Katelyn & Drew are rekindling my connection to Toledo, Ohio

Posted By on December 28, 2017


My daughter and son-in-law, who moved back to Ohio in 2017, send me occasional updates from my "birth" city and the surrounding area. This past week the Toledo Blade reflected on 2017 in the "glass city" with its Finding Nellie illustration and included the Promedica Promenade Park revitalization … with Drew’s dad dancing in the center of the illustration.
Smiles aside, those who suffered through the decades of urban decline in Toledo are now enjoying a very strong urban and suburban rebound. NW Ohio residents and local businesses must be pleased with the dedication and teamwork of city and business leaders in bringing back their city. Hopefully the growth will continue in 2018 and make  residents (and former residents) proud to call Toledo their hometown.
