Yesterday morning, I stepped out of my apartment and walked to the Sylvania Police Station when I noticed several white tents pitched on Maplewood Avenue.
As a reporter, I was surprised something was going on in Sylvania and I didn’t know about it. It looked like an important event, as trucks pulled up to Treo Restaurant and people dressed in all white busily walked from the tent to the restaurant's entrance.
After a couple of phone calls, I found out that it was the annual fund-raising event, Summer in Paris, which benefits Beach House Family Shelter based in Toledo.
