 A big thank-you from LSHOF!

A big thank-you to Coach Dave McFarland and his young men of the Lorain High School football program who were a great help to the LSHOF by serving and cleaning tables at our annual steak fry on Feb. 18! And, of course, a big thanks to all who helped and all who attended the steak fry, which supports our J. Ed Uland Scholarships.
