Lunch and learn set

TIPP CITY — A Lunch and Learn program called “Five Flags Over Miami County,” will be offered at noon Friday, Aug. 16 at the Tipp City Public Library. The speaker is Johnston Farm Site Manager Andy Hite. The event is sponsored by Story Point of Troy and Tipp Monroe Community Services. A box lunch will be served. There is no charge, but registration is required by Aug. 9. Visit to register.

Flags serve as the visible representation of a nation. They can motivate strong feelings of both pride and patriotism. From 1745-1862, five different national flags flew over the Upper Miami Valley, and more specifically the land of the Johnston Farm & Indian Agency. This program explores the European powers who held claims to the land as well as the transition to US control. Some of the events that took place under these flags will be highlighted.

PIQUA — An Evening on the Canal, a reservation only event, will be offered at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10 at the Johnston Farm & Indian Agency.

Staff will begin with a hearty meal served in the Education Center overlooking the Miami and Erie Canal. After dinner, guests board the General Harrison of Piqua for a twilight journey on the canal.

Tickets are $35 per adults and $30 for children 6-12 and $30 and $25 for Johnston Farm Friends Council and Ohio History Connection members.
