It's hard to believe that students will be back in the classroom in just a couple of weeks and Lima City Schools wants to send them back in style.

The district is inviting all Allen County students to a Back to School Celebration on Tuesday, August 14th. Thanks to the support of many area businesses and organizations, students will be receiving free school supplies. Families attending will be able to talk with school officials and school resource officers. There will even be a wiffle ball game with the Lima Senior baseball program and free food. Organizers are only asking one thing from those who attend.

"We feel as a school district, I think as a community that it is our opportunity to give back to the community, we are asking our families if you are coming out and you are taking advantage of this opportunity to bring a canned item for our food pantries that West Ohio Food Bank has in three of our schools," said Jill Ackerman, Lima City Schools Superintendent. 

The Back to School Celebration will be held at the Martin Luther King Jr. Park from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, August 14th. This is the second year for the event.
