Occupational Therapy Month - the profession that focuses on life skills

Icon viewers:

For millions of people, the service of occupational therapy is a lifeline. People of all ages receive it to help them participate in the activities of their daily life. Sometimes people need occupational therapy to do things we take for granted, like getting dressed, being productive at school or work, eating unassisted, even socializing.

Occupational therapy doesn't just treat medical conditions, it helps people stay engaged in the activities that give them pleasure or a sense of purpose, despite challenges.


Letter: More details on re-introducing Beavers to Ohio

Icon viewers:

My influence in selecting Bluffton area/Little Riley headwaters as grounds for re-introduction of beavers having now been exposed, I feel comfortable in letting The Icon announce the choice for a northeastern Ohio location, the one quadrant of the state for which a site had not been announced.  


850 items of food collected by Bluffton Boy Scouts

To the community of Bluffton,

On behalf of Troop 256, I would like to thank all the people who donated to the Bluffton Food Pantry during our Scouting for Food event. On March 23rd, scouts put out bags on people’s doors around Bluffton. On March 30th, Scouts collected the bags filled with food. We collected around 120 bags that contained 850 items. If your bag was missed or you did not get a bag, you can call Mike Metzger at 419-235-5654 to still donate. Again, thank you for all the support in this year’s food drive.
