I will surely go to Bath Township Historical Society Museum to attend this event and good presentation that I want to see. It was a good thing that a civil war reenact and speaker was invited to present Alvin Coe Voris. Ted Dudra has always been known in his field, and I am happy to see that he is given this wonderful privilege. I am sure that he will do his best to present Mr. Voris in the best way he can. Don't worry because he has our support all the way!

Mirror lake is a deep water quarry located on Mirror Lake Drive in bath township Ohio. It was dug circa 1843 because of Dillard clay that was used in the latter part of the civil war and the first part of World War One. The water was the main source of the reason the quarry closed. Pumps could not keep up with the water creeping in from the river that passes to the back side and the natural spring found at the 65 foot depth. Later the hole was used as a swim club. Over 40 people have drowned in the quarry over its history. Their ghosts continue to be seen on the path that surrounds it. The largest fish in the quarry is said to be larger than a 6 foot man and it was spotted in the summer of 1966. The girl who spotted it was Connie Dotson Seggerson who lives in Villa Hills Ky. She was bit by the fish on her right breast while swimming in the lake and it required stitches at Saint Rita’s hospital in Lima Ohio. It has been over 50 years and the giant cat fish is yet to be caught. Who knows what big fish live in the quarry ? There is a large steam shovel that lies on the bottom of the lake in the middle. There is also a pair of Don Alverzos tweezers somewhere in the lake. These tweezers are made out of 24 carrot gold and would be considered priceless if found. Many of the people who have drowned in the lake have yet to be found. People who have been swimming in the lake claim that their ankles have been grabbed. In 1925 the Lima news took a picture at the lake and it seemed to show an arm sticking up in the center and that has yet to be explained. The lake reaches a depth of 65 feet and has yet to be explored due to visibility problems.
