Letter: Appreciative for show about WPA projects

I just wanted to do a shout out for a jewel in our Lima community, the Allen County Museum.

On a recent Sunday afternoon, Mark Billingsly did a wonderful slideshow and lecture about the Works Progress Administration during the Great Depression and the plus-building in our area during that time. This type of information seems to be getting lost as the years progress. Two more presenters in June will share their views.

Take advantage and support the museum. It’s a plus to Lima.
