We are postponing our monthly meeting until January 23rd, 7pm @ J. Gumbo’s Baltimore We are hoping to have a great turnout! Everyone is welcome to attend this inaugural meeting of the year. We will be planning fundraisers for the Opera House and the Farmers Market. If you have any questions let us know
Please submit your nominations by January 1st 2013 – we are always looking for new volunteers. You may nominate the current officer, or suggest someone new.
The BDRC has started our Capital Campaign to raise $50,000 for the first phase of the Baltimore Opera House restoration (Formerly known as Town Hall Theater). The timing is crucial for this first phase as the funds need to be raised by August of 2013 for a grant cycle we will be applying for. The property adjacent to the theater need to be purchased to permit an addition to house elevators, restrooms, HVAC equipment and other amenities that are not able to be placed inside the original structure.
In order to facilitate this process, we have established an account with the Fairfield County Foundation. This will ensure all funds donated for the specific purpose of the Opera House will be administered by the Foundation, and all contributions will be tax deductible. For more information on how to help, or if you would like to donate funds- you can email us at BDRC@hotmail.com , or call 614-450-0237. If you would like to donate directly please make a check out to Baltimore Opera House Project Fund and mail to:

It’s that time of year – October 25th from 6-7:30 we will be enjoying Trick or Treat Theater inside the Baltimore City Hall and Opera House. Thanks to donations from the VFW and VFW Ladies Auxiliary, we will be able to provide bags of candy to the kids coming through the theater. We are happy to showcase this beautiful piece of our Village History.
Its hard to believe the final Farmers Market is getting near. Some of you may wonder why we are closing the Market earlier this year. It all has to do with Mother Nature. Over the past few years we have gone until the end of October and the daylight just doesn’t last. In the interest of safety we decided to end the Market while we still had daylight. So come one out for the last few weeks. We are still looking for sponsors for the Fall Fest. We need a donation of $25 for Cider and $35 for donuts. If you can help in any way let us know!
Our CHAIRish the Arts CHAIRity auction will be wrapping up this week. A HUGE thanks to all those that participated. It was great fun, and the Lancaster Festival Art Walk was fantastic – the comments were really wonderful.
