Granville is Open
 
For the past nineteen years I have been a member of the Granville Village Council, for two years I served as the Vice Mayor and for two years I served as the Mayor.
While I was the Mayor the Village purchased the Bryn Du Mansion from the David Longaberger family.  The year after we purchased the property I laid out a number of cross country courses of various distances which have been used for Denison University, Granville High School, Newark Catholic High School and the Granville Summer Cross Country Series. RUNOHIO is a member of the Granville Chamber of Commerce and I wanted to share a recent promo about Granville - http://www.runohio.com/index.php/video/category/35-industry/79-granvilleohio
