Handle With Care Week in Seneca County will be May 7-13.

The kickoff event will be a free Handle With Care community kickball game to include first-responders, school personnel and youth. The game is set for May 7 at Meadowbrook Park in Bascom. Activities, including  food for purchase from Not Your Mama’s Grilled Cheese food truck, will begin at 1 p.m. The game will start at 2 p.m.

Some seating will be available, and attendees are encouraged to bring chairs.

A ceremony will kick-off the game, and Adrea Schindler, 7, will be honored for her winning Handle With Care T-shirt design.

Proceeds from The Tiffin Crawl, under the leadership of Steve and Kathee Bruno, are helping to make the game possible.
