Schonhardt promotes Hilliard during business breakfast By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers
Hilliard is a place where dreams can become a reality, Mayor Don Schonhardt told hundreds of business people last week at a morning breakfast meeting in the Four Seasons Columbus. The meeting was a chance for business people to learn about other vendors who had exhibits set up in the space, have a cup of coffee or juice, and network. Several Hilliard City Council members were in attendance, as well as other local movers and shakers. After an hour, Schonhardt spoke briefly, using the meeting to invite businesses and people to Hilliard. â€œThe city of Hilliard has
changed dramatically in the last decade,â€? Schonhardt said. â€œMany of you who have not been here for a while have seen the obvious changes to our community. I think one of the most important changes that we can talk about is how business-friendly the city of Hilliard has become.â€? Schonhardt said economic development director David Meeks â€œworks diligently to reduce and eliminate as many barriers as we are able to make Hilliard a place that you can do business and build that dream of yours into a reality.â€? He said the Four Seasons was the dream of the late Jim Trueman, founder of Red Roof Inns and a long-time Hilliard resident. Trueman worked closely with
Bobby Rahal, co-owner of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, whose facility remains in Hilliard. â€œThe city of Hilliard has made tremendous advances over the past several years, and weâ€™re extremely proud of what weâ€™ve been able to accomplish,â€? Schonhardt said. â€œBut weâ€™re also transforming Hilliard into the Hilliard of tomorrow, and we have a lot of technology industries that have elected to move their businesses here to the city of Hilliard. â€œWe have Verizon, Star Dynamics, Micro Electronics â€” many of these names are familiar to you. And we also have many smaller businesses that are taking their dream and turning it into a reality in the city of Hilliard. â€œBMW Financial Group just
up the roadway, and this (past) week we have 80 of BMWâ€™s top executives from 26 different countries visiting right here in the city of Hilliard. I think that just speaks volumes to what we are able to
provide for the businesses that locate here and the residents who call Hilliard home.â€? Schonhardt closed by thanking them for attending and urging them not to speed on Trueman

of a â€œHealthy Dog Fair.â€? Exhibitors will have information and advice for dog owners. Thereâ€™s also a dog jog at 2:30 p.m. led by the Hilliard Police Departmentâ€™s K-9 unit dog. Finally, on Monday, April 18, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., there will be an â€œAdult Health Fairâ€? at the Y. Health issues concerning adults like high blood pressure, mammograms and prostate cancer will be addressed by a dozen vendors. â€œItâ€™s a full weekend of stuff,â€? Cottrill said. â€œAll this is dealing with healthy communities. The YMCA wants healthier individuals and stronger families. Most of the things we do (helps make) people healthier, active, be involved in activities. Itâ€™s all about improving the health and well-being of kids and families in our community. Thatâ€™s why we do stuff.â€?

The Hilliard Area Garden Clubâ€™s fourth annual â€œGarden Affairâ€? is that organizationâ€™s big event of the year, according to its president. â€œIt started out with 15-20 people,â€? said Mike Walls. â€œLast year, we had around 75-80 people attend, and itâ€™s picked up in interest.â€? The Garden Affair takes place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 19, in the Hilliard Senior Center, 3800 Veterans Memorial Drive. Admission is free. There will be exhibits from Amity Abloom, Central Ohio Cactus & Succulent Society, Chadwick Arboretum, Columbus Garden Railway Society, Com Til, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the Ohio Governorâ€™s Residence and Heritage Garden, as well as other vendors. â€œItâ€™s very cozy,â€? Walls said. â€œWe donâ€™t want it to be some national flower show type thing.â€? The eventâ€™s big draw is its guest speaker at 7 p.m. This year, itâ€™s Scott Zanon, the author of â€œDesirable Trees for the Midwest.â€? On the bookâ€™s website, Zanon said he chaired the Scarlet Golf Course Restoration Committee at the Ohio State University Golf Club in 2003. Finding there were no guides listing desirable trees and possessing degrees from OSU in agronomy and horticulture, he wrote his own book on the subject.
â€œDesirable Treesâ€? is subtitled â€œ50 for the Home Landscape and Larger Properties.â€? But donâ€™t expect Zanon to mention every tree. â€œWe started advertising it as the 50, and then he (Zanon) goes, â€˜I may only talk about 20 of them, because Iâ€™ve only got an hour.â€™â€? Walls said the club gets good speakers at their monthly meetings as well, such as Hilliard gardener and television personality Tom McNutt. â€œHe goes, â€˜I normally get $20,000 (per talk), but for you guys, Iâ€™d be glad to come over,â€? Walls said McNutt joked. The club also has a summer field trip (last year it was the Cranberry Bog at Buckeye Lake), an annual flower sale and potluck dinners at a memberâ€™s home during the growing season. The potluck is a favorite, offering the host a chance to show off. Walls said the club receives $2,000 each year from the city of Hilliard. â€œWhat we do is give all of it back in some sort of project every year in the city,â€? Walls said. The organizationâ€™s current project is a veteranâ€™s memorial at the Municipal Park. New members are welcome, Walls said, and the garden club is unique. â€œWe have an amazing number of men that are members,â€? Walls said. â€œI think I am the only man president of a garden club in the state of Ohio. One thing we do not do is flower arranging (unlike) a lot of the garden clubs around.â€?
