ACE Adopts I-71 northbound by Kings Island

You’ve seen the signs along the highway, “Adopted by ……”, well, we’ll have our name up on a big green sign soon.  As people are coming up I-71 from Cincinnati, ready to turn in to Kings Island, they’ll see our name and maybe think of us as they have their fun.  This does require just a little work though.   Four times a year we need to pick up trash along the highway there.  If everyone does it one time a year, that would be great.  Why do the minimum?  Maybe we’ll do it more.  I need some civic minded people to show up on August 15th at the public pickup loop by the main Kings Island sign at 1:00 for safety training.  If you can come to that, please let me know.  I don’t think we’ll be picking up trash that day, maybe we will.  I’d like to have a highway cleaning event on Saturday, August 28th at 11:00am.  Please let me know if you can help us then.  Thank you in advance for helping ACE get some publicity and for making the highway outside Kings Island attractive and litter free.

Join us for a great two day event in Northern Ohio!!! We start bright and early on Saturday, August 28 at Memphis Kiddie Park in Cleveland. While at Memphis Kiddie Park we’ll be treated to a hot-dog lunch, rides on the beloved Little Dipper, and the first rounds of the Northern Ohio Mini-Golf Championship. Later that day, we move west to Sandusky to enjoy a wonderful evening at Cedar Point. We’ll have a wonderful dinner of chicken, pulled pork, and all the fixins and finish the day with ERT on Maverick. Sunday, August 29 starts with a breakfast and ERT on Millennium Force and Magnum. The event concludes Sunday afternoon with the final rounds of this years Mini-Golf Championship. Your registration gets you admission into both parks, three meals, ERT sessions on three coasters, mini-golf at both parks, and all-you-can-drink wristbands for both days at Cedar Point.
