The September Lorain County Township Association (LCTA) meeting was held at Lorain County Community College (LCCC). Before the meeting closed, LCCC President Dr. Marcia Ballinger presented LCTA President Amy Richards with a beautifully engraved wooden Computer Aided Design (CAD) plaque. The plaque, created by the Manufacturing Engineering Technology (MET) department, meticulously illustrates and identifies all Lorain County townships in a map format. In addition to the plaque, township officials were given similarly designed key fobs of their own townships. The LCTA extends thanks to Dr. Ballinger and the college’s MET department for the wonderful gifts.
