If you visit any parks in the City of Lima, OH - Government, you might see this crew from Marimor Industries, Inc.! They trim, blow leaves, pick up trash, clean, and more.

They're part of the reason our parks and playgrounds always look so nice - and we appreciate them. Make sure to say hello if you see them around!
