Annual Meeting: November 13 in Paulding

Paulding County Park District board member Brad Dysinger will be the featured speaker at this year’s Annual Meeting of the Maumee Valley Heritage Corridor on Sunday, November 13, 12:30- 2:30 pm, at the Paulding Eagle’s Lodge, 206 W. Perry Street, in Paulding, Ohio. The public is invited and the cost is $10 for Heritage Corridor members and $15 for non-members. A hot buffet luncheon is included, which will be served at 12:30 pm. Reservations are required by November 7 and can be made by calling 419-278-0773 or by emailing the organization at maumeevalleyheritagecorridor@hotmail.com.
 
Dysinger will discuss the recent strides the Park District has made towards the advancement of public parks, recreation and conservation in Paulding County, including their focus on the open spaces along the Maumee and Auglaize Rivers and their work with various public and non-profit partners to enhance and expand the County Park system. He will also discuss the goals of the District, the hurdles they have faced since their reorganization in 2015, the value of the relationships they’ve built since then, and their part in the Maumee Valley Scenic Byway. The Heritage Corridor serves as the manager of the Byway, one of the 26 recognized by the Ohio Department of Transportation.
 
Preceding the presentation, the Heritage Corridor will hold its Annual Business Meeting, including a review of the past year, plans for the coming year, and the nomination and election of officers and board members for 2017.
