Impressed by art walk

I would like to express my thanks to all who were involved in the Art Walk April 4. Although the weather was not ideal, many people attended. The shuttle provided by Reineke Dealership for transportation made it convenient to visit all the interesting locations.

All in all, it was a very enjoyable evening. I am looking forward to attending the next one.

CARSA forum informed on opiates problem

Recently, Community Action for Reducing Substance Abuse provided a “Let’s Talk” town hall-style forum on the opiate issue in Ohio and locally. As the coordinator representing CARSA members, I would like to thank the following people who came together to make our event possible.

First, I would like to thank Matthew Donahue, section chief with the attorney general’s office, for his informative presentation, as well as Seneca County Prosecutor Derek DeVine. They provided insight into how heroin, prescription drugs and syntheics are leading our current drug trends.

I would like to extend our thanks to the staff at North Central Ohio Educational Service Center for use of its facility and the friendly and professional staff. Kathy Mohr, Stephanie Brown and Kelly Hohman went above and beyond to help make this a great event.

I would like to thank our CARSA members and those who helped in any way that night.

I also would like to express gratitude to those who came out that evening because you all play an important role in our efforts to deter substance use in our community.

Our coalition looks forward to many future opportunities to bring people together to focus on how we move toward a safer, drug-free community.

Charla Vanosdol,

CARSA chairwoman

Benefit succeeded, and that’s F.A.C.T.

The F.A.C.T. board and their clients would like to thank Barb Vogel and her family for another successful Harvest of Hope benefit in 2013. Harvest of Hope presented F.A.C.T. with a gift of $10,000 from this event.

We also would like to express appreciation to all who attended and contributed to the Harvest of Hope and those who donated their time and their hard work. Our mission to serve our community members suffering with cancer could not continue without the thoughtfulness of fundraisers like this.

Please support the Harvest of Hope in November.

Karen O’Connor,

F.A.C.T. board

And we thank you for your support in this endeavor.

To Sandie Myers, book sale chairwoman, Jim Stultz, Friends’ treasurer, the Friends volunteers and the staff at the library, thank you for all of the time and effort it took to put this book sale together. We couldn’t have done it without you

To our cleanup crew volunteers from Morrison House, Heidelberg University and Tiffin University, thank you for all of your hard work dragging, lifting and putting away all of the leftover books.
