Message from the President

Welcome!

Lima/Allen County is a vibrant community growing in business, and enhancing quality of life for residents. There are many exciting things happening in Allen County - Capital investments are taking place at an unprecedented level; new and existing businesses are building state-of-the-art, highly technological facilities advancing the Lima/Allen County community. Educational opportunities are superior in our community and Lima/ Allen County is a regional hub for healthcare and retail. The arts offered in the community are amazing, one can take pleasure in enjoying the symphony, theater, Broadway shows, nationally known entertainers, galleries, museums and more; giving us big city entertainment with small town personality. One of our community’s milestones this year was to establish a community brand, designed to help improve our reputation, competitive edge among local, national and global markets, and to establish a foothold on who we are as a community. Local community leaders of decided we needed to make every effort to understand what our brand was for our community and what makes us unique or different than other communities. These community leaders formed a Community Branding Committee – which I was selected to chair - under the Lima Area Chamber Foundation to begin to understand our community’s brand. The committee entered into a contract with North Star Destination Strategies to conduct research on behalf of Lima/Allen County, with community leaders and residents providing the feedback necessary to identify the brand for our community. Thus “Real American Strength” came into fruition. The Chamber and its membership is representative of our brand. We have a very strong workforce, full of industrious individuals who embrace Midwestern values and a strong work ethic. Our community is a place where capacity energizes diverse thinkers and doers, fueling advancement, generating momentum, and cultivating strength for our community. We are happy to provide you with the 2011 Lima/Allen County Membership Directory & Buyers’ Guide, review the community information to see just how we are living the Real American Strength brand and how our businesses are enhancing our economic viability as a major contributor to local, state, national and international markets.

Chamber - Leading Businesses. Leading Communities.™ ABOUT THE CHAMBER

Chamber – Leading Businesses. Leading Communities.™ Founded in 1887, the Lima/Allen County Chamber of Commerce is the community’s leading advocate and champion for business. Its primary objective is to create a climate of growth and success in our community. The Lima/Allen County Chamber of Commerce provides leadership and businessbuilding initiatives focusing on the critical priorities of the community. Leveraging the support, talent, and resources of our members, we are one of the leading organizations helping to improve the economic vitality and quality of life for the region. Working with several businesses, city, county and township government organizations and community representatives, the Chamber has assisted in securing support and funding from the community to move the Allen County Community Branding initiative forward. The steering committed developed to drive this mission forward has approved and are now implementing suggested steps to unify the Lima/Allen County community under the “Real American Strength” theme. This initiative has been developed to market Allen County toward businesses, residents and visitors, in hopes of bringing commerce and culture together to create prosperity, enhance perception and reputation – making Allen County a destination community. As an advocate for businesses and our communities, we are living and breathing “Real American Strength” in our everyday programs, efforts, and initiatives. We

encourage our local businesses and community members to evaluate how they demonstrate “Real American Strength” in their everyday activities. Community and economic development are essential for a growing community. The Chamber has taken under its umbrella, the Common Threads “Allen 2020” project. Through this effort, 10 task force teams organized and developed a community vision focusing on the planned growth of the Lima/Allen County community. The Chamber has continually focused our efforts on identifying and advancing opportunities to support economic development of small business. The Chamber, in partnership with Diversified Management and the Small Business Development Center formed the Walter C. Potts Entrepreneurial Center. The purpose of the Center is to provide economic stability and to enhance the community’s quality of life by encouraging small and minority business to stay, invest and participate in the Lima/Allen County community. Working together through the Lima Area Chamber Foundation, the Chamber, Allen Economic Development Group, Lima/Allen County Convention & Visitors Bureau, Downtown Lima, Inc., Allen Lima Leadership, Walter C. Potts Entrepreneurial Center and the Veterans Memorial Civic and Convention Center were able to rehabilitate a historic building in downtown Lima, to form the Center for Business Services. The selection and renovation of the historic Schnorf-Wagner Building was a $2.4 million investment in the redevelopment of the downtown business district. The Center for Business Services created a unique ballroom to accent the Veterans Memorial Civic and Convention Center as well as become a catalyst for economic development.

Chamber - Leading Businesses. Leading Communities.™ ABOUT THE CHAMBER

The Chamber continues to support the efforts of Downtown Lima, Inc and the City of Lima’s main corridor projects. This endeavor will offer an overlay district throughout the City of Lima’s main thoroughfares enhancing future development, overall functionality and esthetic of the entrances into the city. Enhancing education is a priority of the Lima/Allen County community. Several organizations have joined efforts with the Chamber to work with city and county schools to increase the number of students and adults striving to achieve a post secondary education. The Chamber and United Way of Greater Lima have partnered to identify social and educational gap areas – addressing those outside influences preventing students from obtaining a post secondary education. It is our goal to overcome those hindrances and

6

improve the quality of the workforce in Allen County and surrounding region. Building relationships and retaining talent among the young professionals within the greater Lima area continues to be an optimist goal of the Chamber. Today, the Lima Young Professionals organization is making a difference and getting involved in several events, service and civic organizations, as well as providing outlets in which to impact the sustainability of the Allen County community. The Lima YP has taken an environmental stand, generating awareness for “green” initiatives throughout the Lima/Allen County region. Among the many programs

www.LimaChamber.com

the YP hosts, the organization has developed an annual Green Tie Affair which highlights those businesses active in reducing their carbon footprint within the community. This event is unique to the area and is held in conjunction with Earth Day-week. The Lima YP has also stepped up and is taking a stand on behalf of the community by forming the “I Love Lima” movement. The I Love Lima movement was formed to help combat negativity and help promote our community… not only to visitors but also to our own residents. The Lima YP has been nominated for The Good Neighbor Award for their work with the I Love Lima movement. We are proud that the Chamber, through our many partnerships, has become one of the leading organizations helping to improve the economic vitality and quality of life for everyone in the Lima/Allen County Area.

County Commissioners' Welcome Welcome to Allen County, Ohio! This is the place we call home, where we live, work, play, and raise our families. Allen County is a very diverse community including multiple shopping malls, diverse eating establishments, many beautiful neighborhoods, and lots of expansive farm lands. We are also an area prime for economic development due to our location geographically, powerful workforce, and great transportation systems, all providing easy and effective access to economic success. Many communities have the infrastructure of roads, sewers, water, and the like, but that which makes us distinct is our active people, and people really do make a difference. We are a community in which people say “hello” as they pass one another, a community that reaches out to one another in good times, and in times of need. There is a general sense of collective caring for our futures.  We have all chosen to make this our home, and to make it a better place for ourselves as well as for all others who visit, shop, and view our community.  Allen County has a rich history in so many ways, it is truly a marvel! Our early history began with the discovery of oil in the 1800’s, and although we had a significant economic slow down in the 1980’s, we have continued on with new development and entrepreneurship through to the 21st century. We have many famous people who call Allen County their home and it’s interesting to note that we have the only nationally accredited county museum in the state of Ohio.

W. Dan Reiff

County Commissioner Commission President

Allen County has a strong history of manufacturing within its boundaries. Our county is home to such companies as P&G, Ford, Dana, Husky Energy, General Dynamics, Accubuilt, and many, many more. Along with several major shopping enterprises which will satisfy most retail desires, we have the finest in medical health care and exceptional educational facilities. We have a wonderful park system which includes many different areas of recreational diversity. We welcome you to Allen County, where many great opportunities abound, and you are able to pursue, and achieve, your dreams. We, as the Board of Allen County Commissioners wish to welcome one and all to our great county. We hope you enjoy your stay, and hope you come back often.

AEDG - Business Climate ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

AEDG – Business Climate The strength of our business community is driven by the efforts of our Allen Economic Development Group; recruiting new businesses, marketing our community and playing host to various new investors, AEDG shows “Real American Strength.”

Technology Leads the Way The past year has seen continued growth in the Lima/Allen County community. Despite the sluggish economy, the local business community is taking a cautiously optimistic position about future growth.

Recently, Alpla brought in four additional manufacturing lines – doubling the capacity of the plant. Plans for 2009 included another addition to the building and to continue to increase production capacity. The plant currently employs approximately 150 people.

Bluffton Center for Entrepreneurs

Advanced Materials Commercialization Center Lima/Allen County is aspiring to be Ohio’s launching pad for even more high tech manufacturing technology. The $1 million Advanced Materials Commercialization Center (AMCC) is operating at American Trim. The 10-ton physical vapor deposition coating chamber is the central component of an experimental project officials hope will change the path of manufacturing. The deposition chamber is very specialized for applying exceptionally thin layers of coatings, at a nano level. Being on the cutting edge of technology and manufacturing processes means American Trim, if the program is as successful as expected, could build its own facility and add 50 or more jobs.

Alpla, Inc. Alpla, Inc., an Austrian company that established manufacturing operations in Fort Shawnee in early 2007, has already experienced a steady growth. A 60,000 square foot addition to the existing facility provided much needed warehouse space.

18

New business is a major driving force for an overall economic stimulus of the Lima/ Allen County community. Utilizing the vast resources the region has to offer, expanding businesses has all that’s needed within its reach – in turn the success of one business may mean new business for those already established – creating a strong, unified business community. The Bluffton Center for Entrepreneurs offers programs that add value to young businesses, accelerate their growth and increase the odds of their success – that’s business incubation. Their services are tailored to the individual needs of each client.

Husky Lima Refinery Lima Refinery continues to plan for the first phase of their facility upgrades. The series of upgrades will move forward over the next several years. Husky’s president has noted additional potential investments and growth in U.S. markets and sited Lima as their launching pad. Not only is Husky investing in capital improvements, but they are also investigating strategic local alliances which could further catapult Lima/Allen County’s energy presence in the world.

www.LimaChamber.com

Joint Systems Manufacturing Center Another national recognized workforce is hosted at the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center (JSMC). General Dynamics, the company managing JSMC for the Department of Defense, has played a major role in bringing new contracts and consequently new employment into the Lima area. These contracts support the latest technologies and equipment being fielded to the US Army, Navy and Marine Corps. The JSMC is once again a predominant force in the community, increasing employment by 300 during the past year, for a total of 1,000 new and retained jobs. The Federal Government has recognized the value of the JSMC by not only awarding a number of significant production contracts, but also authorizing the building of a new Command and Control Center. This 42,000 square foot center will provide a home to both General Dynamics and US Army Leadership at the facility. The Center replaces the 65 year old administration building – a positive sign that the JSMC has a bright future for this area of Northwest Ohio.

Kettle Creations Kettle Creations, formed in 2008, completed construction on a 100,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Gateway Commerce Park in 2009. The new facility will produce mashed potatoes and other hot and cold salads for the retail, restaurant and institutional trade. This facility is the anchor facility in Gateway Commerce Park and is projected to stimulate additional growth.

Community Visioning Community Visioning Community Development with Economic Impact

Leaders of the Lima/Allen County Community work collaboratively with individuals, businesses and government entities to expand economic and community development of the Lima/Allen County region. The Lima/Allen County Chamber of Commerce has actively taken a lead in community development concerns which will have an overall economic impact on the community.

Center for Business Services

One of Lima/Allen County Chamber of Commerce’s primary goals in 2008/2009 was to secure a facility to meet current and future needs of our organization, as well as the other organizations residing within our previous location. After seeking input of all partners, the Chamber Foundation purchased the historic Schnorf and Wagner buildings adjacent/ connected to the Veterans’ Memorial Civic and Convention Center. The collective agencies believed it best suited our overall mission to own our own building, enabling the various organizations to remain under one roof. Today, renovations are complete and the Center for Business Services is now a “one stop shop” for business and community development. The partners residing within the Center for Business Services consist of the Chamber of Commerce, Convention and Visitors Bureau, Allen Economic Development Group, Downtown Lima, Allen Lima Leadership, College Access, Walter C. Pott’s Entrepreneur Center and the Civic and Convention Center’s beautifully restored 3rd flood ballroom, complete with original stained glass and wood molding.

Allen 2020

In an effort to develop a vision for the Lima/Allen County community, the Chamber worked collaboratively with Common Threads to create the “Allen 2020” citizen-driven project. Through this effort, 10 taskforce teams were organized and a five-step process was developed. Many goals and objectives were developed from the 10 task force teams; however, five common threads appeared repeatedly in the final proposals. These common themes include: Practice collaboration, partnership and inclusion; Increase communication among public, private and civic groups and citizens; Enhance the use of technology among government groups and also among community sectors; Eliminate duplicate agencies by establishing county consortiums; Provide public education and awareness opportunities to engage citizens and foster informed decision-making.

The Allen 2020 effort will lead to a community vision focusing on planned growth of the Lima/Allen County Region. The theme of the process was Let’s Choose Our Future, Not Just Let It Happen!

Community Branding

Branding our community is essential to bring commerce and culture together. Working with several businesses, city, county, township government organizations and community representatives, the Chamber assisted in securing support and funding to move the Allen County Community Branding initiative forward. This initiative was developed to market Allen County toward businesses, residents, and visitors; ultimately bringing commerce and culture together as a potent force for creating prosperity – thusly enhancing perception and reputation of our community.

Walter C. Potts Entrepreneur Center

The Chamber Foundation, in collaboration with the Small Business Development Center, Diversified Management Services, Inc. and other local business leaders, established the Walter C. Pott’s Entrepreneur Center. The goal of The Center is to identify and advance opportunities to support economic development and expansion of small and minority businesses. The Walter C. Potts Entrepreneur Center provides a full range of programs and expert services to help start and grow business. The staff at The Center guides clients through the process to make sure their business gets started on the right foot. The Center provides business counseling and conducts a needs assessment, develops an action plan and helps clients move to the next level, provide incubation services and assist them in securing access to capital. The Center also targets middle and high school students throughout Allen County teaching them how to plan business strategies and instills a drive for entrepreneurship at a young age.

A Bit of History HISTORY

Heritage Allen County is a place which has always drawn upon its natural resources and industrial skills to support its economic growth. The Lima area is also steeped in a rich history that dates back to the 1800s. Take a drive anywhere in Allen County and you will see the landscape dotted with historical markers paying homage to important events in our region’s history.

This area was once populated by Shawnee Indians, which is where some of our local communities’ names have originated. Allen County wasn’t founded until 1820, and whose namesake came from War of 1812 hero, Col. John Allen. The City of Lima was incorporated in 1842. At that time, lumber and mills were the area’s main industries. The Miami-Erie Canal opened in 1845 on the west-side of Allen County, sparking the growth of the county by allowing passengers and freight to move easily in and out of the region. You can find the entire story of the canal’s construction at a roadside park, just south of the Village of Spencerville. The decade after the Canal opened, three rail companies laid track through Allen County, and heavy industry grew. In 1880, the Lima Machine Works began production of the Shay Locomotive, an engine, though long out of production, still can be found in use today. Images of trains can be found throughout much of Allen County – as this is where much of the railroad’s innovation first took place. Just five years after Lima began production of the Shay Locomotive, businessman Benjamin Faurot struck oil in Lima, while drilling for natural gas. This stroke of good luck led to a boom which at one point gave Lima claim to the largest known oil field in the world. Throughout history, Lima has been a resilient community, resourceful enough to never rely on a single source of economic growth. Today, the title of “largest industry” is shared by several sectors in Allen County – while manufacturing and agriculture both work to move Lima forward, Healthcare and Education continue to grow and enrich this community; employing thousands of Allen County residents. Community strength grows as our past is incorporated and blends into our everyday life and into our plans for the future.

Where to Live RELOCATION

Allen County has a Place for You! Real Estate within Allen County has the luxury of accommodating every taste… residents can find themselves in the quiet countryside or one of the many beautifully restored historic homes on the Market Street Boulevard. Allen County consistently ranks among the most affordable places to live. What’s more, you will get far more real estate for your money than neighboring markets. Allen County residents can choose the regional hub of a 10-county area with all its offerings or a quite country home where traffic – aside from the occasional tractor – is sparse. In between are communities which revolve around their local schools, community festivals and local churches. From single family homes to beautiful condominium and town home communities, the pricing to purchase a home has never been better… the 2010 average sale price for a home in Lima in was $99,920, well below the State of Ohio median of $135,934. Those looking for apartment living also have a great variety of options, again for less than similar housing would cost in other markets. Regardless of if you choose a house or apartment, the city limits or wide-open country spaces, you’re never far from the restaurants, shopping, the arts or other forms of entertainment – all offered within minutes of Downtown Lima.

Healthcare QUALITY OF LIFE

Well-Equipped to Meet Your Healthcare Needs Perhaps the most visible sign of growth within the Lima/Allen County region is the ever-evolving presence of medical services. It seems that every time you turn around, there is another state-ofthe-art facility being built or an existing medical center is expanding. It is certain that Allen County offers all of the health care services you would normally find in a large metropolitan area… delivered with the care and attention reflective of that in a small, close-knit community. The compassion, commitment and community integration of each of our hospitals and healthcare providers reflects the core values of which encompass “Real American Strength.”

Blanchard Valley Regional Health System, Bluffton Hospital Part of the Findlay-based Blanchard Valley Health System, the Bluffton Hospital is a 25-bed, short-term acute care facility. Founded as Mennonite Deaconess Sanitarium in 1908, the hospital later became Bluffton Community Hospital. It has been at its current site since 1936 and became part of the Blanchard Valley Health System in 1995. The Bluffton Hospital offers a Level 1 obstetrics unit, emergency care, in and out patient surgical care, radiology, mammography, laboratory and rehabilitation services along with traditional in patient nursing care. Blanchard Valley Health System’s Bluffton Hospital earned Critical Access Hospital status in 2004. The hospital serves over 35,000 patients annually from Allen, Hancock, Hardin and Putnam counties, with family physicians as the primary caregivers and medical specialists from Lima and Findlay providing for local access to serve a variety of needs.

Lima Memorial Health System Lima Memorial Health System focuses on treating patients’ whole life, not just their medical condition, through the latest in technology, years of experience and the utmost respect for patients and their families. Lima Memorial is home to The Heart and Vascular Institute which performs more open heart surgeries and more cardiac catheterizations than any other hospital in the region. LMHS also offers an advanced Emergency Center that includes a Level II Trauma Center capable of treating 98 percent of life threatening injuries.

The Family Birth Center is an extension of Toledo Children’s Hospital, bringing the expertise of one of the Midwest’s top pediatric hospitals closer to home for families in West Central Ohio. The Family Birth Center staff embrace the concept of family-centered care and provides single-room maternity care in birthing suites. Women experience labor, deliver, recovery and postpartum all in a single room. In addition, the Level II Neonatal Nursery provides care for babies born at 32 weeks gestation or greater and to those who need close watching or extra help after birth. Other services include: • Laboratory Services • Oncology Services • Orthopaedic Center • Radiology and Imaging Center • Women’s Health Center • Wellness Center and Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab Services • Wound Center • And a network of primary care, pediatric and specialist physicians in our Lima Memorial Professional Corporation (LMPC).

Each year LMHS hosts and participates in more than 100 community events designed to educate and provide needed health screenings to a broad spectrum of people in our communities. These efforts, combined with providing care for individuals in need, result in more than $25 million annually in community benefit dollars going back to the region. Continued on page 28

St. Rita’s Medical Center Allen County’s largest hospital and employer is growing again. In 2009, the Catholic Health Partners medical center completed a $130 million expansion, opening a nine-story patient care tower. It will mark the most recent, most visible part of an ongoing growth of the medical center that opened in 1918. St. Rita’s continues to bring patient and family-focused health care to the community is serves. The 500 new jobs that accompanied the expansion put St. Rita’s employment at more than 3,000 people. The medical center, in recent years, opened The Henry and Beverly Hawk Heart and Vascular Center, added LifeFlight, an ambulance service, became a Level II trauma center and expanded its emergency department to include three urgent care centers – located on the east and west sides of Lima, as well as in Delphos, and became a Level II neonatal nursery. St. Rita’s Regional Cancer Center, across Market Street from the main campus, houses several offices to help those diagnosed with cancer. The American College of Radiology has designated St. Rita’s Women’s Wellness Center as a “Breast Imaging Centers of Excellence”. As part of its commitment to healthy lifestyles, St. Rita’s became completely tobacco-free in 2006. The hospital doesn’t allow smoking or other tobacco use at its main campus in Lima or at any of its satellite facilities in the region. Medical Center management said the change is to make the medical center a stronger advocate for healthy lifestyles. St. Rita’s also operates an ambulatory care center in Ottawa and physical rehabilitation services in Ottawa and Wapakoneta.

Orthopaedic Institute of Ohio and the Institute for Orthopaedic Surgery The Institute for Orthopaedic Surgery (IOS) and the Orthopaedic Institute of Ohio (OIO) are conveniently located on one campus as the region’s premier orthopaedic health care center.

28

surgeries can stay up to a week. The hospital also offers orthopaedic out-patient surgery, physical and occupational therapy and laboratory services for its patients. The hospital’s patient satisfaction ratings rank among the highest in the country. Located on this campus are the offices of the region’s largest orthopaedic surgical practice, OIO. The orthopaedic practice includes 13 orthopaedic surgeons with a range of specialties and a PMR physician. The facility is equipped with its own x-ray and MRI. OIO offers bone density testing, a walk-in sports injury clinic, a foot and ankle clinic, and a spine care/scoliosis clinic. OIO has satellite offices located in St. Mary’s, Van Wert, Ottawa, Bluffton, Delphos, Kenton and Coldwater.

Triumph Hospital – Lima Triumph Hospital – Lima, specializes in providing services to medically complex patients for whom the short-term care hospital is no longer the most appropriate, or cost-effective setting for necessary continued care. The hospital’s staffing and technology have been designed to meet the unique needs of those who are catastrophically injured or chronically ill, while taking an individualized care management approach. Triumph Hospital is certified by HCFA as a hospital, licensed by the State of Ohio as an Acute Care Hospital, Accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations, and is a member of the Ohio Hospital Association.

Education QUALITY OF LIFE

Educational Advances Provides Traditional and Non-traditional Approaches to Learning The Lima area offers a wide variety of K-12 options for you and your family, from first-rate school districts and private schools to innovative public schools that are always on the cutting edge of technology. Once high school graduation has passed, it is now easier than ever to continue their education in several of the area colleges and universities. Allen County schools continued their traditions of excellence in 2010, as public school districts either maintained or improved their ratings on Ohio’s public school report cards. Combined with a variety of extracurricular activities, the education Allen County’s schools provide is shaping the leaders of tomorrow. Faced with the challenges of any urban school district, the Lima City Schools saw several individual schools improve their state-tested performances. Additionally, Allen County has numerous districts listed as effective or excellent.

Many of the area schools have recently completed “facelifts.” In 2010 the Elida school district built a brand new high school for their students, faculty and community. Upon completion the 169,000 square foot facility houses 185 rooms – 56 of which are classrooms, an auditorium seating 670, community meeting room and a 19,000 square foot courtyard. Just by looking at any of the K-12 buildings in the Lima/Allen County area, you can tell education is held to a high standard. We have made a commitment to education, and we are always looking for new and innovative ways to teach our children. The Allen County community not only has exceptional public schools, but also offers alternatives to the City or County schools by offering private, parochial and online educational opportunities. The Golden Bridge Academy is one example of a non-profit, private school for students in pre-school through sixth grade. The premise behind the teaching at GBA is that all children learn at their own rate and when given the opportunity there is a genuine and lasting love of learning which is instilled at an early age.

www.LimaChamber.com

The West Central Learning Academy is another example of non-traditional schooling. The Learning Academy is an online public school chartered by the State of Ohio to provide an educational choice for students. This program allows students to complete a portfolio of courses from grades 7-12 required for graduation. The Learning Academy provides supplemental assessment and intervention activities and encourages independent research and creative thinking.

Higher Education Allen County’s colleges and universities continue to see record numbers of student enrollment which has fueled several additions and renovations on campuses across the county. Not only are the physical campuses growing, but new classes and courses are constantly being added to the curriculum. These additional courses are not only for our recent high school graduates, they are also for adult continuing education programs. Adult education programs are a growing trend within the region and they allow the Allen County community to be a leader in workforce development.

College Access Have you ever attended a presentation where the speaker is talking about the hidden secrets in the area and how they impact the business community? The Lima/ Allen County College Access Program is one of Northwest Ohio’s hidden treasures. The College Access/GEAR-UP program is one of only thirty-six college access programs in the state of Ohio. Our program has been in existence since 2002 and is a program of the Lima Area Chamber Foundation. College Access provides free assistance to individuals of all ages in the area on how to pursue an education beyond high school. A common misconception about the College Access program is the thought that every student should attend

Individuals can receive assistance by meeting with an advisor at the College Access/GEAR-UP offices located at 144 South Main Street, Lima OH 45801.

college and obtain a four year degree, while we would love for every student to attend a four-year program, we understand that each student is unique and we work with the individual on what is the best fit in regard to postsecondary education. Another misconception is that our program serves only individuals in Lima and Allen County. Our Resource Center is open Tuesday evenings during the school year at the Lima YMCA Annex to help individuals from the region complete college forms. The College Access program offers ACT prep in the fall and financial aid assistance in the spring; we also offer monthly workshops at the YMCA Annex on various college topics.

You may be asking how College Access directly impacts workforce development. The College Access program strives to assist individuals who are unable to overcome the barriers of pursuing an education beyond high school, such as being a first-generation student, inability to pay for the rising cost of college, and lack of support. According to the US Census (2000), the percentage of individuals who have received a Bachelor's Degree in Allen County is only 13.4%. It may be difficult to see the impact because some of the programs offered deal with young students and isn’t necessarily immediate. With early awareness programs, we give students exposure to college by visiting local campuses, teaching them how to save for college, and helping them relate their skills into a career. Realizing many local factories and businesses require training after high school, we may encourage students to attend a local career center to get a certificate or provide the presentation on skilled trades. College

Access is beneficial to our region’s workforce development through the collaboration of youth and service programs. Additionally, we partner with adult programs and agencies to offer workshops and individual support to adults wanting to start or return to college. Why support College Access, when students should be getting the support from a school counselor or local agency? Often the student to counselor ratio in many schools is approximately 400 to 1. The roles of the counselor have changed and require more concentration on scheduling and testing, while College Access advisors can provide specific training on the college process, entrance exams, and financial forms, specifically the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Understanding the college process can be intimidating and overwhelming especially for a firstgeneration student. Therefore, advisors are able to provide the time and effort to work individually with parents, students, and adults.

Agricultural Imacts on Allen County Community

The Lima/Allen County agricultural community exemplifies “Real American Strength.” As our county’s largest industry, with over 940 farms locally, our farmers’ dedication to community, the environment and creating an exceptional product has enticed major national manufacturers to call the Lima/Allen County community home.

A Community of Faith QUALITY OF LIFE

The Faith Community is Rooted Deeply in the Allen County Community

A strong faith community showcases “Real American Strength” through diverse cultural and personal religious beliefs. Our country prides itself on having the freedom to worship and our community has several strong traditions of faith, beginning as early as the 1820’s when Mennonites, the first recorded religious group to enter Allen County, established the area’s first churches.

A Historical Look

By 1840, Mennonites, Methodists, Presbyterians, Baptists and Lutherans all established thriving congregations in the county. Before 1900, the German Reformed Church, Church of Christ, Episcopal Church, Church of Christ the Scientist and the Jewish community all established congregations within Allen County.

Worship styles among Allen County churches range from the formal and traditional to contemporary and full-gospel styles.

A Cooperative Spirit

As reviewed, the diversity among the faith community allows for a cooperative spirit enables churches, religious-based organizations, outreach programs and social service ministries to touch those within the region who are in need of assistance – regardless of denomination. The Mary Alice House is an example of those cooperative ministries providing outreach efforts. The Mary Alice House offers a residence for those recovering from drug and alcohol abuse. While the Mary Alice House is an outreach ministry of Philippians Missionary Baptist Church, the project partners with

In 1944, Roman Catholics in Delphos built St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church, a beautiful stone cathedral with ornate, stained glass windows. St. John’s Church became a strong foundation for Catholic traditions within Allen County. Today, Allen County’s Catholic community plays a prominent and important role in both civic and business affairs. Nearly 200 formal church congregations and places of worship comprise the Allen County faith community. Added to the pre-1900 mix are the Church of Nazarene, Salvation Army, Assembly of God, Missionary Baptists, Korean Alliance, Pentecostal, Southern Baptists, Church of the Brethren, Missionary Alliance, Jehovah’s Witness, Latter Day Saints, and a grand variety of independent places of worship. Allen County is also home to a significant Muslim community.

The diversity among the ministries and cooperative efforts among the faith community allows Allen County to be equipped with a wide-variety of faith-based, social service programs and community projects.

With churches working together, there is no sense of competition. Rather than duplicate services, these partners are supporting each others’ programs. Each church has it’s own unique fingerprint that makes it suited for particular ministries. The diversity among the ministries and cooperative efforts among the faith community allows Allen County to be equipped with a wide-variety of faith-based, social service programs and community projects. Community outreach programs include, but are not limited to Lutheran Social Services, Teens for Christ Youth Ministry, Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen, Lima Rescue Mission, as well as the Salvation Army’s food pantry and clothing store. These are only a small sampling of the outreach efforts spanning across the community. Allen County’s faith community also holds a prominent role in private enterprise. Numerous businesses are owned by churches and their members. United States Plastic Corp. is among the most unique of the local Christian businesses.

WTGN began broadcasting on 97.7 FM on September 27, 1966; WTGN was Lima’s first 24-hour radio station and today is a secondary affiliate of the Moody Broadcasting Network with towers in Findlay and Kenton, Ohio. In 2000 the FCC authorized a new class of radio, Low Power FM, created to allow communitybased, non-profit educational organizations and governments to operate radio stations, thereby better meeting the needs of their communities. This new class of radio enabled the Calvary Bible Church to establish WCBV in 2003. Christian broadcasting also extends into television. In 1972, WTLW-TV launched its first broadcast as Lima’s Christian television station. WTLW is an award-winning station which produces many of its own shows and specials.

Restaurant Guide TOURISM

Local Restaurants Offer Satisfying Options for Every Taste The Lima/Allen County area has its bases covered when it comes to satisfying hungry appetites – family owned pizza places, upscale eateries, and laid-back coffee houses are just a few examples of the diverse selection available when looking for your next meal.

If you are looking for your caffeine-fix and aren’t downtown, stop into Biggby Coffee by the Clocktown Plaza for one of their amazing specialty drinks… you can order everything from skinny lattes to the most decedent double dark hot chocolate (and try it frozen, yep, Frozen Hot Chocolate). Be sure to order a scone, muffin, or bragel - nope, that’s not a typo, that’s a breakfast bagel for those Biggby newbies - to accompany your made-to-order specialty drink. Two of Lima’s most recognized eateries are the Happy Daz restaurants and the Kewpees. The original Happy Daz restaurant opened in 1986 and is still operating in its original location, offering diners a 50’s style atmosphere and award winning burgers and milkshakes. Happy Daz is owned and operated by John Heaphy, a life-time resident of the Lima community. The success of the original Happy Daz prompted Mr. Heaphy to open four additional restaurant locations thought the Lima area. Happy Daz offers something for everyone; you’ll find big city favorites like Brooklyn pastrami, Kansas City rib-eye and Memphis BBQ - health conscious menu items like lean turkey burgers, healthy salads and wraps round out your options. No worries though, you can still find their Diner Classics menu – burgers, tenderloins and melts.

One of downtown Lima’s most recent additions to the restaurant scene is Vivace’ Café. Opening in 2010, Vivace offers Mediterranean cuisine that is unmatched in the area. From their unique twist on classic favorites like their grilled cheese Panini with assorted cheese and mint to the amazing Mediterranean Veggie sandwich with their homemade hummus there are options for every diner – carnivores or veggie eaters alike. When the Ohio weather permits, be sure to grab a seat in their outdoor dining area and enjoy your meal and the newly renovated downtown Lima streetscape. A downtown classic is The Meeting Place on Market. Opened in 2003 by the Brogee and Stover families, The Meeting Place is a gourmet coffee shop that serves a variety of breakfast options to get your morning off right to wrap-style sandwiches, amazing salads, and soups – featuring an unbelievable Tomato Bisque. If you do grab a bite to eat with your Café Mocha, be sure to save room for dessert, as they offer a wide variety of melt-in-yourmouth homemade cheesecakes, brownies and cookies.

Any traveler coming through the Lima area is often urged to try a Kewpee, after many questions as to figure out what a Kewpee is, the traveler finds themselves dining at one of the Lima area’s most famous and well-know restaurants. Regardless of what side of town you are on, you can find a Kewpee. Lima’s original Kewpee restaurant was built in downtown Lima in the 1930’s featuring an enormous Kewpee Doll over the front door; this restaurant also featured a car turntable – sorry the turntable isn’t in operation today. Kewpee restaurants also include Kewpee West and Kewpee East; all of which offer traditional hand-dipped shakes and malts, toasted cheese, hamburgers/ cheeseburgers, cheese fries and homemade root beer. So when you are looking for one of the city’s best lunch or dinner time restaurants, remember – “Hamburg with pickle on top, makes your heart go flippity-flop.”
