Food donations sought at parade
This year people watching the Bowling Green Holiday Parade not only can collect lots of candy, but can
give back to the community.
Instead of giving away candy during the parade, the Bowling Green Aktion Club, one of the entrants in the
parade, will be collecting food for the Bowling Green Christian Food Pantry.
Parade viewers are being encouraged to bring a canned or boxed food to the parade and hand it to one of
the Aktion Club volunteers who will be walking the parade.
The Bowling Green Area Aktion Club is an organization of adults who have a developmental disability and
are committed to community service.
This organization, formed as part of the Bowling Green Kiwanis in 2011, is dedicated to giving back to
the community that has given so much to them.
Court Street closed for parade
West Court Street, between Main and Church streets, will be closed Friday night in conjunction with the
community tree lighting ceremony. Also, some on-street parking restrictions will be imposed on North
Main Street near the Wood County Public Library.
Carriage rides will be offered as part of the event. These rides will travel on streets in the downtown,
so motorists are urged to use caution.
The tree lighting is scheduled for 7 p.m. in front of the library.
