With six tremendous shows per season (two musicals, two comedies, two dramas), LTOB is a must see in Grove City’s Historic Town Center.  For an even more personal experience, LTOB and GCVCB have partnered to bring tours and improv classes to groups looking for a more specialized experience.  Maybe you will even catch a glimpse of LTOB’s ghost!

Originally established to celebrate the birth of President George Washington, President’s Day has come to mean much more in an attempt to honor all United States Presidents.  Despite the fantastic “President’s Day Sales” at various retail shops, the holiday also means a day of school and work for many Americans.

Why not take this opportunity to remember some of the Presidents with ties to Ohio?  Eight of our former Presidents were born here in Ohio: William Henry Harrison, Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James A. Garfield, Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, William Howard Taft, and Warren G. Harding.  There is even a suggested itinerary that allows you to see all of the landmarks Ohio has established to commemorate these eight men – One State, Eight Presidents trip idea.

Central Ohio’s contributions include a statues and the birthplace of Rutherford B. Hayes.   The Ohio Statehouse is a must see for Presidential History buffs with several statues and memorials on the grounds as well as a plethora of information inside.

Whatever you decide to do, whatever political party you identify with, take a moment to pause and appreciate the former Presidents on this President’s Day because they all did their parts to serve our country.

The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month. ~ Henry Van Dyke

If you have survived the polar vortex (or rather, polar vortices) then you are likely as ready for Spring as we are!  The signs are all here today, birds chirping, sun shining, snow and ice melting.  So does it mean that Spring has finally sprung?  Let’s hope so!

There are so many fantastic things to do in Spring as we shake off Winter’s remnants.  There is a certain scent to the air that we can only notice during Spring so why not stroll through the Gardens at Gantz and witness the emergence of birds and bees and flowers and trees?  It’s time to get active again, to get out and move around so grab a paddle and head out to Trapper John’s for a canoe trip.  Pull your bikes out of the garage, dust them off and fill your tires before heading out on one of Grove City’s bike trails!  Whatever you do to celebrate the change of season, get out and enjoy the sun on your face for as long as you can!
