Mr. David Simmer,
Adjunct Faculty, LCCC Dept. of Life-Long Learning
“A Tour of Lorain County’s Ethnic and Religious Institutions”
Mr. David Simmer, a retired elementary school teacher of the Firelands local school district, was born and raised in Lorain, Ohio. Currently he is an adjunct faculty instructor in Lorain County Community College’s department of Life-Long Learning.
David is president of LCCC’s Friends of Sacred Landmarks, an outreach program that documents the history, art, and architecture of the houses of worship in Lorain county and sponsors programming that celebrate the religious experience of Lorain county residents.
We invite you to come along with David as he travels through Europe – without leaving Lorain County. He will start his journey in Russia and meander west through Romania, Slovenia, Germany, Wales, and the many countries in-between. During this program you will get a glimpse of the county’s many ethnic religious institutions, which served the early immigrants as bridges between the old and new worlds.
