Plus this information from the Advertiser-Tribune:
Tiffin became a Heritage Ohio Main Street Community in 2016, after two years of affiliate membership. The release states the program works on a four-point approach emphasizing organization, design, promotions and marketing and economic development in downtown revitalization.
Tiffin City Councilman Tyler Shuff, who manages the Laird Arcade building, said the event is a great way to introduce college students to downtown.
He said many students might be aware of where Westgate is, but he is glad the event gives them a chance to be exposed to some of the “mom-and-pop shops” downtown.
“It’s a great way to introduce the college students to what all we have to offer downtown,”Shuff said. “It’s a great thing.”
