Citizens and community leaders gathered Thursday night to dedicate the Barbara and Ed Heminger Memorial Garden at the Hancock Historical Museum. The late Ed Heminger, who was publisher and editor of The Courier, and chairman of Findlay Publishing Co., was one of the five founders of the museum. Among those at the garden Thursday, above, were the two surviving museum founders: Jim Brucklacher, left, and Joe Opperman. The other three founders were Heminger and the late Harold Corbin and Jack Harrington. The Findlay Rotary Club raised $50,000 to pay for the project. (Photo by Randy Roberts)

Those working on the campaign came up with the idea of the garden as a way to memorialize Ed and his wife, Barbara. Ed Heminger was a Rotarian, and the Findlay Rotary Club raised $50,000 to pay for the project. (Photo by Randy Roberts)
