Bay Village Historical Society Meeting and Potluck Dinner: Take an Adventure Ride Through Cleveland’s Calamities

Dutka will relate talks of Cleveland’s greatest blizzards, most destructive tornadoes, nastiest storms and worst floods. Learn about a pseudo tidal wave that pounded the Lake Eerie Shore from Bay Village to the Pennsylvania border, and the phantom ice age that caused scientists to predict that glaciers would soon return to Northeast Ohio. Hear about a river that burned, mayflies that swarmed downtown by the millions, credible UFO sightings and a June blizzard that raged in the city. Dutka will explore the intriguing stories of the famous and lesser-known Cleveland area disasters.

The 7 p.m. program at the Bay Village Community House is preceded by a 6 p.m. social and 6:30 p.m. potluck dinner. Admission is free for members and open to the public.
