Circle of Friends: John and Anne Foltz

John and Anne Foltz describe their life together as "a memorable journey." They grew up in different Ohio towns — John in Bremen and Anne from Rio Grande — and met during Ohio State orientation in 1951. Since they shared a common interest in 4-H and a mutual circle of friends, they crossed paths often, even dating members of each other's fraternity and sorority. Still, it was their senior year before John asked Anne for a first date.

Tour of Orton Geological Museum
Wednesday, November 5, 2014, 7 - 8 p.m.
Wednesday, November 12, 2014, 7 - 8 p.m.
RSVP by October 31

Did you know Orton Hall was built using all 40 types of stone native to Ohio, arranged from bottom to top in the order they appear in Ohio's bedrock? The Orton Geological Museum, founded in 1893 by Edward Orton Sr., a geologist and the first president of Ohio State, offers more than 54,000 numbered specimens that serve as an important part of many university courses.

Join President's Club to learn about the geologic history of our state and how our land went from being under a tropical ocean south of the equator 450 million years ago, to mile-thick ice coverings just a few thousand years ago. Guests will have the opportunity for hands-on exploration of fossils and a question-and-answer session with Dale Gnidovec, museum curator.
