MOTHER GOOSE AND FRIENDS VISIT ECC
The Sandusky State Theatre presented Mother Goose and Friends, which PNC Bank sponsored as a part of its Right to Read program.

CITY, TOWNSHIP, SCHOOLS MEET RECREATION NEEDS OF COMMUNITY THROUGH PARTNERSHIP
The City of Olmsted Falls, Olmsted Township and Olmsted Falls School District have partnered to establish a joint recreation entity that will oversee all athletics and other recreation activities in the Olmsted community. The new partnership was launched in July. Its first task is coordinating all youth sports offerings in the community under the Olmsted Recreation umbrella to provide parents registering their children for sports programs a central, online registration system. The online resource will also serve to provide an overview of available programs and registration and fee payment capabilities.
While existing athletic programs – whether privately run or school district run – will maintain their operational structures, Olmsted Recreation will serve to gather all of these outstanding athletic resources under one roof for the purpose of information and registration. Olmsted Recreation initially will enter into a 6-month agreement with the privately maintained Olmsted Community Center to serve as the registration site for both online and in-person registration for all local youth sports programs participating in the new partnership. A nominal built-in registration fee will help establish a funding stream to support the ongoing initiative.
Olmsted Recreation also will seek new partnerships for additional recreation opportunities for residents of all ages. For example, a memorandum of understanding with Brook Park was approved that will provide Olmsted Falls and Olmsted Township residents access to that city’s John A. Polonye Community Center, including its water park, at reduced rates. It hopes to expand recreational offerings beyond just school-age youth to those for all ages from pre-school to senior citizens.
