There are a lot of fun and interesting things to do right here in Allen County that you may not know about.
Not planning to travel for your vacation this year? There's plenty to do right here in Allen County. Tina Koester from Visit Greater Lima played a fun game with club members called Never Have I Ever. She showed us 20 local attractions ranging from axe throwing to a swinging bridge, to gourmet cupcakes. We got points for places we had visited and activities we had done and the prize for the person gathering most points was an Amazon Echo . Congratulations to our guest, Ahmad Houston, who won with an amazing 22 points!
Tina told us that Visit Greater Lima's mission is to encourage visitors to come to Allen County and inject dollars into our community, but with people not wanting to travel because of Covid, "We've decided since we are limited from reaching people outside the county to come in, we would encourage our local residents to experience what we promote to visitors. Our hope is to be able to create a positive perception within our own communities so they can help promote a positive image to their friends and their family who may eventually visit Lima/Allen County." You can find all the details about local attractions and events on the Visit Greater Lima website.
Also at Monday's meeting, we welcomed Tommie Harner as our newest member. Tommie is the new CEO at the West Ohio Food Bank. She is replacing Linda Hamilton who is retiring at the end of this month. Please make her welcome!
