Ashland University faculty, staff and students are invited to participate in an “AU to Main Street” event on Oct. 28 from 4 to 6 p.m. The event was rescheduled for today following a rain out on Oct. 21.
The event will involve AU faculty, staff, and students meeting in front of the Rec Center at 4 p.m. and being led by Tuffy in the estimated ½-mile walk to Ashland’s Main Street. Once in the downtown area, AU employees and students are asked to visit the many merchants and get a passport stamped at those locations. Those with five stamps can enter a drawing to win prizes.
“We want everyone to see what the city of Ashland has to offer. The downtown merchants and Mayor Glen Stewart will welcome Ashland University faculty, staff and students to the Ashland downtown and the Main Street area,” said Deborah Sullivan, director of Campus Wellness and co-organizer of the event with Mark Burgess from the city of Ashland and Sandra Tunnell from Ashland Main Street. “All faculty, staff and students are encouraged to participate, even if that means meeting us downtown after 5 p.m. if necessary.”
