Members of the Youth Fellowship Group at Lindsey Trinity United Methodist Church plan to sleep in Lindsey Park Nov. 2 as part of the Appalachian Service Project Box Village.

The group will meet at the park at 7 p.m.

Members are doing odd jobs to raise funds to purchase their housing of boxes, sleeping bags and pillows, food, and related necessities.

Funds raised will also be used to pay for an ASP mission trip next June.

Genoa officials are on their way to restructuring a utility deposit plan to help businesses opening in the village.

Village council had its second reading on the revision of the utility deposit ordinance, according to Village Administrator Kevin Gladden. The third reading is scheduled for Nov. 5.

Re-opening of the Ravine Park pool is a priority for 90 percent of East Toledo’s Garfield neighborhood residents.

Another 83 percent said there is a need for additional youth activities and 57 percent said that existing parks are inadequate. In addition, 44 percent said they would be willing to step up and volunteer for youth programs.

Thanks to a generous donation from an anonymous World War II donor, Honor Flight of Northwest Ohio held a special flight Tuesday, Oct. 23 for veterans of the Vietnam War.

Honor Flight of Northwest Ohio is a non-profit organization formed in 2007 to send the veterans of Northwest Ohio to Washington, DC to see the memorials built to honor their service. To date, 1240 veterans have flown on 27 flights to see their memorials.
