Working with 5 Healthy Towns and Chelsea Schools, we will kick off Walk to School Wednesdays. And we've added a Bike Repair Station to our grounds. This fall, we will also host American Farmer—a national touring exhibition that celebrates our community's rich farming heritage. We're kicking things off in Lima Town- ship at our Rockin' on the Farm event at Bel Liberty Farm.
