Letter: Lima supports community


Lima/Allen County community is awesome! I have had the pleasure of working with many agencies and companies during my 15 years with Allen County Council on Aging. Strong valuable community support is evident throughout these years.

A recent example of community support and great partnership is Interdyne Environmental Services completing a project for the Council on Aging. During July and August, technicians from Interdyne worked for weeks removing and properly disposing of asbestos and lead-based paint from our agency’s soon-to-be new location at 700 North Main. When the project was finished, Jake Kersh and Bill Bresson informed me that they were donating a huge part of the cost of this extensive removal project. Wonderful news.

Lima/Allen County joint ventures, partnerships, collaborations and program sponsors have been and continue to be most important in our continued and effective efforts to stretch local service dollars while maintaining and expanding services for the 60+ population.

On behalf of senior citizens, employees, and the board of directors, we thank Interdyne Environmental/Trans Vac for making our new building safe from toxic materials and for the generous donation to Allen County Council on Aging. This community is the best. We thank you!
