LIMA — Allen County and Lima elected and appointed officials will hold their 112th dialogue on Wednesday, continuing into its second decade of this worthwhile enterprise. The dialogues began more than 10 years ago, April 2003.
The event is from noon-1 p.m. at Allen Economic Development Group/Lima-Allen County Chamber of Commerce, 144 South Main St., Suite 100.
Activate Allen County Director Cheri Mitchell will share brief keynote remarks introducing the dialogue topic, “How can we help make the healthy choice the easy choice?”
As always, county, township, village and city officials are invited to chat and share a light meal. We request a $5 donation to cover the cost of lunch. Dialogues are an informal opportunity to get to know each other, exchange ideas and build relationships. More than 180 officials have participated since April 2003. Total attendance is 1,476.
Members of the Planning Committee are David Adams, Syl Essick, Roy Hollenbacher (Bath Township Trustee), Millie Hughes (Lima Area League of Women Voters), Mitch Kingsley (Bluffton Village Council), Frank Lamar, Jed Metzger (Lima/Allen County Chamber of Commerce) and Greg Sneary (County Commissioners).
