Akron mayor to be feted for 40 years of public service

By Stephanie Warsmith Published: February 28, 2014

Akron Mayor Don Plusquellic is being feted for his 40 years of public service, first as a councilman and then as the city's longest-serving mayor.

Two downtown venues will sponsor community "meet and greet" events to honor Plusquellic on Saturday, March 15.

From 10 to 11:30 a.m., prior to downtown Akron's Ancient Order of the Hibernians St. Patrick's Day Parade, the Civic Theatre is inviting the public to meet the mayor and take a photo with him. Cookies and punch, entertainment and free or discounted tickets to Plusquellic's favorite places to take his grandchildren will be provided.

From 1 to 3 p.m., following the parade, the festivities will resume at Canal Park, where Plusquellic will again greet people, take photos and give out discount tickets to popular destinations. Those who attend can see the renovations happening at Canal Park, home of the RubberDucks AAA baseball team.

These free public meet and greets will follow a more formal event from 6 to 8 p.m. today at Greystone Hall.
