Support the Mahoning Valley Historical Society and mark your place in history with the purchase of a Donor Bar.
In celebration of our Valley’s remarkable legacy of innovation and entrepreneurship, exemplified by the creation of Good Humor® ice cream on a stick, it is a pleasure to announce the Harry Burt Donor Bar Campaign. The Harry Burt Donor Bar Campaign provides a unique opportunity for you to support the new History Center and to mark your legacy through the purchase of a personalized, engraved plaque hand wrought by Wendell August Forge. This partnership between Wendell August Forge and the Historical Society is perfect, as the Forge maintains a tradition of hand craftsmanship dating back to 1923.
You are invited to purchase a Harry Burt Donor Bar for yourself, or to honor a friend, loved one, or organization. We need support from our members to ensure that the History Center will be an outstanding asset in the revitalized downtown corridor. The Donor Bars are available in three different metals, and your gift is tax deductible. Donor Bars are permanently displayed in the History Center.
If you would like your donor bar to be “In Memory of” or “In Honor of” or to have a name other than the name listed above, please email MVHS Development Director, Linda Kostka, with instructions.
