TIFFIN, OHIO – November 6, 2023 – The Downtown Tiffin Design Committee is excited to announce its upcoming Leaf Clean-Up event, scheduled for Saturday, November 18, from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM. This family-friendly community initiative welcomes individuals of all ages to participate in a morning of leaf and trash clean-up.
Volunteers will meet at Cherry Alley, located across from the Ritz Theatre, where the event will kick off. Leaf bags, rakes, and brooms will be provided. The event offers an excellent opportunity for anyone in need of community service hours or anyone who wants to help continue the beautification of Downtown Tiffin.
Mayor Dawn Iannantuono stated "The community's hard work and dedication to cleaning up downtown has already made a significant impact, and we're excited to see that spirit continue at the Leaf Clean-Up event."
A special addition, to this year's downtown clean-ups, is the "Litter League," where individuals or teams can compete to see who can collect the most leaves and litter. So far this year over 1000 pounds of trash have been collected during the Downtown Tiffin Clean-Ups.
To make the event as efficient and organized as possible, volunteers are encouraged to sign up in advance. Registration is available at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0944A5AB2AA1FCC70-downtown#/. Sign up as an individual or gather a team. Every participant in the Leaf Clean-Up event will receive a free t-shirt and a lunch coupon to enjoy after the clean-up.
About Downtown Tiffin
The revitalization of downtown Tiffin began in 2011, when a group of community members came together to form “Tiffin Tomorrow”, with the goal of promoting and encouraging economic development in Downtown Tiffin, and creating plans, programs and actions to ensure long-term vitality and prosperity. In 2014, the City of Tiffin contracted with SIEDC to act as the downtown organization and “Tiffin Tomorrow” came under the SIEDC (now TSEP) umbrella as the “Downtown Development Board,” which serves as the governing board of the downtown organization. In 2015, Tiffin joined Heritage Ohio’s Main Street Program. For more information, click here.
