All who gave are heroes
Hats off to Tiffin-Seneca United Way campaign chairs Kelly Hohman and Eric Shook and their teammates who spearheaded the fundraising effort that raised more than $480,000. The money will aid people throughout the community through assistance given to 13 primary agencies and nine associate agencies.
Thanks, also, to everyone who has donated to the annual campaign or is giving to the United Way through payroll deductions. The campaign had a superhero theme this year, and all who gave are, in a real way, coming to the rescue of others in the community.
Thanks for the program - again
A tip of the cap to Mark Steinmetz, a member of the Seneca County Historical Society, and the Seneca County Museum not only for planning and hosting a presentation last month about the 1913 flood, but also for offering a repeat of the program at 1:30 p.m. Sunday in the museum's Fort Ball Room. The museum is to open at 1 p.m. Those who attend also can explore an exhibit of photographs and other flood memorabilia from the museum's collection.
The presentation is to conclude in time for the audience to attend a community memorial service for the victims of the century-old disaster at 3:30 p.m. Sunday in the church at 230 S. Washington St.
Considering the weather the past few days, the events serve as a timely reminder of the power of nature.
