Vigil for students at River Valley Schools
Governor's Mansion, Parkview and Maryland in Bexley
8:00 p.m., Monday, August 21
Directions in Columbus: Take I-71 to the Broad Street exit. Go east, away from downtown, on Broad Street, past the Franklin Conservatory in Bexley. Turn left on Parkview. The Mansion is on the right side at the corner of Parkview and Maryland.
When school resumes this month, River Valley Middle School and High School students in Marion, Ohio will be forced onto school grounds contaminated with deadly toxic chemicals, unless Governor Bob Taft does something immediately.
If a tornado roared through Marion and destroyed the River Valley Middle and High Schools, the state government would show up within hours to find a safe place for the children to learn. The River Valley Schools are just as uninhabitable, and the state government has spent years dragging its feet.
Join us to let Governor Taft know the people of Ohio care about these students and want him to close the schools and reassign the students to other schools immediately.
