We just received a phone call from Beth Clark with ODOT. She said that Carey Schools and the Village of Carey was awarded $306,221 in grant funding for the Safe Routes to Schools application. The improvements that will be made will include all of the projects we asked for, including the bike/sidewalks through the park from Patterson, lighting along the new walkways, connecting the two sections of Snyder Park with a bike/sidewalk, lighting along the Blue Devil parkway through the park, improvements to the intersection of South St. and Glenn Ave, and improvements to the signage and crosswalks along four intersections along Vance St. In short, everything we asked for, we received!
Students are enjoying the Summer Fun Camps this year.
So far we have had Days of Code, EZ Science, and Yoga for Learning.
We still have spots for our sewing class and hope to see all of you soon at Library Fun Day.
In Ohio, mosquitoes are most active from May through October. Most are not major carriers of diseases. In fact, only a few of the 59 species of mosquitoes in Ohio can transmit disease. But the diseases these mosquitoes can carry are serious, including West Nile virus and several strains of encephalitis.
The most effective way to prevent mosquito-borne diseases is to prevent mosquito bites. The Ohio Department of Health is offering educational materials to help Ohioans “fight the bite.” Download a children’s coloring book, youth poster on tick and mosquito bites, and other literature and educational materials
