Moment with the Mayor for November 2, 2019

Once again, it’s that time of year when the Wadsworth community truly shines. As the holiday season begins, the Wadsworth Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present the 9th Annual Come Home for the Holidays Shop Local program. With the support and sponsorship of the Wadsworth Post Newspaper, shoppers are once again asked to save their receipts from purchases made in the 44281 Wadsworth zip code for the entire month of November. Then, during the first week of December, (December 2-6), the Wadsworth Public Library will host a receipt exchange - one raffle ticket for one receipt, with a $5.00 minimum spent per receipt. Library exchange hours that week will be: Monday-Thursday, 10:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.; Friday, 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Finally, at a new location this year, the prizes will be displayed at Summa Health Center, Founder’s Hall Cafeteria, on Saturday, December 7, so that the community may place their raffle tickets for those items they would like to win.  The drawing will be held from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. that morning at Founder’s Hall. A free family Breakfast with Santa from 8:00 – 10:00 will also be available before the prize drawing. Everyone in attendance at the prize drawing will receive a special raffle ticket to win one of five $50 cash prizes donated by Advanced Insurance Designs, Inc. Those who are unable to attend the prize drawing may take their tickets to the library for gift card prizes that will be mailed later to the winners.   Come Home for the Holidays is truly a heart-warming community event, bringing together many people and businesses - the Wadsworth Post, the Wadsworth Area Chamber of Commerce, Wadsworth Public Library, Summa Health, the City of Wadsworth, Advanced Insurance Designs, Inc. and many area businesses, gracious volunteers, and an engaged community to make it all happen. So, save those receipts and then come out to enjoy a wonderful holiday event, created especially for the entire Wadsworth community.

Until next week…….

Each month, a different business will be featured. Cash mobs are a great way to support local business and show community spirit.
