Editorial: Event Center fulfilling a community need
Efforts by city leaders to build the Worthington Event Center have clearly paid off.
For instance, the Event Center recently hosted the Daily Globe’s Bridal Show and Prom Extravaganza, and the event’s attendance was excellent (perhaps as a result of the new venue). It was home to an evening of comedy on Valentine’s Day, drawing a significant crowd. It was the site of the annual Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce annual meeting and dinner last month, as well as a first-ever New Year’s Eve celebration. On the horizon is a Farm and Home Show scheduled for this Friday through Sunday.
If these sorts of larger-scale happenings aren’t enough, Event Center manager Jackie Tentinger has said the facility is booked solid this summer for wedding receptions. In fact, the Event Center is capable of hosting a variety of festivities — and it’s here for all of us. That makes it a valuable community amenity.
