Happy Holidays!
The end of the year is almost upon us, and 2018 has been a terrific year for Sylvania. Sylvania has been a great place to live, work and raise a family all year long including the current holiday season! Downtown Sylvania has been more active, lit up and festive than ever throughout the year. Miracle on Main Street was held Dec. 7 and 8 and included lighting a new community holiday tree in the Historic Village and the arrival of Santa Claus in a Christmas parade. There was music, food, art and shopping all weekend, and even a 5K race through the downtown on Sunday, Dec. 2. There is a great synergy of effort, creativity and cooperation occurring in downtown Sylvania and throughout the Sylvania Community. My special thanks to the Sylvania Area Chamber of Commerce, the Sylvania Arts Commission, Red Bird, the Downtown Sylvania Association, and Sylvania Historic Commission for all of their great work throughout the year. But more than that, great things are happening all around Sylvania. Sylvania has a wonderful tradition of volunteerism that makes our community better and keeps us growing. Whether in the schools, the churches, recreation, community organizations, the hospital and many more, Sylvania is one of the best places to live in northwest Ohio because of the spirit of volunteering and the quality of life. And just in case you still have some last minute holiday shopping to do, remember Sylvania is a great place to get it done! Sylvania shopping is better than ever with many delightful stores and restaurants all around Sylvania including downtown, Southbriar Shopping Center, Wickford Plaza, Saxon Square, Timberstone Plaza, the Kroger Plaza, the Promenade Shops, Country Squire, the Sylvania Marketplace and more. Sylvania stores offer the products, the convenience and the price you are looking for. Shopping at Sylvania stores also keeps local dollars in our community, employs our friends, neighbors and children, and supports our local charities, schools and fundraisers. So, to everyone in the Sylvania Community – Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! And thank you for all you do!
