Volunteers, Donors and the City of Tiffin a Big Thank You!

The 2019 Tiffin Cross Country Carnival was again another huge success.In our tenth year of managing the Carnival, we would like to thank the following people, groups and donors for helping us make this meet a successful community event. (This would have never happened without Norm Grimes!)

We would like to thank the current and past cross country parents, friends and families, Dan Kinn and the workers from the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office for helping put up the tents, thousands of feet of rope, fence and anything else that needed to be done. Many of you took a vacation day from work to come help with set up and we greatly appreciate this gesture. John Black and Bill O’Connor we could not do this without you. The same goes for Judy Mesnard and Phil Cloud for setup and course maintenance.

A special thank you to the Ohio School Plan for their generous donation and sponsorship again for this year’s event.

Thank you to the crew that installs all the posts, as it allows for organized crowd control and parking. Thanks to Shaun Mesnard for your many years of service.

We also appreciated the Columbian Cross Country parents, members of the Men’s 2007 Cross Country State Qualifier team( Nick Boehler, Derek Griffin) Keagan Jacobs, Shaun Griffin, Nick Gase and Columbian’s Freshman Football players that came at the end of the event day, to take everything down and put it all away.

Thanks to Pete Krupp and his staff at Viewpoint Graphics for the great job on designs and printing T-shirts this year.
