Raylene has a beautiful voice and when she spoke about the circumstances un- der which Fanny wrote a hymn, she sang it. Raylene sang some of Fanny's less familiar hymns and some very familiar ones including "Blessed Assurance" and "To God be the Glory." Included in the presenta- tion are messages of forgive- ness, humility, salvation, ser- vice and God's sovereignty. In the history of church music, Fanny Crosby stands out as the queen of gospel hymns. Born in 1820, she be- came blind at six weeks old. Submitted by MARY HULL NAUMOFF Fanny Crosby, the blind writer of 8,000 hymns, gave a wonderful program at Or- rVilla's March 3rd, carry-in. Well, wCll admit Raylene Hlavaty impersonated Fanny, but she was so good as she spoke in first person, that we felt she was Fanny. Dressed in a Civil War era dress, which Raylene made herself, wearing dark glasses and keeping her eyes closed so she could better under- stand Fanny's blindness, Raylene was Fanny and told Thank you, Hallie Submitted by The Orrville Historical Society Hallie Runion has been the interim Executive Director for the Smith Orr Homestead for the past 3 months. This experience has been part of her academic requirements for course Studies at the University of Cincinnati. Hallie is the daughter of Jack & Linda Runion of.Orrville. She was instrumental in de- veloping a new brochure to showcase the Homestead as well as hosting several events, such as the Mother Daughter Tea, and the Valentine's Day Dinner just to name a couple. Hallie was also able to attract the services of her sister Jackie and friends from the high school who all pitched in to strip wall paper, and wash walls in prepa- ration for finishing an upstairs room in the house. A new Logo for the OrrviUe Hist6rical Soci- ety is being developed and will be released at a future date. Work is in progress for pa- pering & painting of a large room on the 2nd floor of the house. The goal is to create a "Bride's Room" for the wed- dings that have been booked for this late Spring & Summer. Jamie Pittman, an Orrville His- torical Society Board member, has been heading up this project and has actively been working with these young people. Jamie further commented that the second floor bathroom has been re-plumbed and is ready for tile. The Historical Society hosted a Pizza Party at Orrville's Pizza Hut on Thursday, March 19. John Smucker, President of the society, thanked Hallie for shar- ing her talent and energy with us over the past few months. He also thanked the group of young people that devoted their free time and hard work to the projects in the Homestead. Best of Luck Hallie !
