Veterans Memorial Civic & Convention Center

The Purpose of the Veterans Memorial Civic and Convention Center of Lima/Allen County is to commemorate the services of all members and veterans of the armed forces of the United States and permanently recognize those service members from Allen County who made the ultimate sacrifice. As a county agency, the VMCCC also serves as Allen County’s convention facility and center for performing arts, community, civic and patriotic gatherings. The VMCCC is governed by an 11-member Board of Trustees, appointed by the Allen County Commissioners under Ohio Revised Code 345.

The VMCCC is the principal example for Allen County when capacity and capability of hundreds of dedicated, civic-minded and action-oriented private citizens came together over the course of a decade, from the early 1970s to 1984. These individuals—the Silent Giants and Big Thinkers—illustrate the ability to dream and subsequently construct what has become a primary asset to quality of life and economic development.

Monday, November 29, 2021, the city of Lima, Ohiocity swore in a new mayor for the first time in 32 years. Sharetta Smith was elected mayor in the November general election. She will be the 59th mayor in the city of LIma and the first female and African American mayor for the city. Mayor Smith's swearing in service included prayer and gospel music, and when she stood to address the crowed, she gave God the glory for her success. Jennifer Beck brings us some of the action from today's event at the Veterans Memorial Civic and Convention Center of Lima/Allen County
