Bucyrus Food Services Department is taking a little different approach
to serving meals to Bucyrus Elementary students this spring. The

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

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
