History

The Christ Child Society Chapter of Western Reserve in Ohio was founded in 1983 and chartered and incorporated in 1986.  In 1978 the Lake County/Geauga Christ Child Chapter was formed.  The Chapter covered quite a large geographic area.  Because of the strong interest in the work being done by the Christ Child Society in the combined Chapters, eight members asked if the program should not be extended into their Lake County area as a separate Chapter.  In 1983, an organizational meeting was held and the overwhelming response of those attending led to the founding of the Western Reserve Chapter, along the shores of Lake Erie.
