EODA hosted their Summer Meeting on Friday, August 6th at Clary Gardens in Coshocton, OH. The weather was perfect for an outdoor meeting set up in a recently completed pavilion. The keynote speaker was Lydia Mihalik, Director of the Ohio Department of Development who drew a crowd of 75 attendees to discuss the latest concerns in economic and community development in the state. A tour of the gardens was provided by Jandi Adams, Director of Clary Gardens. Participants had plenty of networking opportunities before the meeting and during lunch catered by McKenna’s Market. Pre-meeting networking was hosted by Mindy Brems, Executive Director of the Coshocton Visitors’ Bureau.
