National Night Out
National Night Out was a huge success! In spite of the weather, friends and families came from all neighborhoods. Columbus Police Officers were there to chat with neighbors and children and the Mounted Unit was there to show their officers on horseback.

Don Scott Airfield to Modernize with $10 Million Gift
The Ohio State University Airport received a $10 million gift from the Austin E. Knowlton Foundation, with the purpose of enhancing and renovating the education, research, and FBO facilities, including the terminal.

More details on the gift and the airport modernization plans are available on Ohio State’s web site (click here).
Update! The Ohio State University College of Engineering Dean David Williams and John Ehlers discussed the impact of the gift at a Columbus Metropolitan Club luncheon on August 12 (video).
