|Landeck welcomes Ohio cyclists|

The Landeck Community Committee has been busy with many activities to help make Landeck a great place to live.
Several people welcomed Across Ohio Bike Support Adventure Group at the tavern before it opened for business by furnishing drinks and snacks on the day this group of about 80 riders peddled from Celina to Paulding. Members, who were on a several-day bicycle ride, were very appreciative of having a place to take a break. One lady bicyclist told one member who was holding a basket of apples that she looked like the Welcome Wagon.
The group received donations from the Jim Illig family and the Gertie Ernst family. Jim had been a valuable member of the group for several years. Illig suggested a few years ago that the group honor Landeck’s senior citizens. He happily attended this year’s party, along with over 80 others who had ties to Landeck. Attendees came from Fort Jennings, Delphos, Fort Wayne, Wapakoneta, Spencerville, Elida, Venedocia, Chicago and Landeck. Gertie Hempling was the oldest person in attendance. Omer and Elmer Potast, who are over 90, were the oldest twins in attendance.
Landeck Community Garage Sales will be held Aug. 15-17. Anyone wishing to be on the map should call Joan Mason (419)236-2228 before Monday. Maps will be available at the Delphos Chamber of Commerce and at the rear of the church.
Volunteers pulled weeds in the landscaping surrounding the flag pole, replaced the plastic under the rubber mulch which protects users of the play equipment on the community playground and put up colorful summer banners along the streets. Paying off the playground equipment is a continuing project of the group. Someone has given the group an interest-free loan.
The next meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 9. Any interested person is welcome to attend the meeting at the tavern. If anyone is interested in learning more about the group, call Catherine Heitz 419 692 9753.
