“We know that tourism plays an important role in the economics of our county and that role is going to continue to grow. In order for us to be able to continue that momentum, the Chamber Board of Directors and Visitors Bureau Committee saw a need to establish a position in our organization to focus solely on the promotion of local attractions, arts, history, and showcase the beauty of our area, in turn bringing more visitors to Champaign County. We are very fortunate that Polly Trenor is going to take on this role and we believe she will do a excellent job.”
Trenor, a graduate of Urbana High School and Otterbein University, resides in Urbana with her husband, Patrick, and their three daughters. She has been an educator for the past 14 years, most recently at Graham Local Schools as a vocal music teacher. She is a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Urbana and leads the choir on Sunday services. Polly says she is looking forward to “the opportunity to share my passion for my hometown with others.”
Dr. Kroeger sought to bring an awareness to and record the story of these historic structures. His project began with painting at least one barn in each of Ohio’s 88 counties and writing an essay about it. This project evolved into a book, Historic Barns of Ohio.
Continuing his work, Dr. Kroeger has offered fund raiser opportunities to historical societies in Ohio and the Champaign County Historical Society has invited him to share his barn stories and demonstrate his painting technique using palette knives and the impasto technique.
Following the demo painting, the painting will be raffled off with proceeds benefiting the CCHS.
Dr. Kroeger met with CCHS Board Trustee, Ken Wright, in January and toured Champaign County searching for old barns. From his photos taken that day, he painted thirteen Champaign County barns which were used for a 2023 Historic Barns of Champaign County calendar created by CCHS Board Trustee, Vince Gonzalez. The calendar will be unveiled at the meeting and available for purchase.
Following the program will be a book signing of Dr. Kroeger’s book, Historic Barns of Ohio and refreshments will be served.
The public is invited to attend. There is no admission charge for the event and participation in the raffle is entirely voluntary.

The program includes brief commentary and performances in the drawing room and access to exhibits about the writers in the hallway and library.
