Red White and Blue Half Marathon... @ Riverbend Park
Oct 5 @ 8:30 am – 12:00 pm
Back in February of 2010, the U.S. Marines approached the Findlay Family YMCA about co-hosting a marathon in Findlay, Ohio to help give back to the community. This year’s race will be a half marathon/10 K. All of the proceeds from the Red White & Blue Half Marathon/10 K will go to support the Findlay YMCA’s Annual Giving Campaign. The YMCA does not turn any individual or family away due to the inability to pay. Scholarships are made possible for membership and/or programs through our Findlay YMCA’s Annual Giving Campaign. This course is the fastest and flattest qualifier for the Boston marathon! Run on quiet, scenic country roads with less than 20 feet of total elevation change for the entire course! The Red White and Blue is Co-Hosted by the Findlay YMCA and the United States Marine Corps. All proceeds benefit the Findlay YMCA’s Annual Giving Campaign.

GRÜBS at Coffee Amici 8:00 pm
GRÜBS at Coffee Amici @ Coffee Amici
Oct 25 @ 8:00 pm
The ukulele might be a little stringed instrument, but the GRÜBS are making a big impact on the folk music scene. The Grande Royale Ükulelists of the Black Swamp consists of four Bowling Green musicians who have as much fun playing together as their band name might suggest. Anne Kidder, Jason Wells-Jensen, Sheri Wells-Jensen and Geoff Howes play a variety of ukuleles and sing everything from folk standards and hymns to rock band covers and original tunes. They also hold workshops and jam sessions for all levels of ukulele interest and ability. The band often can be found at local coffee houses and festivals, and this year it was a featured performer at the annual Mighty Uke Day event in Lansing, Michigan, the “Friday Night by the Tracks” preview party for National Train Day in Toledo, and the Black Swamp Arts Festival in Bowling Green.
