Club hears about Downtown BG
The director of Downtown BG and the Downtown Foundation is the guest speaker at Thursday’s Bowling Green
Kiwanis Club noon luncheon at Stone Ridge Golf Club.
Tony Vetter, who is completing his first year with Downtown BG, will discuss making our visions for the
community a reality. Vetter has served in various roles in leadership, sales and marketing over the last
28 years. Prior to joining Downtown BG, he was the director of sales and interim president of the Toledo
Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Hear talk on hawks, eagles and falcons
Laura Kearns, ODNR Division of Wildlife, will present a talk on the health and habits of the populations
of hawks, bald eagles and peregrine falcons that call Bowling Green home.
She will speak Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Simpson Building Banquet Room, 1291 Conneaut Ave., and is
presented by the Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Department.
Kearns will provide an in-depth presentation on these animals, and this is an opportunity to ask a state
expert questions. The populations of these birds of prey have rebounded since the mid 1900s and that
makes them easier to view and enjoy as they continue their successful growth in numbers.
This program is for all audiences and registration is not required. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
For questions regarding the program, call the Rotary Nature Center at 419-353-0301.
