

groups.

In her professional career, Rees worked for multiple nonprofit

agencies, including United Way-Madison County and the

Madison Health Foundation. From there, she began to get more

involved on the volunteer side by serving on multiple not-forprofit

boards that focus on the betterment of the county. Besides

sitting on these boards, she is a person who can be called upon

by any group to lend a hand when in need.

“It’s about having each other’s back through

it all.”

“When Emily LeGault, our stage manager,

said that, I thought it was the perfect

description of what this play means,” said

Katie Manns, Madison-Plains art teacher

for grades 7-12 and director of the school’s

upcoming production of “Steel Magnolias.”

Originally a play by Robert Harling, the

story was turned into a movie in 1989 starring

Dolly Parton, Sally Field, Shirley

MacLaine, Daryl Hannah, Olympia Dukakis

and Julia Roberts.

“I’m a huge fan of the movie. I knew I

wanted a play that showed the importance

of being there for each other,” Manns said.

“Everybody has been through a lot the last

couple of years. What better play to show

the true meaning of friendship and family

than ‘Steel Magnolias.’”

The entire play takes place inside Truvy

Jones’s beauty salon. Truvy, played by junior

Hannah Geyer, is a friendly go-getter

who serves as the glue of the group. She has

taken Annelle (eighth-grader Maggie

Wethington), a shy beauty school graduate,

under her wing.

Shelby (sophomore Josiah Baker) and her

mother, M’Lynn (junior Molly Fahy), visit

the salon to have their hair done. Shelby is

getting married and trying to live her best

life despite her medical condition. M’Lynn is

an all-around protective mamma bear.

Providing comic relief, especially when

they are together, are the cheerful Clairee

(freshman Holly Schiering) and the sarcastic

Ousier (senior Andrew Geyer).

“Andrew is the only male in the show,

and he plays a woman,” Manns said. “I’m

super proud of him for taking on this role.

It has definitely been a stretch for him, but

“Amy Rees is a staple in our community

that you will see helping out at many

events,” said Steve Lelonek, a Chamber

board member and past Bell Ringer winner,

during the award presentation ceremony.

Rees is first vice president of the Madison

County Chamber of Commerce board, a

chairperson for the London Rhythm & Rib

Fest, a founding member and president of

the London Community Organization, and

past secretary of the Downtown London Association.

She is employed as the executive

assistant to the administrative offices of the

city of London and serves as London city

council clerk.

She also was the founding member and

a driving force behind Access Cowling. Access

Cowling was a group that raised more

than $500,000, publicly and privately, to

bring an all-inclusive playground, ninja

course and walking paths to Cowling Park

in London. The project came together to memorialize

a child who passed away and

started as a $20,000 project.

“Rees drove this committee to aim high

and raise the larger amount of money to be

able to bring this playground which serves

people from all over the area. It has become

a destination point for many families,”

Lelonek said.

The project has inspired other nearby

communities, including West Jefferson and

Mount Sterling, to start the process to build

their own all-inclusive parks.

“Amy’s service to the community and love

she has for the county is second to none,”

Lelonek said. “She is a kind woman who can

make people feel welcome in any setting.

Amy has dedicated herself to Madison

County while unselfishly giving her time, efforts

and resources for the betterment of the

community.”

Additional awards

In addition to the Bell Ringer Award, the

Chamber honors several other individuals,

groups, and businesses at its annual meeting.

This year’s Retail/Service Award went to

Mabe’s Clothing & Athletic Apparel, a London

business that celebrated its 100th anniversary

last year. Owner Dave Mabe

accepted the award. Dave’s father was one

of the Chamber’s founding members. Mabe’s

works frequently with London City Schools,

offering items for the Raider Rack, a service

that offers free clothing to students in need.

Mabe’s also offers discounts to customers

who donate to the Raider Rack.

The 2022 Industrial Award went to Medline

Industries, which constructed and

began operating a medical products distribution

center in West Jefferson in 2020.

Over the last year, the company has hired

approximately 475 team members. Medline

has made every effort to hire locally and use

local vendors for building upkeep and maintenance.

Additionally, the company donated

thousands of face masks and hundreds of

cases of hand sanitizer to local entities.

This year’s Non-Profit Award went to the

Madison County Senior Center, which has

been serving seniors in Madison County

since 1976. The center’s mission is to encourage,

foster and develop opportunities

for senior citizens through education, recreation,

respite, nutrition, adult care services

and assistance in independent living. The

center works with several local organizations

to fulfill that mission, including Madson

County Ride, Madison County Job &

Family Services, local home health agencies,

Community Action, the Veterans Administration,

and local assisted living

facilities. The center also uses local businesses

to help seniors with such needs as

home repairs, appliance replacement, and

health equipment needs.

Kiwanis honorees

On March 14, the Kiwanis Club of London hosted the top 10 juniors from London High School and the top 10 juniors

from Madison-Plains High School, along with their parents, at the London Country Club. The guests were treated to

dinner. Each student received a certificate naming them a Junior Kiwanian for 2022 for their academic achievements.

I think he is going to take all the laughs. Every time he

is on stage, I find myself and everyone else laughing.”

The entire cast has taken well to the material, Manns

said, especially considering most of the six have never

seen the movie.

“So, they went into it with fresh eyes. They’ve really

developed the characters for themselves. I like that—no

preconceived notions. They’re really enjoying themselves.

They’ve been a great cast to work with,” she said.

Manns is excited not only about this show in particular,

but about the potential for the school’s theater department

in general. She graduated from Madison-Plains

in 2006. As a student, she realized she wanted to be a

theater major after performing in one of the school’s stage

productions. She went on to triple major in art education,

studio art, and theater at Wilmington College, then

taught and directed at West Jefferson and schools in Yellow

Springs and Indiana. This is her first year teaching

at Madison-Plains.

“It’s neat that it’s come back full circle,” she said. “I

have big plans for the future for the Madison-Plains

theater department, and I hope the community can be

a part of it. This place means a lot to me.”

Manns opened auditions for “Steel Magnolias” to the

junior high as a way to spread awareness and build excitement

about the theater department. In addition to

Wethington landing one of the roles, several junior high

students are working on the crew.

“Next year, we hope to have a bigger cast and maybe

start doing musicals again,” Manns said.

She thanked the school district’s administrators and

staff, as well as people from the community, for stepping

up to help with this year’s show.

“I can’t say thank you enough.”

Show times for “Steel Magnolias” are April 8-9 at 7

p.m. and April 10 at 2 p.m. Doors open 30 minutes before

each show. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students.

Tickets may be purchased at the door, by

scanning the QR code on promotional posters around

town, or by visiting “Madison-Plains Theater Department”

Investing in camera system

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The city of London plans to buy a camera

system for inspecting storm sewer and

sanitary sewer lines. The cost is estimated

at $100,000 to $120,000.

Such systems can be used to find and diagnose

problems in the lines, such as damage

or blockage due to tree roots. Currently,

the city borrows camera systems and crews

from Mount Sterling and West Jefferson on

an as-needed basis or hires outside companies

to do the work.

The purchase of a camera system will

allow the city’s street department to do that

work themselves and on their own schedule,

according to Bill Long, street superintendent.

“It’s been talked about for years, but

we’ve always just kicked it down the road,”

Long said about the purchase.

City council member Greg Eades sponsored

legislation calling for the appropriation

of $60,000 from the general fund to

help cover the cost of the system. Long proposed

that the city’s remaining American

Rescue Plan funds ($58,000) be used to

cover the rest of the cost. Council approved

the appropriation in a 6-0 vote at their

March 24 meeting.

Long is researching camera system vendors.

The plan is to choose a company approved

by the state purchasing system so

that the purchase does not need to go out to

bid. This approach will save time, as the

bidding process usually takes 60 to 90 days.

“We hope to have (the system) purchased

in the next few weeks. The timing

will depend on what’s in stock,” Long said.

Eades noted that having the system inhouse

doesn’t mean the city will instantly

know where all the problem areas are. He

said it will take time and manpower to map

out the entire city.

Alley vacation request

David Mars, owner of Mars Property

Services, is requesting vacation of the alley

that sits between 62 S. Main St. and 64 S.

Main St. The company is rehabilitating the

building at 64 S. Main St.

Currently, the building houses six onebedroom

apartments on the top floor. The

company plans to convert those into four

two-bedroom units. Mars wants the alley vacated so that he can

configure the exits from the apartments to land on the easement.

He also wants to convert the alley area into a courtyard that can be

used by the building and the adjoining property.

“We’re just looking to make it a nice space,” he said.

Mars noted that the project includes redoing the building’s facade

and, later on, rehabilitating the commercial spaces on the bottom

floor. He said another benefit of vacating the alley is that there

would be room for four parking spaces.

Council member Josh Peters noted that David H. Jackman,

owner of the abutting property, had not signed off on the request.

Mars said Jackman is not in favor of the alley vacation at this time.

Peters recommended that the request go to the city’s public service

committee for further discussion. The request will be on council’s

agenda for two more readings. A public hearing will take place at

the start of council’s May 5 meeting.

Tax incentive review

The Tax Incentive Review Council met on March 10 and determined

that the following London companies are meeting the terms

of their agreements under Community Reinvestment Area tax incentive

requirements: Nissen Chemitec America, Triple Play

Restaurants (Taco Bell), elitefts.com, Stanley Electric, and BST.

The committee is required by state law to regularly review the

agreements for compliance. City council must sign off on the committee’s

recommendations, which then go to the state. Council approved

the committee’s recent review with a 6-0 vote at the March

24 meeting. The review was due to the state by March 31.

Getting rid of unneeded equipment

Council approved the Board of Public Utilities’ request to sell a

2005 trash truck that has sat unused for more than two years.

When the city changed to new trash trucks, the 2005 vehicle was

no longer usable.

Upcoming meetings

The following committees will meet at city hall, 20 S. Walnut St.:

board of zoning appeals, April 5, 5:30 p.m.; parks and recreation

commission, April 5, 6 p.m.; public service committee, April 6, 1

p.m.; city council, April 7, 6:30 p.m.; finance committee, April 11,

4:30 p.m.; historic review board, April 12, 4 p.m.

South Charleston events

Mark calendars for

Heritage events

The South Charleston Heritage Commission

is gearing up for several events this

year.

• Tour of Churches. Sue Mattinson, Heritage

Commission trustee, will lead a free

walking tour of churches at 2 p.m. May 1.

The tour starts at St. Charles Borromeo

Catholic Church, 31 S. Chillicothe St., then

moves on to South Charleston United

Methodist Church at the corner of Church

and Jamestown streets, and ends at First

Presbyterian Church, 15 N. Chillicothe St.

At each stop, Mattinson will provide a

brief introduction, a church representative

will share some history, and tour participants

will have time to walk around the

sanctuary. Refreshments will be served at

First Presbyterian Church which is celebrating

its 200th anniversary this year.

• Women of South Charleston. Sue Mattinson

had originally prepared this talk for

2020, the 100th year since women received

the right to vote. The pandemic derailed

those plans. The talk is back on for this year

and tentatively set for 2 p.m. July 10 at the

Opera House located on the second floor of

South Charleston’s town hall. The new stair

lift is operational, making the program accessible

to everyone. The program is free.

Donations will be accepted but are not required.

Proceeds go toward the maintenance

of the historic opera house, train depot and

log house.

• Heritage Days Festival. This year’s festival

will be one day, instead of two, and is

set for Sept. 24.

Houston Library

offers Easter fun

Houston Library, 5 W. Jamestown St.,

South Charleston, offers the following activities.

For details, call (937) 462-8047.

• Storytimes. Every Thursday through

May 19 at 11 a.m. for 2- to 4-year-olds.

• Lego Club. Second Monday of each

month, April 11 and May 9, for school-aged

children only, 3:30-4:30 p.m. Show off your

creativity. All supplies are provided. Creations

will be left on display at the library

until the following month.

• Easter Fun Family Night. April 12 at 6

p.m. For families with children of all ages.

Hop on down to the library for Easterthemed

activities, like Peeps Catapult and

Funny Bunny Faces. Make a Bunny Corner

bookmark to take home.

LONGNECKER

Gertrud Longnecker, “Trude,” 94, of London

and formerly of Loudonville and Marietta/Newport,

Ohio, left our world on March

16, 2022, at London Health and Rehab.

“Mom” to her children and many of their

friends, “Oma” to her grandchildren and

many of their friends.

An avid gardener, she could grow anything

from a seed or cutting and her home

was always surrounded by plants. She

called it her own little Eden. She loved animals

and always had a pet or two. She took

great joy in simple things: a pretty stone or

shell, the sunrise, bird songs, spending time

with children and collecting nutcrackers.

She was creative, and her imagination was

boundless. She loved to sew, quilt, paint and

craft. She enjoyed giving. Anyone that

stopped by might get cake and coffee or a

plant. She gave candy bars to the mail carrier

and drivers of the trash truck.

She was born on Dec. 15, 1927, in Bad

Soden Am Taunus, Germany, where she

met and married Clifford Longnecker while

he was stationed in nearby Frankfurt during

the Korean war. They moved to the USA

in 1952 to raise their family. In 1973 she became

a naturalized U.S. citizen and was

very proud of this accomplishment.

She was preceded in death by: grandson,

Steven Plice; her parents; her sister and

brother; and Cliff Longnecker.

obituaries

Survivors include: her children, Kenneth

(Julie) Longnecker, Kathy (David McAtee)

Longnecker, Kim (Paul) Swider, Kelly Longnecker;

nine grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren,

five great-great-grandchildren;

and many nieces and nephews in the U.S.,

Germany and Italy.

She loved a good a party. Her family will

celebrate her life on June 5. There will be

lots of stories told and memories shared. We

will show how she lives on through each of

us. Please plant a flower, tree or bush in her

memory or donate to a charity of your

choice. We appreciate the care and love

given to Trude and her family by the staff of

London Health and Rehab and Bella Care

Hospice. Thank you to each and every one

of you. The family was served by Eberle-

Fisher Funeral Home and Crematory, London.

Condolences may be shared at

beloved wife in Heaven on March 24, 2022, while at

W.Va., to the late Lem and Irene Curry, Jerome graduated

from Matewan High School.

He married the love of his life, Brookie Curry, in

1962, and together raised their family in West Jefferson.

In addition to his parents, Jerome was preceded in

death by: his wife, Brookie, who passed in December

2021; his sister, Nancy Jane Deckard, and his brothers,

families; and by his many, many friends.

Jerome was a family man who supported his sons in

all of their endeavors. He loved to play poker, loved fishing,

enjoyed working on cars and anything mechanical,

and loved to play golf. The sparkle in Jerome’s eyes was

for his wonderful wife and his three beautiful granddaughters.

Despite all of his hobbies, his favorite activity

was spending time with his family.

Annual JA Alumni Association banquet returns

The Jonathan Alder Alumni Association will hold its annual

banquet this year following a two-year hiatus due to

the pandemic. At 6 p.m. May 28, the banquet room doors

at Der Dutchman will open with dinner served at 6:30.

The cost is $25 per person. Pre-paid reservations are

required. Make checks payable to the JA Alumni Assn.

and mail to P.O. Box 82, Plain City, OH 43064. For additional

information, call Pat Anderson at (614) 403-9236.

This will be the first banquet in 78 years without the

presence of the late Mary Andrews Mitchell, who lent

her time and prodigious talents to the Alumni Association

and many other local groups and activities.

The Alumni Association has a long history, beginning

with the Plain City Alumni Association, which was

formed in 1889, just three years after the first senior

class graduated from the Union School on South Chillicothe

Street.

The earliest alumni banquet for which present-day

organizers have a record is the fifth, which was held in

1893 in the “K. of P. Hall” (probably the Odd

Fellows/Knights of Pythias Opera House on Gay Street).

The newspaper article reports that the doors opened at

8:30 and nearly 90 guests attended. The program began

at 10 with music and recitations. Dinner followed with

a number of toasts and responses. “The rest of the

evening was spent upstairs in conversation and music

until 2 o’clock when all left feeling that one more joyful

season had passed.”

The social hour at the 1894 banquet was described

as “old friends renewing acquaintances and reviewing

the scenes of the past year and relating experiences in

the college, on the farm, in politics or in business and

in teaching. For it is a well known fact that these young

men and women are not of the fossilized kind who, when

the diploma is received, think that is all life’s activities,

but they are an active progressive band, climbing up the

ladder of success to the temples of honor and fame.”

The 1894 banquet was notable for a municipal innovation.

“The hall was lit up by the new incandescent

lamps until half-past one when darkness was declared

at the power house by the stoppage of the dynamos….

The winking of the electric lights warned the people

Public invited to submit art for exhibition

London Visual Arts Guild extends an open invitation

to residents in Madison County and surrounding communities

to participate in an art exhibit called “Images.”

This special exhibit will be held May 5-29 at the London

Arts Center, 121 E. First St. An opening reception is set

for 2-4 p.m. May 6. The reception and show are free and

open to the public.

This will be the guild’s second open-to-communityshow

at the arts center.

A Mayor’s Award will go to the participant whose

work is closest to the theme. People’s Choice Awards

also will be given.

For more information and art drop-off deadlines, stop

by the London Arts Center: Tuesdays, 4-7 p.m.; Thursdays

and Sundays, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.; or Saturdays 10 a.m.-

2 p.m. Or pick up applications at Relevant, Yesterday’s

Ewes, Yes & Amen, or Mimi’s Village Pickins, all in

London.

that it was time to go, so good byes were said, when the guests and

others stepped out into the moonlight and each sought his sleeping

place.’

The Plain City Historical Society has a partial collection of banquet

programs from 1910 on. Some of the early menus might raise

a few eyebrows. In 1921, bread and butter, pineapple salad, olives,

pressed pork, brick ice cream, angel food cake and coffee were offered.

In 1944, the Plain City Alumni Association published a roster of

graduates from 1886 on. The Historical Society has a list of graduates

up to 2018, mostly from Plain City and Alder, but also some

older ones from Canaan, Monroe and New California.
