Winners of the Mercy Health Bicycle Safety Poster Contest recently attended a ceremony where they were given a properly fitted bicycle helmet.

Mercy Health - Children’s Hospital’s Trauma Program, in coordination with the Safe Kids Greater Toledo Coalition recently presented bicycle helmets to 59 area kindergartners who participated in a bicycle safety program and poster contest throughout the school year. Through the program, children learned about safe operation of a bicycle and the importance of wearing a properly fitted bicycle helmet.

In appreciation of more than 13,350 volunteer hours, Mercy Health – St. Charles dedicated the emergency department lobby in honor of Marge and the late Tom Lorenz last week. 

The Oregon natives spent their volunteer time greeting patients, providing directions, assisting patients with paperwork and wheelchairs, and providing comfort to those waiting in the St. Charles emergency department.

Outside of their basic duties of helping patients at St. Charles, Marge and Tom served as the employees’ support system creating a family-like atmosphere and even motivating one individual specifically to become a St. Charles ED nurse.

Whether it is his faith, his family or his football team, Herman Edwards exudes passion in all areas of life. 

That energetic and enthusiastic attitude best defines the way Edwards approaches his role as a studio NFL analyst for ESPN. In 2013, Edwards was named the Team ESPN’s Commentator of the Year. Also in 2013, Edwards joined elite company as a recipient of the Walter Camp Man of the Year Award.

Edwards, a former NFL player and coach, will be the keynote speaker at the Parker’s Purpose fundraising dinner at Ole Zim’s Wagon Shed in Gibsonburg on July 28.
