Look at the calendar in disbelief.
It really is the end of August.
Perrysburg students head back to school Wednesday. Really, it’s true.
Make the most of those last dwindling days of summer vacation by heading out in the community and doing something fun.
Here are some ideas on happenings in Perrysburg.
On Saturday, a festival of sorts is taking place at the Commodore Building, 140 E. Indiana Ave, from 8 a.m. to noon.
Going the Extra Mile for Perrysburg Students is a carnival-style party, with face painting, laser tag, inflatable games, a silent auction and a race/walk.
Auction items include a hot tub, an Oriental rug, a YMCA membership, a year’s worth of Hallmark cards, and gift cards to local businesses.
The race starts at 9:30 a.m. at Elm and Fifth streets. Registration is from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
The fund-raiser is for two school groups, Perrysburg Elementary Parents’ Association and Toth Parents’ Club, which reported a combined $91,000 missing in its funds earlier this year. The groups’ volunteer treasurer, Kiki Lorann, of Perrysburg, was charged with four felony theft counts in Wood County Common Pleas Court.
Fort Meigs is presenting Life in Early Ohio, a two-day event filled with hands-on demonstrations and presentations. The fort is located at 29100 W. River Rd. in Perrysburg and is open 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. Want some BOOM? Highlights include a musket demonstration at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. both days as well as a cannon demonstration at noon Saturday; 12:30 p.m. Sunday, and 4 p.m. both days.
More interested in art demonstrations or hearing history come to life? The program also includes lessons on leatherworking, blacksmithing and a presentation on the fort’s history in the War of 1812. To see the itinerary, check out http://www.fortmeigs.org/earlyohio/.
Looking for adult-friendly things to do? Also happening Saturday, head across the river to Maumee Indoor Theatre, 601 Conant St. At 2 p.m., the YWCA’s HOPE Center is sponsoring a special screening of the award-winning documentary, The Invisible War, a film about rape in the United States military. Suggested donation is $5.
