2019 Legacy Bike Ride
We would like to thank all the sponsors who generously donated supporting F.A.C.T. (Financial Assistance for Cancer Treatment) . We know you support many causes in Seneca County, we are very grateful for all you do for our community. We did not list who you are, we know your gift was from the heart and recognition is not your intent, to us, you are the cream of the crop.
Also, a special thank you goes out to the fire departments in Bascom, Sycamore/McCutchenville, and New Riegel and to the Bascom Lions who volunteered as crossing guards committing to make sure all riders were safe. To Hopewell Twp. for supporting a rest stop, to all SS riders who rode the 28 or 4S mile course, to the volunteers who help with rest stops, to Amy from Tranquility Spa donating her time giving rejuvenating massages after the ride, to the A. T. for announcements and coverage and to Bud’s bicycle shop for being our SAG driver, it definitely takes a village to accomplish this bike ride each year and our community certainly stepped up and came together as a village.
Over $5,000 was raised and whether your support was from service or a donation our event would not exist without your generosity. We are forever grateful to live in this community where people come together to help each other. God willing, we will continue to organize the Legacy ride for years to come.
Thank you from The Legacy Committee,
Sandi Hayward, Lou Ann Kuhn, Judy Miller, Dorothy Osterwalder and Linda Tiell
7th Annual Safety Week: Sept. 9-13
Safety Week is for kindergarten thru 3rd grade students at Tiffin City Schools and Calvert Catholic Schools. It has been held at the Lincoln Pre-K building all 7 years. We use 2 classrooms and the gym. This year we taught over 900 students sidewalk/crosswalk safety, bicycle safety, bus safety and fire safety.
We would like to thank:
• The Tiffin Area Safety Council for covering the busing and supply costs for this project. This project would not be possible without your help!
• Tiffin Police Dept’s Citizen Academy Alumni under the leadership of Sgt. Jared Watson – who also help set up, tear down and work shifts. There are at least 10-12 of us who stay on site and donate our time for the entire week.
• The Kiwanis Club of Seneca County for sponsoring and working at this event. As a group they logged over 300 hours of service to this community through pre-prep, set up, working the event and tear down!
• Event sponsor Subway with Janet Molineaux and Dani (Molineaux) McCombs for working there every day and bringing in lunch for the all day volunteers.
• Chief Veletean and the Tiffin Fire Dept, especially clown “Sta – lo” Travis Staley with fellow firemen, Matt Gebauer and Lt. Matt Gray. These men spend the week with us.
• The TCS Transportation Department and their bus drivers who got everyone back and forth safely every day.
¯TCS and building Principal Michelle Tuite for embracing this program and giving us the go ahead to hold it at Lincoln again this year. Also, Pat Smith from the Central Office, for organizing the classroom schedules.
• The staff at Lincoln, who were very accommodating to us as we tried not to disrupt their routine. Head custodian Catie Yambert was also very helpful and took care of us while doing everything else she needed to do!
• Heidelberg University Athletes were fantastic! Their ladies volleyball team came in Sunday afternoon to help unload all equipment, prep the area and set up Safety City. On Friday members of their football team came in to help tear down everything, load up and unload all equipment back in to storage for next year.
• The manpower supplied by parents and grandparents from the Tiffin City Schools on M-T-TH-F and Calvert parents on Wednesday. We had over 100 sign up and volunteer!
This project would not be possible and as well run as it is without the commitment from every one mentioned above and many more not mentioned by name.
