Seniors hear from Havenar

SIDNEY — Kyle Havenar, of the Community Development Department of the city of Sidney, addressed members of the Senior Center of Sidney and Shelby County during their June luncheon meeting at the center.

He talked about the city’s instituting a new program, which will require owners of vacant buildings and properties to register their properties with the city. This will ensure that the city is aware of the location of high risk buildings. The city will then have contact information of the responsible parties, insuring that the properties will not be allowed to deteriorate.

Amy Carles, senior outreach and education specialist with the Office of the Ohio Consumers Council, told the members how to save energy and lower their energy bills.

Kathy Pleiman, director of the Community Blood Center, presented Georgina Dressman and her crew with the Platinum Award for 2017. The center hosts a blood drive every two months and has always exceeded its donation goals.

The Milestone Raffle winner was Larry McLaughlin. The attendance prize went to Steve Schroeder.
