GROVE CITY — Don't miss this year's seminar lineup at the Grove City Historical Society.

■ 7 p.m. Sept. 23 -- Tom Burdick, owner of one of the oldest businesses on Broad Street will give us the rich history of Burdicks. This store has been in several locations and was not only a men's clothing store but also a bus station, soda fountain and more.

■ 7 p.m. Oct. 7 -- Mary "Skip" Sample's talk is entitled "Passion, Pride and Pathology in Possessions." Come and see what your friends collect and how they live with their collections.

■ 7 p.m. Oct. 21 -- members of the Committee to Preserve the History of the Grove City Highland Band will share their history that spans the last 50 years of the "Pipe Band" which operated from 1948 to 1998. Through their efforts the story of this unique marching band that represented Grove City internationally has a permanent home in the Grove City Historical Society.
