Tank’s Meats Inc., a good old-fashioned meat market offers customers full service with lots of history behind it. The Elmore business was started 102 years ago in 1907 by F.J. Tank. When the business started, it simply sold beef, pork, luncheon meats and cheeses.

The owners of Tank’s Meats Inc. have included F.J Tank, Walter and Elfreda Tank and Alois and Marcia Amstutz. Currently, Tank’s Meats Inc. is operated by Eric and Kurt Amstutz.

Before Alois came to the United States, he went to school in Switzerland from 1954-1957, where he learned about sausage-making. After he finished his apprenticeship, Al saw an ad in the newspaper for a sausage-maker, and he subsequently came to the United States.

Over the week leading up to and including the fourth of July the little church on Main Street hosted its first ever vacation bible school and Packed the end of the week with its Second Annual Freedom Celebration. Free hamburgers, Popcorn, Snow Cones, Cotton Candy, Music, Door Prize Drawings, and Dunk Booth greeted willing participants on their way to and from the Fourth Fireworks display in downtown.

Pastor Dan was quoted saying that the love of Christ compels us to do these things. An estimated six hundred people were served and hundreds of volunteer hours were utilized. All of the events of New Heights are free and open to the public. The little church does no fund-raising and refuses donations at the events. The concept is unique: “Christ’s love is free and so is this event.”

New Heights Fellowship is located at 613 Main Street in East Toledo. For further information contact the church at 419-469-8808.
