Seasonably busy

October 1, 2013 - Rob Weaver
Summertime ... and the living is easy.

Well, maybe in an opera. Or maybe for schoolkids and teachers. But in this newsroom, summers tend to be a hectic period.

It begins with work on the annual OurTown edition, which publishes in August. The list of stories is developed and assignments are handed out in the spring. After a two-week lull following Memorial Day, work progresses in earnest on those articles.

Then, summer festival season begins. At the same time, advance work starts on coverage for the Seneca County Fair. Thus, July is an especially busy month.

After the fair winds down, production commences on the OurTown edition. Stories are edited, photos gathered, pages are designed and proofed. Meanwhile, sports staffers begin working on the fall sports edition. High school sports already are under way when that section is delivered, and then it's Cross Country Carnival time.

Late summer brings not only one of the largest cross country meets in the nation, but the Jazzin' Tiffin performances and then the Tiffin-Seneca Heritage Festival.


But there's still plenty to do this fall. Here are some of the activities mentioned during the Seneca County Community Council meeting today:

-- A Costume Carnival is set for Saturday at Tiffin-Seneca Public Library.

-- The annual St. Francis Craft Show is scheduled for Oct. 11-12 in the gymnasium behind St. Francis Home.

-- Hoot in the Park is planned for Oct. 17 at Opportunity Park, 780 E. CR 20.

-- United Way Day of Caring is to be Oct. 19; registration (and breakfast) begins at 8 a.m. at Opportunity Center.

-- Breakfast also is part of an annual fundraiser at Elmwood at The Shawhan 7:30-10:30 a.m. Oct. 22.

-- The next day, Oct. 23, St. Francis Home is to host Books Are Fun book fair.

-- A fall festival is to be offered Oct. 25 at Tiffin Community YMCA.

-- Seneca County Opportunity Center's Fall Craft Show is set for Oct. 26.
