13abc News Chief Meteorologists Visits
Josina Lott at River Crossings
Residents and staff were very excited to welcome 13abc Action News Chief Meteorologist Jay Berschback to River Crossings on Wednesday June 10th!
Jay did so much more than just talk weather safety with residents. He shared insights into his job as a television meteorologist, explaining he has many roles as a meteorologist including part scientist, part artist, and part performer. He then demonstrated some of the real tools of his trade – a barometer, anemometer, digital rain gauge – tools that he relies on every day to give us an accurate weather forecast. And finally, Jay did speak about how we can all stay safe during weather warnings and watches.
Our sincere appreciation to Jay Berschback and the 13abc family for spending time with us this afternoon and creating a wonderful early summer memory for the individuals we serve!

Josina Lott Seeking Volunteer to Revive Sensory Garden
Do you know a master gardener, hobbyist, student, or scout looking for an outdoor project?
We have the project for you!
What once was a beautiful sensory garden on the Josina Lott campus created for residents by a Boy Scout for his Eagle Badge project has come under disrepair and is in need of some TLC. We will provide the materials needed for the revitalization project - we just need someone with a green thumb or creative spirit to take on this project and bring our sensory garden back to life!
A sensory garden provides residents individual and combined sensory opportunities that they don't typically experience. For example, a sensory garden may contain plants of varying textures that residents may touch and feel, scented and/or edible plants, water features, sculpted bushes and more. Any landscaping feature that stimulates one of the five senses is ideal for a sensory garden.
Most of the infrastructure that originally comprised our sensory garden is still intact; we just needs a caring, attentive volunteer to freshen up the area with new plants, troubleshoot the lighting and water features, and generally add a fresh perspective to the area.
If you or someone you know is interested in a fun summer project, please contact James at 419 866 9013 ext 109 or firstname.lastname@example.org
After the invitation from Boyk Law Offices, Josina Lott teamed up with the art therapy students at Lourdes University to create a Toledo skyline mural on the wall in a common area of Boyk Law Offices. Take a moment to enjoy the timeline video!
