We had another great Halloween. Nice turnout on a beautiful evening.
We thank the Ohio city community Church of God for bringing their food truck and giving the food away for free.
We want to thank the Ohio City Fire Department for judging the costumes this year. A lot of time and energy went into the creation of some of them.
I would like to thank the members of the Van Wert County Regional Planning Commission for judging our light pole decorating contest.
The winners of the contest were: 1st Ryan & Deena Beacher, 2nd Leslie Marbaugh & Ezra Friesner, 3rd was a tie with Tim & Marcia Moody and Ann & Rachel King. We thank each for participating. The decorations will need to be taken down by November 14th.
