Health center closed today
The Wood County Health District and health center are closed today due to the weather. Any patients or clients who had appointments will be contacted to reschedule when the offices open.

Weather causes traffic crashes
Several traffic incidents were reported this morning on area roadways.

A crash between a snow plow and a van was reported in the 15000 block of Mitchell Road. An initial report indicated minor injuries.
Additionally, there was the report of a jackknifed semi tractor-trailer on I-75 southbound near the U.S. 6. interchange. No injuries were reported, though there was concern over a possible fuel leak.

Toy giveaway Wednesday

PERRYSBURG - The Play it Forward Used Toy Giveaway, a distribution of toys to local organizations and charities, will be held Wednesday from 3 to 5 p.m. at Cousino Harris Disaster Kleen Up, 2690 Eckel Road.
The fifth annual toy drive collected two 30-foot box trucks full of gently used toys in early February. After weeks of cleaning and organizing, the toys are ready to be given to local children in need.
Over the years the toys have been distributed in a variety of ways, including giveaway events at the Wayman Palmer YMCA, Toledo's Erie Street Market and by dropping off directly to shelters. This year area organizations such as Family House, Friendly Center and Lucas County Children Services are being invited to come and "shop" the toys at Cousino-Harris during the two-hour period on Wednesday.
Toys are sorted by age group and category, including books, puzzles, games, educational and stuffed animals. The intention is for each organization to leave with a collection of toys that can either be used in their facility or distributed to the families.
Cousino Harris is located at Levis Commons.

There isn't much the good women of Wood County weren't willing to do 60 years ago to help ensure the success of the Wood County Hospital, a showcase facility that had just opened its doors three years earlier, in 1951.
The Wood County Hospital Guild formally got its start on March 27, 1954 at a opening membership tea attended by over 600 women sporting hats, brooches and, of course, white gloves.
Norma Barr and Mary Myers Fuelber, the guild's two surviving founders, vividly recall the event.
"That first meeting was a huge success. The women of Wood County really responded, with an effort that is still flourishing today," praised Fuelber, 95.
The hospital was founded with the direction of a steering committee made up of the local Medical Auxiliary of doctors' wives, and the Executive Board of the Bowling Green Women's Club.
"At that time I was president of the Women's Club," Fuelber said, so she was at ground zero of efforts to create a hospital guild.
The original modest group divided the county into sections and fanned out "to recruit 100 women who were all the key women in their local communities."

PEMBERVILLE - The Feb. 26 meeting of the Mid-Morning Belles Homemakers Club was held in the community room of the Union Bank in Pemberville.  
Breakfast refreshments were served by Gaylene Smith and Eloise Reitzel.  Six members were able to attend and Mickey Gerwin opened the meeting with a reading entitled "A Lot of Things Are Better" by Slim Acres.  
Roll call was answered to "What is your favorite art activity?" Carolyn Borcherding presented an introduction to Zentangle Art, which is an art form that anyone can enjoy, even though they may not think they have such a talent.  The members discovered that it is a fun way to create intricate art forms by drawing structured designs with pencil or pen and they were able to complete a greeting card to take home.   
An Easter egg tree was then decorated with eggs that had previously been made under Gerwin's direction and which will be donated to the Pemberville Library.
The next meeting will be held at the library community room on March 26.
