Mob going to animal shelter

Seneca Regional Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Services has adopted its monthly Cash Mob for February.

Instead of going to a locally-owned business to make a purchase, chamber members are asking the public to benefit the Seneca County Humane Society with the purchase of pet food, cleaning materials, office supplies, postage stamps, pet bedding, cat litter, cash and gift cards for gas and other products to benefit the shelter.

These items can be dropped off noon-5:30-p.m. Wednesday at the shelter, 2811 S. SR 100. For more information, call the Humane Society at (419) 447-5704.

TAG meeting moved

The usual Monday night meeting of the Tiffin Art Guild has been postponed to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the gallery.

TAG members are encouraged to attend. Entries for the photo contest are to be turned in by 4 p.m. Saturday for judging, and input is needed concerning other events for coming months.

Youth can dance after game

First Lutheran Church is to host another After the Game Dance in the church fellowship hall Friday.

Students may enter at the preschool door entrance at the northwest corner of the building. Soft drinks, water and pizza may be purchased for 50 cents each.
