Who doesn’t love classic cars?

Tom Geisbuhler certainly does.

The Pemberville resident nurtures his love for his collection of historic automobiles, which he currently houses in the old Ridgley Motors building, which was originally a DeSoto and Plymouth dealership.

May is aptly named after Maia, the Roman goddess of growth.

The earth seems to spring to life this month with flowers, trees, and shrubs in full bloom. The wildlife bring forth their young and the birds have built nests and anxiously await the hatching of their nestlings.

Just above our garden shed door, on a covered shelf, a robin mother is nesting and she soundly scolds us whenever we happen by. There are cardinals nesting in the thick shrubbery near the garage and one day I saw Mr. Cardinal feeding his mate. He poked tidbits into her open beak until she would take no more. Soon, they will both be feeding a new family of fuzzy babes.

Mega Adoption Event
Area animal rescue organizations are joining together to try to find loving permanent homes for 120 dogs and cats during a Mega Adoption Event May 14 and 15 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at the PetSmart at the Spring Meadows Shopping Plaza on Airport Highway in Holland.

Participating rescues include Planned Pethood, Toledo Area Humane Society, Toledo Pet Bull Project, Wood County Humane Society, BREW Midwest, North Coast Grey Hound Connection, Best Friends Forever and Dog Works.

For many of us, even those who are struggling, the thought of being homeless is so foreign and difficult to comprehend.

Cardinal Stritch sophomore Matt Payeff understands and appreciates that, which explains why he recently organized a “Pillow Fight” fundraiser to raise money for the Family House, a homeless shelter located in Toledo.

The event, during which some of the students walloped each other with pillows last Friday, raised just over $500 for the non-profit organization, which provides homeless families in crisis with professional, comprehensive housing and social services in a safe, caring environment.

An estimated 100 members of The Ohio State University Marching and Athletic Bands will perform Saturday, May 28, at Spiegel Grove during the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library & Museums Centennial Celebration.

The band members will march from downtown Fremont to Spiegel Grove at 1 p.m. They will head down Front Street, stop and perform at one of the intersections, and then continue up Birchard Avenue, to Buckland Avenue and into Spiegel Grove. Once on the grounds, they will perform in front of the Hayes Home.
