Summer in the City Events

Summer in the City is designed to help interns build networks and showcase what life would be like if they called Toledo their hometown.

   

In 2015, participants had the opportunity to:

  • Catch a Mud Hens games at Fifth Third Field
  • Taste craft beer and wine at Veritas Cork & Craft
  • Explore downtown Toledo during the EPIC T-Town Dash Scavenger Hunt
  • Learn about the Metroparks at the historic Stranahan Manor House
  • Experience the nationally renowned Play Time exhibit at the Toledo Museum of Art
  • Take a tour of downtown apartments and lofts
  • Explore the new aquarium at the Toledo Zoo & Aquarium
  • Sip a matcha green tea with Toledo City Councilwoman Sandy Spang at Plate 21

 

The Let’s Do Lunch series provided the chance for the interns to network with employees, tour facilities, and learn about the industries and the economy of the Toledo Region. Hosts included Hickory Farms, Toledo Lucas County Port Authority, First Solar, Healthcare REIT, Toledo Museum of Art and NORTH Design.

In addition, all participants were matched up with an EPIC Toledo member. EPIC Toledo is the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce’s young professional initiative. EPIC, which stands for engaging people, inspiring change, is based on the belief that a region influenced by diverse young professionals is a region that can attract and retain them. These EPIC members live and work in the Toledo Region, so they were great resources for questions about the region.

To celebrate a great summer, send the interns off to school and encourage them to come back (like a boomerang), the Chamber hosted a Boomerang Party on the 8th floor patio of the Edison Building.

Planning for 2016 is underway, and the events will be even better!
