"Elite Sports and Culture Week will have a significant impact in the Tiffin Community. Exposure to Olympians, Paralympians and coaches will provide unprecedented opportunities to learn and appreciate the core values of the Olympics. I welcome and encourage everyone to participate in this wonderful investment in our community. Surely, the Olympic values on parade in Tiffin and Seneca County will affect the quality of life for all those involved for years to come."

- Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz
