Happy Summer Ohio Region Patrollers!

We hope you've had a fun and safe summer. Summer kicks off the new season for us and we have a lot of great things happening in the region. While we haven't been able to gather on a region level, this coming season looks a little brighter for having events and seeing more patrollers face-to-face.

With that, we have some new faces in leadership, open leadership positions for patrollers to step into, events kicking off this fall and the region fall meeting - which will be in person!

As we head into the fall season, continue to check the region website - for information and events throughout our region.

We're looking forward to an exciting season!
