Chatfield College Dedicates Library during Homecoming Fall Festival

October 22nd, 2012 Chatfield College Dedicates Library during Homecoming Fall Festival

Chatfield College in St. Martin, OH dedicated the Fr. Raymond Kammerer Library and Learning Center during the college's Homecoming Fall Festival on Sat. Oct. 20.

The Father Raymond Kammerer Library & Learning Center was made possible by donations from Mark and Rosemary Schlachter, Father Raymond Kammerer, and other contributors.

An extensive traveler, Father Kammerer has amassed a large collection of books and art that he has bequeathed to the College.  He has graciously agreed to move some of this 6,000 volume book collection to the new library with the intention that the College receive the entire collection in the future.   He also plans to have changing exhibitions of the artifacts collection so that current students, faculty, and staff can enjoy his art collection.

“Both my collection of books and the artifact collection are possessions dear to my heart, and I am thankful for  the generous gift from my sister and her husband that made it possible for my collections to be used and appreciated at Chatfield College,” said Fr. Kammerer.

The Most Rev. Joseph Binzer, Auxiliary Bishop of Cincinnati, performed a blessing ceremony, followed by the ceremonial ribbon cutting.

In addition to the Library Dedication, The Homecoming Fall Festival featured a procession to the Ursuline Cemetary, children's games and story hour, a performance by the college's choir - Chatfield Sound, and live music by Mama's Porch.

The 2012 Homecoming Fall Festival was sponsored by National Bank and Trust and Butterbees.
