Worthington Historical Society Antiques Show: Something For Everyone

mongenas2014swopesecretaryBoth experienced collectors and antique newbies should mark their calendars for the upcoming Worthington Historical Society Antiques Show, an annual event that is now celebrating 70 years of success. Scheduled to take place on January 31 and February 1, the show boasts a little something for everyone--regardless of style, taste or experience. “The great thing about the show is that the dealers really bring a wide variety of items,” said Director Kate LaLonde. “In fact, I have what I consider to be a mid-century, modern/eclectic/contemporary style, and I came home with a painting and a necklace after last year’s show.”

Age is also not a factor. The 2014 show attracted multiple generations, including a 12-year-old from Riverlea who arrived at the show in search of treasures. He found what he was looking for--a Native American textile, a knife and a needle.

This year the event is being held a few weeks later than usual so as not to interfere with the holidays, and it will feature several new exhibitors and their items, from city, country and painted furniture to stoneware, decoys, antique dolls, redware, quilts, linens, antique writing instruments, estate and costume jewelry, silver and much more. Last year a late 19th century Sheraton ladies secretary from New England attracted many admirers and sold early in the show.

Proceeds from the show, which typically attracts between 600 and 700 shoppers, benefit the preservation of the Worthington Historical Society properties, including the Orange Johnson House Museum, Jeffers Mound and the Old Rectory.

Marja Mills to present at Worthington Library's next Hear & Now Author Series

In 2004, Marja Mills, a former reporter for the Chicago Tribune, moved into a rented house in Monroeville, Alabama, next door to the town’s most famous resident, Harper Lee, the publicity-shy author of the beloved novel To Kill a Mockingbird, and her sister, Alice. During the 18 months that Mills lived in Monroeville, she spent time with the sisters, accompanying them on drives, dinners at Burger King, and duck feedings. Earlier this year she published a memoir about her experience: The Mockingbird Next Door: Life with Harper Lee. Mills will present at the Worthington Library’s next event in the Hear & Now Author Series. Scheduled to take place on Thursday, January 29 at 7 p.m. at the Peggy R. McConnell Arts Center (777 Evening Street), the event offers a promising peek at the enigmatic author’s life through the eyes and ears of Mills.

The Hear & Now Author Series started in 2012 as a way to bring emerging and established writers to town. In addition to the Worthington Libraries, the event is sponsored by the Peggy R. McConnell Arts Center and Holiday Inn. Past presenters have included Pushcart Prize-winning poet George Bilgere, Newbery Award winner Jack Gantos and New York Times best-selling author Augusten Burroughs.

They are designed to provide everything from food and clothing to health screenings, legal services, haircuts, VA and Social Security benefits counseling, and job search information. The events are typically a collaborative effort between local Veterans Affairs offices, other governmental agencies, and community agencies serving the homeless.

High Street in Worthington (614-436-0700) and the Holiday Inn Express at 8670 Orion Place in Columbus (614-781-6100).

Holiday Inn Worthington Connects with the Local Community

Are you worried that your house won’t be able to accommodate all your friends and family this holiday season? Relax. The Holiday Inn on North High Street in Worthington is running a special promotion during the holidays--$60 a night for friends and family of Worthington residents. It’s all part of Holiday Inn’s 60th anniversary celebration--$60 to celebrate 60 years in business. In fact, if you reserve multiple rooms, they will even throw in a complimentary meeting space for the entire family. And, the restaurant will prepare a holiday meal. Eric Bearfield was hired as manager of the 232-room hotel in June. Since that time, he’s been focused on connecting the hotel with the local community. “One of my primary objectives is to build a strong tie with the community,” he said. “The more successful we are, the more successful the community is as a whole. I want to drive as many opportunities as possible to reach out to the community and help the community.” That means you might be seeing more promotions for Worthington residents in the weeks and months ahead, but it also means that Bearfield plans to work closely with the corporate community, the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce and the Convention and Visitors Bureau of Worthington.

Bearfield thinks there are a few noteworthy things about the hotel that local residents tend to overlook. For starters, the full-service restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Plans are underway to expand the menu, which is currently focused on salads and sandwiches, and they’re in the process of creating a family meal-to-go for local residents. Other features include 16,000 square feet of meeting space, a heated indoor swimming pool and a fitness room, which is scheduled to double in size with all new equipment in the next two weeks.

Prior to accepting the job, Bearfield worked at the Columbus Airport Marriott. Before that, he spent 10 years as a general manager with Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. “It’s great to be in the Worthington community,” he said. “I have bought into the community personally, own a home here, and have my kids in the schools.”
