Mohican-Memorial Forest and Shrine Receive Contribution from Columbia Pipeline Group


PERRYSVILLE, OH – The Mohican-Memorial Forest and the Ohio Federation of Women’s Clubs have received a contribution of $25,000 from Columbia Pipeline Group (CPG). The funds will benefit the Memorial Forest Shrine and the horseman’s group camp area, which are located in Mohican-Memorial State Forest.

The Memorial Forest Shrine is an Ohio war memorial that contains the handwritten names of many Ohioans who have made the ultimate sacrifice defending our freedoms.

“We are appreciative of Columbia Pipeline Group’s contribution to the Ohio Federation of Women’s Clubs and to the Mohican-Memorial Forest," said Robert Boyles, chief of the ODNR Division of Forestry. “This contribution will help improve and maintain this historic memorial in a manner befitting the names of the men and women it honors.”

CPG's $25,000 contribution was made through the charitable foundation of its parent company, NiSource. The Women’s Clubs will use a majority of the funds for the Memorial Forest Shrine, and the remainder will be designated for improvements to the horseman’s group camp area, which will be coordinated by the Wayne County Chapter of the Ohio Horseman’s Council.

Some of the plans for the contribution include replacing the flag pole, repairing the sandstone walkways, continuing the memorial brick walkway project and installing a concrete pad at the horseman’s group camp area shelter building.

The Memorial Forest Shrine is dedicated to the memory of 20,000 Ohioans that died in World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Persian Gulf War.
