Bernsee named relic by Putnam County Museum

Thursday, January 15, 2009

Eric Bernsee, former editor of the Greencastle Banner Graphic for 29 years and recent past president of the Greater Greencastle Chamber of Commerce, has been named "Relic" by the Putnam County Museum for its annual Roast a Relic.

"When Bernsee took his present position handling publicity and promotion for Dixie Chopper he probably thought he was out of the very public local eye he endured all those years in the newspaper business. Not so," said Putnam County Museum Board Member Jinsie Bingham.

Bernsee agreed to let his "friends" have at him at the annual fundraiser to be held on March 8 at the Dixie Chopper Business Center. Tickets will be available to both museum members and the public.

Those unable to join the fun in person may make a donation to the museum in Bernsee's honor.

More details will be available soon. Save the date of March 8 to honor a man who has been very much a part of the Putnam County Community.
