We will be welcoming him back officially, telling his story and thanking those who helped get him back where he belongs. So come down early and help us welcome our frog back.

Marcos Fundraiser for PPBA

PPBA Mrcos fundraiser

City of Toledo teams up with Point Place to kick off T-Town

The City of Toledo along with the Point Place Business Association and other community organizations are hosting the kick off of Point Place T-Town. T-Town is a concept Mayor Collins has taken from a program in Ireland called Tidy Town. It is a program to promote friendly, safe, clean and beautiful communities. Point Place has been chosen to be one of the neighborhood communities to initiate this concept.

On Saturday, May 17th from 9:00 am to noon, please join your neighbors in a Point Place/Shoreland Community clean-up. We will be meeting at the Friendship Park Community Center (2930 131st Street). Gloves, bags and vests will be provided, as well as dumpsters for recyclables and garbage.

Also on Saturday, May 17th from 9:00 am to noon, the City of Toledo’s Department of Public Service will have dumpsters for recyclables and garbage at the Friendship Park Community Center. They will be accepting yard waste, furniture, electronics, etc. The Division of Environmental Services is also hosting a “pitch your paint” party at the Point Place May 17th clean-up event, so lead based and latex paints will be accepted for disposal. Tires will NOT be accepted for disposal. More information on PPBA Facebook  page and in the May 12 issue of the Point & Shoreland Journal.

Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday!


PPBA 39th Annual Easter Egg Hunt

Saturday, April 19, 2014
Friendship Park Community Center
10:00 am

Volunteers need to be at the park at 8:30 am on April 19

From Nancy Anderson, Easter Egg Hunt Chairperson:

We need your help to make this year’s Easter Egg Hunt a big success. Monetary donations are always welcome and will be used to purchase prizes for the children. Donations can be anything from a filled Easter basket, stuffed animal, game or toy. We also accept gift certificates that would be appropriate for a child or family for restaurants, toys, bowling, miniature golf, etc.

A donation of your time is also needed and appreciated. Many volunteers are needed the day of the Easter Egg Hunt. Feel free to bring family members and friends to help. Please be at Friendship Park by 8:30 am.

The PPBA Easter Egg Hunt is one of the oldest and largest in the Toledo area. It is because of your generous support over the years that it is such a success. We have had up to 1,000 people attending in past years. Over 700 prizes and handouts are given out including candy from our very own Easter Bunny. Over 1,600 plastic eggs filled with candy are spread throughout the park. Every child walks away with a prize. There are several Grand Prizes hidden in eggs in each of the five age groups.

If you have any questions or need a donation to be picked up, please call me at the number below. Donations can also be dropped off at Rite Aid, 4869 N. Summit St. Please mark your donations to “The Attention of Nancy Anderson.” Checks should be made payable to PPBA Easter Egg Hunt and can be mailed to P.O. Box 5074, Toledo, OH 43611. Please mark outside of envelope for Easter Egg Hunt.

If you can help afternoons to help sort toys into age groups, please contact me. We will also need five trucks, vans, or SUV’s the morning of the Easter Egg Hunt to transport prizes the Friendship Park.

Thank you again for your generosity and help in the past and we know we can count on you again this year to make this a great Easter Egg Hunt for the children of our Point Place Community.
