Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society to Host "Coffee and Conversation" Tomorrow Morning (Saturday, June 10th)

Chet Wirring will be a guest of the Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society June 10 to begin the fourth season of the series "Coffee and Conversation". Join us at 10:00 a.m. for a special time when friends and family gather to share their stories and reminisce of living Southern Darke County.

Chet opened Trojan Pizza House, Arcanum's only pizzeria in 1967. He'll tell the story of how he started his business, but don't expect him to share the recipe for his pizza sauce.

Many of us remember going to Trojan Pizza after ballgames, and also for a special night out with the family. Did you work for Chet at Trojan Pizza? What was your favorite pizza? Chet will want to hear your memories too.

After making pizzas for 23 years Chet then opened an Antique Shop, Furniture Restoration and Chair Caning business at the same location. Chet still enjoys chair caning.

The series will continue July 8 when cheerleaders from squads of different years will lead sports fans down memory lane just as they lead teams onto basketball courts and football fields. We welcome cheerleaders from any squad to share their experiences and memories.

Dr. Jesse Heise, Esther Hoover, Gregg and Patty Spencer will join us August 12 to reminisce about living in Pitsburg. Did you know Pitsburg was founded under the name of "Arnettsville"?

Plan to join us for all three sessions. Bring a friend and your stories too. Our guests will want to hear who you remember and what silly things they did.
