The talk at the Springboro Council meeting Monday, July 13, turned to concerns over two area fire departments that could close.

Those two are the Fellows Club in Conneautville and the Albion VFD.

Albion was recently in the news as that department appealed for more public support, expressed concern over finances, and held a public meeting. Projections were they could close in 12 to 18 months.

The Fellows Club [see letter in I Say! page 22], according to comment by Jim Glaspy, Springboro Council president, was that the Fellows Club may have just 8 active members. The letter just referred to notes no ambulance service taking place.

Springboro councilman Matt Rowland suggested that Springboro may be able to pull others in as Springboro VFD is viable, currently financially good and seems to be growing [social club].

Though not all the I’s have been dotted and the T’s crossed, the Conneaut School Board approved the tentative sale of a little over 50 acres of land across Rt. 285 from the current Conneaut Lake Middle School when school directors met in July session last Wednesday.

The land has been used as the cross country course, first for Conneaut Lake High School, and the the newly instituted Conneaut Area Senior High.

The land was purchased some years ago with the school district then looking at using the land for baseball and softball fields, the cross country course, and a football practice area.

Those plans never came to pass and with the merger of the three Conneaut District high schools into the one known as CASH, and a former cross country course at the location, the sale of the land was then considered .
