ARC LbNA # 55606
|Placed Date||Sep 18 2010|
In 1881 Clara Barton established the American Red Cross. The purpose of this organization was to assist in major disasters and to give aid to those serving in our nations armed forces. Since that time, the Red Cross has become a household word and is widely considered one of the most beneficial charitable organizations in the United States.
This letterbox is a tribute to Clara Barton and to all those who have followed in her footsteps with the American Red Cross.
This box is located near the Sandusky County Red Cross building in Fremont, Ohio. Go to the building located at 1247 Napoleon Street. Turn on to Jefferson Street and proceed to the parking lot in the rear of the building. As you look South on Jefferson Street toward the railroad, you will see a large tree. Where the tree forks, you will find ARC hidden under some loose bark. This one would be best if you used a red ink pad.
The tree is rather exposed, so be careful not to be too conspicuous. When returning ARC to its home, please take care to cover it with the bark again.
