Every vote counts
To the editor: Thank you Lucas County and thank you to everyone that supported Imagination Station throughout this levy renewal campaign. After the provisional ballots were counted, Issue 26 has passed, securing five more years of outstanding STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) educational opportunities for the children of Lucas County. This proves that every vote counts.

To thank you for your support, we will continue to offer Lucas County residents the following special benefits:

• Free admission every Saturday for residents 12 and under;

• Discounts on admission every day;

• Discounts on membership;

• Discounts on school group rates.

Imagination Station, in partnership with school districts, universities and local businesses, is committed to helping prepare future generations to enter STEM career fields. Thirty of the fastest-growing jobs in the United States require a background in STEM. At Imagination Station, our unique blend of hands-on exhibits and experiences, aligned to academic content standards in Ohio and Michigan, plant seeds that excite, engage and inspire our future leaders to pursue STEM careers.

Your support of Issue 26 has enabled us to plan further into the future including a wide range of traveling exhibitions fit for the whole family. You can look forward to seeing “Grossology: The Impolite Science of the Human Body,” “Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition,” “Guitar: The Instrument that Rocked the World,” “Mythbusters: The Explosive Exhibition” and “Design Zone,” alongside an array of exciting special events, guests and experiences to come.

On behalf of the Imagination Station board of directors, team and the children of Lucas County, we thank you.

Grateful
To the editor: Thanksgiving 2012 will remain a memorable day, beginning with worship and thanking God for the freedom to do this. In mid-morning, we dropped in on neighbors, wishing them a blessed Thanksgiving and enjoying a brief visit. Being alone for the day, we decided to go to Woodmore High School for dinner.

A happy Thanksgiving was given us by every adult, high school student and child volunteering for the event. Young children perfectly tended to our every need and we were there two hours sharing, conversing and laughing with friends and new acquaintances.

Our Thanksgiving was truly filled with deep gratitude for the kindness shown us by everyone and to those who sponsored the dinner. Life can’t be any better than living in a small village. We traveled less than a quarter-mile from our home for a Thanksgiving we will treasure.
