After the July 24 block party, the next event will take place at the Bradfield Community Center on August 14. “A number of local nonprofit agencies will be on hand, distributing information about their services and giving some giveaways and handouts,” Unterbrink said. “We’ll have a free vaccine clinic on hand, with some incentives for Medicaid recipients who are vaccinated.” Activate Allen County’s Saturday block party at the South Jackson Community Garden will be the first of four taking place throughout the summer and fall.
For the kids, the Lima Park Rangers and Lima Fire Department will be on hand for activities. There will also be a bounce house along with other kid-friendly activities. Highlights of the block party, which will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., include live music from Stedic Music, food trucks, community vendors and food distribution from West Ohio Food Bank and Children’s Hunger Alliance.
While the slate of activities is fun, the health resources that will be available might be the most important aspect of the block party. Mercy Health will be there to provide free health screenings, and Health Partners of Western Ohio will be having a pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinic. There will be goodies galore for those who come out. The events all lead up to the Healthy Families Expo at the Civic Center in November. The parties have been made possible thanks to an innovation grant given to Activate Allen County by United Way.
Saturday’s block party will have activities for the kids led by the Lima Park Rangers and Lima Fire Department. There will also be a bounce house along with other kid-friendly activities.
