The museum, located at 14-01 Forest Drive, will be open from 1 to 4 o'clock with no admission charge on Saturday. Among the features is a bread-slicing machine on loan from the Smithsonian. It's displayed in a special enclosure resembling the old Chillicothe Bakery owned by Frank Bench. The first sliced bread was sold in 1928 using a machine invented by Otto Rohwedder.

The next meeting of the Grand River Historical Society at Chillicothe is October 8th featuring a program by Jim “Two Crows” Wallen. He'll bring the Lewis and Clark expedition to life with stories and sharing of artifacts from the company of 40 men who traveled to the Pacific Ocean and back. Wallen will take on the persona of George Shannon, the youngest member of the expedition. The presentation the night of October 8th will be at the Chillicothe Elks Lodge, located at 401 Harvestor Road in Chillicothe.

Reservations are being made for the pork loin dinner that night. The cost is ten
dollars. The meal is at 6:30 with the program around 7:15. Reservations can be made
by calling Grand River Museum (646 13-41) or Ron Wilder at Chillicothe. (646 0502)
