drives of World War II. Actually the steamer was quietly sold by
the City of Wooster to a scrap dealer who then sold it to a fire
apparatus collector who lived near Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.
In 2001 the son of the collector, Charles Panella, contacted a
Wayne County resident about selling the 1869 Allerton steamer.
Representatives of the Wayne County Historical Society and
local officials met with Panella, confirmed that the steamer was
indeed Wooster's. Panella wanted to see the steamer return to its
original home and despite higher offers from fire museums sold
the steamer to the historical society for $50,000.00.
On March 30, 2001 the 1869 Allerton steamer returned
to Wooster. It was delivered by truck to the Wooster Fire
Department for cleaning and preparation for being once again
horse-drawn and paraded to its exhibit space at the Wayne
County Historical Society.
The Allerton Iron Works manufactured steam fire pumpers
only from 1867 to 1871; Relief Company No. 4's steamer was the
12th unit produced by the company. It is the only known Allerton
steamer still in existence - unfortunately it is no longer operable.
The steamer did not carry water, instead it used a coal-fired boiler
to draw water from wells, cisterns, and et cetera located around
the city and reported pumped 350 gallons per minute.

craftsmanship will be prominently displayed for all to admire.
Together, we have selected the Model Shipways Mayflower 1620,
5/32 Scale.
On September 16, 1620,
The Mayflower set out from
Plymouth, England. Bound for
Virginia to establish a permanent
colony in North America, she
carried 102 men, women and
children. Many of the passengers
were Separatists fleeing religious
persecution in Europe. After
two months at sea, the ship
dropped anchor at what is now
Provincetown, MA. It was almost 200 miles farther north than
planned, but winter was approaching, so the Pilgrims decided to
stay. Half of the colony did not survive that first winter, but the
rest lived on and prospered.
Historians have tried to identify the Mayflower, but all that
is certain is that she was a wine-ship of 180 tons of the type
commonly used during the early 17th century. In 1957 a British
group sponsored the voyage of a replica from Plymouth, England
to Plymouth, MA. The vessel was given to the United States as
an expression of international goodwill and remains on exhibit at
Plymouth, MA. *

While the Philadelphia Phillies try to
upgrade their lineup, the organization
announced that Citizens Bank Park is
getting a makeover of its own.
The Phillies and Aramark, the stadium's food and
beverage provider, are in the process of turning the area next
to the third base plaza into a new fan destination called Pass
and Stow.
The area will feature an outdoor beer garden and bar, a
Foundry's brick oven pizza, a family friendly sports bar, over
40 televisions and even a 120-seat Shake Shack.
The name Pass and Stow is inspired by John Pass and
John Stow - two Philadelphia metal workers who recast the
original Liberty Bell in 1753.
The Phillies are also bringing back the 19-foot-high
Liberty Bell that was once atop Veterans Stadium.
These new attractions will be ready for fans to enjoy for
the home opener on Thursday, March 28 against the Atlanta
Braves. *
