Community leaders Serving Up Smiles at Bucyrus Elementary April 29
Posted on 04/21/2015

The Bucyrus Food Services Department is taking a little different approach to serving meals to Bucyrus Elementary students this spring. The procedures will be the same, but the faces will be different. On April 29, a contingent of community leaders will bear the lunch service aprons and will be Serving Up Smiles during lunch at Bucyrus Elementary.

"I think this is going to be a great opportunity for our students to meet people they may only see if they have an emergency or get in trouble at school or in the community," Food Services Manager Lorie Pennington said. "We want our children to know that these individuals are here to help them and that they (individuals serving) want to see our students be successful."

Special guests serving lunch will include; Crawford County Common Pleas Court Judge Sean Leuthold, Crawford County Sheriff Scott Kent, Bucyrus Mayor Jeff Reser, Bucyrus Chief of Police David Koepke, Bucyrus Fire Chief Jay Keller, Bucyrus Police Officer John Dorsey and Bucyrus City School District Board of Education member Traci Wetterau. In addition to meeting the community leaders, students will also have opportunities to win prizes and will be treated to special decorations throughout the lunchroom.

"I want to personally thank Judge Leuthold, Sheriff Kent, Mayor Reser, Chief Koepke, Chief Keller, Officer Dorsey and Ms. Wetterau for taking time from their busy schedules to spend a few hours with our Elementary students,"Superintendent Kevin Kimmel said. "It's important for our district to maintain a healthy, working relationship with our partners from the City and County, and this event helps to foster that strong bond."
