Forgotten communities topice of event
TROY — Forgotten Communities will be presented by Doug Christian at 6:30 p.m. July 23 at the Troy-Miami County Public Library.
Learn about the history of the forgotten communities of Miami County.
In the early 1800s, small communities began to develop across Miami County. These communities provided most of the essential needs for those living nearby and many were once very prosperous.
With transportation moving from canals, rivers, unimproved roads and small railroads to more complex highway and railroad systems, many of these communities declined in size and eventually became abandoned.
This free program briefly examines 20 of these communities throughout Miami County.

Music series continues
TIPP CITY — The new Friday night music series at the Tipp Roller Mill resumes Friday.
The new genre known as “Rock-N-Roller Mill” will feature two local bands. Beginning at 8 p.m., the band Wreckage Check takes to the stage followed by the McCrazies at 9 p.m.
Wreckage Check started in the summer of 2013 with guitarist Greg Stockdale and drummer Jordan Wise. Shortly after their debut, vocalist Vincent Cain joined, then later singer/songwriter Alex Dahle of the space punk quartet “Free Fall Theory.” All members are high schoolers from the Tipp City area. Their music will include a mix of cover songs along with some original material ranging from light rock to all out metal.
The McCrazies started out of Tippecanoe High School with a few students and teachers jamming for certain school events. The Tipp City band has now grown and branched out to take their live show to various venues in the Dayton area. The McCrazies mainly play a variety of covers that include rock, pop and blues.
The theater is located at 225 E. Main St., Tipp City.
