The Farmers’ Market is open from 11:00 A.M. until 1:00 P.M. on both days.

Are you someone who loves kids and wants to make a difference in a child’s life? If so, consider becoming a foster parent through Lucas County Children Services (LCCS).  LCCS needs all kinds of individuals to care for all kinds of children, but has a particular need right now for families able to care for groups of brothers and sisters, and for caregivers experienced in working with children with developmental and behavioral challenges. To learn more about becoming a foster parent, call LCCS foster care recruiter Celine Woods at 419-213-3336.
