Sylvania Townshp’s admnistration building, its police headquarters and all fire stations will be adorned with a teal bow through the month of September to demonstrate the township’s support of national Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
Gini Steinke, executive director of the local Ovarian Cancer Connection, said she’s grateful for the township’s permission to
display the bows on township buildings.
‘We want to raise awareness of this deadly disease,” she said, “and having our bows on all the township buildings will
certainly increase our visibility.”
The bows will be made from long teal ribbons tied tightly to columns or other building segments. The fabric will likely tail down from the bows and achieve an attractive appearance, Ms. Steinke said.
Volunteers from her organization will attach the bows, be responsible for that attractive appearance and then remove them at the end of the month.
John Jennewine, chairman of the Sylvania Township trustees, said he is pleased that the township will take a role in the awareness effort.
“It’s obviously an important health issue and we’re happy to be able to provide them with support in their effort to get the word
out,” he said.
