UNION CITY, Ohio — Union City, Ohio, Mayor Scott Stahl visited Head Start’s Kids Learning Place at the United Methodist Church here this week, presenting all of the students present for the day with socks for winter.
Six children were presented with socks in the morning class and 15 received them in the afternoon class.
In addition, Stahl, who is also a member of the Union City Browns Backers, the children were presented with orange foam Dawg bones. Helping him do that was Nancy Snyder, a 30-year child advocate, who is also a member of the Browns Backers.
“Our [the Browns Backers’] goal is to help kids,” Stahl said. “They need some help. Kids could always benefit from additional socks. It went over well last year and we decided to do it again this year.”
During his visit, the children had the opportunity to ask him questions, while he told them the duties of his position as mayor.
Before, during and after they received the sponge bones, which read “100 percent Dawg Pound,” the youngsters were barking and waving their sponge bones.
