On a brisk November Saturday (Nov 2nd), twenty- four student members of the Rutherford B. Hayes High School National Honor Society arrived at the Delaware County Historical Society to clean up the historical center grounds.  They joined three Historical Society volunteers including Roger Koch, Ralph Au, and Susan Logan.  Together the volunteers raked, gathered, and bagged the mountain of leaves that descended from the massive trees surrounding the Cryder Historical Center on E. William Street Delaware.
