(During Turn Your Screen Off Week)
On May 4th, as part of the Turn Your Screen Off Week and The Great Granville Garage Sale, the GRD will be holding a sports equipment swap! The GRD is looking for donations of gently used sports equipment (like bats, lacrosse sticks, baseball pants, face masks, cleats, roller blades, ice skates, ski equipment, and anything else recreation related). We will not be accepting helmets. Each donated item will get you a ticket that will allow you to swap your donated item for something else on May 4th on the lawn of the Robbins Hunter Museum. If you don’t have an item to swap that is fine, for a nominal charge you will be able to purchase any item. All proceeds will benefit the Grace Dils Scholarship Fund.
We will have these designated Sport Equipment drop off days:
• April 27th – at the Ballpark Opening Day Ceremonies (Raccoon Valley Park), 9:00AM-NOON
• May 1st – at the GHS & GMS entrances to the school, 7:30-8:00AM
• May 1st – at the GIS & GES entrances to the school, 8:30-9:00AM
• We also have drop off boxes located outside of the Village Offices & Granville Public Library
• We also will take items on the day of the swap, from 9-10AM, May 4th at our table on the lawn of the Robbins Hunter Museum
• Or call the GRD office at 587-1976 to schedule a drop off of equipment

The GES 3rd grade chess team of Dylan Gibson, Ross Winters, Ethan Schell and George Turner finished second place in the 3rd grade unrated section of the Queen City Classic, which took place March 30th. The Queen City Classic is a chess tournament which takes place in Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati. The Queen City Classic is also one of the largest scholastic chess tournaments in the state of Ohio. What makes their accomplishment even more impressive is that although the top four scores counted for the team, these boys were facing teams with many more players, and yet they persevered. They have shown themselves to be incredibly skilled chess players, and more importantly have shown a resolute commitment to the game. They experienced the ups and downs of a chess tournament, winning some incredibly good games in order to accomplish this amazing feat. It can truly be said that they have made Granville proud with their accomplishments. At all times they represented Granville very well and hopefully made a few friends along the way. These boys we have no doubt will grow up into very bright young men, and will hopefully continue their very promising chess careers. We are incredibly proud of the accomplishments of these boys, and hope that they will continue to represent Granville in such a positive light in the future.
