We now come to our annual report of 2010
We continued with our efforts for improving this neighborhood and with it the image of Lorain. We received the Lorain County Beautiful Award for Settler’s Watch.
2011 Annual Report
AND where once there was a little insignificant (to the onlooker )white frame house is now , thanks to volunteers and contributors, a tribute to one of the most significant commanders of the 20th century.
It took 70 years for Lorain’s Admiral Ernest J King’s birthplace to be so recognized. With the co-operation with the City of Lorain and sister organizations, Charleston Village Society managed to do in 10 months what had not happened in decades of talking .
The area has received Lorain County Historical Status as has the Charleston Pioneer Cemetery.

This year found the start of Eric Barnes Heroes Walk as the project to honor the young men from Lorain who had given their young lives so that freedom continues.
This project honoring the fallen from Iraq and Afghanistan , we believe, to be unique in Ohio.
The walk connects the very history of Lorain’s earliest maritime history to those of the contribution by her native son Admiral King with gardens along the way giving tribute to her sons of valor.

THE PASSING OF THE HAT !!!!
IF YOU AGREE WE HAVE DONE WHAT WE SAID WE WOULD DO – IF YOU AGREE WE HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE PLEASE THINK ABOUT DROPPING AN AMOUNT IN OUR ‘CAPTAIN’S HAT’ – THE PROJECTS TAKE UPKEEP, AS MENTIONED IN WHAT IS NEEDED TO BE DONE TO THE TREE LAWN CARVINGS THIS SPRING. NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL, THOSE 5 AND 10’S AND 20’S ADD UP
There will be no spaghetti dinners, steak fry or brunches, for our “fundraiser”. We will not add to your waistline but will gladly lighten your wallet. 100 percent of every donation goes to the projects as designated, we are a 501c3 .
This year we also have to not only continue with phase two of Eric Barnes Heroes Walk, The Charleston Pioneer Cemetery and the carvings at Settlers” Watch but Veterans Park is a disgrace and needs attention.
These projects all take money and manpower. If you can help with either a cash donation, in kind donation or blood sweat and humor please contact us
