Mabel Hartzell Celebrated




On Saturday, May 30th, the YWCA was pleased to be invited to join community members at the Mabel Hartzell Historical Home at 840 Park Avenue to unveil an Ohio Historical Marker to celebrate the home of civic leader Mabel Hartzell. Among her many achievements, Mabel served as president of the YWCA of Alliance from 1946 - 1952. To learn more about Miss Hartzell or her home, visit http://www.alliancehistory.org/ Representatives from Alliance organizations to which Mabel belonged unveiled the marker including Retired Teachers, Board of Education (Mabel was a member before women had the right to vote), Historical Society, Alliance Garden Club, Red Cross, Women's Club, Quota, Sorosis, and YWCA. Look closely on the porch and you will see Board member Dottie Callender who lead the gathering in the Pledge of Allegiance.
