Pepsi is giving away $1,300,000 in funding to ideas YOU vote on!

Pepsi is giving away $1,300,000 in funding to ideas YOU vote on! Why not help things that matter to You in Our area!? Here are two exciting projects and they could use your help! The top two vote getting projects each win $250,000.00 from Pepsi. 

1st: "A water cleansing "Treatment Train" into Grand Lake St Marys."  
Rank During Post: 17th!
"To fund the purchase and installation of a "treatment train" to be placed in a major lake tributary replicating a natural, cleansing wetland. A treatment train consists of a sediment collector that intercepts nutrient laden silt before it enters the lake; an aeration device that introduces dissolved oxygen into the entire water column; a floating wetland whose roots absorb nutrients suspended in the water and a rock pier that will direct the flow of water through these devices. The goal of the Commission to install a treatment train on every tributary entering the lake thus removing phosphorus and other detrimental nutrients that feed toxic blue green algae. To dredge the mouths of the incoming tributaries creating islands and removing nutrient laden silt already in the lake bottom."

2nd: "Build the first 100% accessible playground in Western Ohio" 
Rank During Post: 11th!
"The New Bremen-New Knoxville Rotary Sunshine Project is in the process of raising funds to build a handicapped/special needs accessible playground at Bremenfest Park in New Bremen.   As a part of the fundraising process, we've been approved eligible for a $250,000.00 Pepsi Refresh Grant."

With a record of 21-5, the Bulldogs are looking towards regional semifinals on Wednesday, Nov 3, where they face Padua Franciscan (17-7) at 6 o’clock. A spirit bus may be taken to Ontario, OH for Wednesday. On Saturday, the Dogs faced Pemberville Eastwood. The match was very intense. Celina started off weak in the first game, losing a close game with a score of 24-26. The second time around Celina came fired up and ready to bounce back as they took the game, 28-26. Their intensity kept them in the third game, winning 25-19. The fourth game though, Eastwood shot back winning 22-25. The Bulldogs and the Eagles were fighting for the district final champs as it came down to a fifth game. The Dogs started off strong, taking a huge lead at the beginning which fired the Bulldogs up. Ending the game, 15-10, the Celina Bulldogs came home with being district final champs for the 5th time in a row. The Celina Bulldogs volleyball team has done a great job this year.
