Final Our Story focus group meets Wed.

VW independent/submitted information

Van Wert County residents are highly encouraged to attend the last Our Story project focus group at 7 p.m. Wednesday, February 28, in the Ohio State University Extension meeting room of the Administration Building at the Van Wert County Fairgrounds.

The focus group is the most critical step in the project, as it helps create a clear and guiding picture for the future of talent attraction and retention marketing efforts for Van Wert County. Developed by the 2018 Van Wert Leadership Class, sponsored by the Van Wert Area Chamber of Commerce, the project aims to provide community leaders and business owners with vital information. The class encourages everyone in the community to attend to have their voice heard.

For those unable to attend the focus group, an online survey is still available through the 28th as well and can be found at

The information collected from both the focus group and the online survey will be used to formulate a master narrative of the county.

For more information about the focus group or survey, email
