Busy Saturday in Ytown, Come on Down

It's a good Saturday to be in Downtown Youngstown!! You can start the day at a serice event, and finish it up with something fun. For those of you that have service in your hearts and can't sleep in on the weekends, (yes, there are actually people who don't sleep in on the weekends,) you can meet at the Chevy Centre starting at 7:15 Saturday morning. It is Youngstown's first organized, "Clean Up Day." Linda DeJoe and Jenna Nameth, who work for the city's Litter Control and Recycling Department, have organized this event. The clean up is scheduled from 8am to Noon. Youngstown State University, along with area churches and schools, have offered to help out the event. Corporate sponsors allowed the City to purchase T-Shirts to give out to the volunteers, and free coffee will be provided. Let's help clean up Youngstown everyone. Just a little at a time like this helps a lot, and encourages others not to litter. For more information or to pre-register, you can call 330-744-7526.

After the clean-up, how about a little fun at the big Octoberfest Party on the Plaza that the City of Youngstown is putting on. This is the first time the City has put on the event since the early 90's. There will be food beer and traditional German music being played. The festival opens at noon and closes at 11 p.m. On Saturday, the Youngstown Saxon Brass Band will play from 1-4 p.m.; Del Rezak Band, 5-7:30 p.m.; and Al Hreno Orchestra, 8:30-11 p.m. The Heimat Klang and Saxon Brass bands will dress in traditional German Octoberfest costume. Adding to the action Saturday will be Halloween Spooktacular at the Children’s Museum of the Valley from noon until 5 p.m. Trick-or-treating, games and activities and a live bat presentation will be included. Children ages 2 to 12 are invited to come wearing their costumes. Free parking is available in the USA Parking garage across from the museum. The Children’s Museum is located at 139 E. Boardman St. Admission is free to both Octoberfest and Halloween Spooktacular.

We had a great week here at Accent Media, we had 2 new clients we brought on board, and I hired a new Sales and Marketing Assistant. We are all looking forward to the weekend. We have tickets to go to YSU's Saturday game against Southern Utah, Chip's band has a gig, and a fun time should be had by all..................Scott
