LACE UP FOR KIDS PROVIDING NEW SHOES FOR THE CHILDREN OF ATHENS COUNTY

ATHENS-  In preparation for the upcoming school year, Athens Wendy’s restaurants, Athens
County Children Services, and Power 105-WXTQ- FM are excited to begin the 20th annual Lace Up for
Kids; a back to school program dedicated to sending area children back to school with new gym shoes.
As a result of Lace Up for Kids, it is expected that 300 Athens County children will be ready to take on a
new academic school year with a new pair of shoes.


The local Athens Wendy’s restaurants, Athens County Children Services, and Power 105-WXTQ- FM are
asking the Athens County community members to support this project by purchasing a pair of new
tennis shoes, child or adult sized, and dropping them off at the Wendy’s locations on Richland Ave, or
East State St., Power 105 on Columbus Rd in Athens or LCR Realty, 280 East State Street, Athens. 

Applications for families to receive shoes for the upcoming school year will be available through Athens
County Children Services caseworkers and school outreach workers. If people seeking application do not
know their school outreach worker, and do not have a caseworker, they may call 740-592- 3061 to get
added to a waiting list. Children must be between the ages of 5 and 14, and families must be residents
of Athens County to qualify. Families who would like more information may call Athens County Children
Services.

 

  • The shoes will be collected through August 8th and will be distributed to the families on August 15th at The Plains Elementary School.
  • Monetary contributions may be sent to: Lace Up For Kids, C/O Wendy’s, P.O. Box 320 Athens, Ohio 45701.


Athens County Children Services is focused on its mission of protecting children, strengthening families,
and securing futures. For more information, please visit our website at

April 1, 2016, Athens, OH: Larry Conrath Realty is making an exciting change. Starting April 1, we are shortening our business name to LCR Realty, and updating our brand to be more professional and up to date.

It was time for a fresh face for the agency, as well as changes that make it easier and better for our clients We also like the fact that our initials, LCR, will represent our core services: Land, Commercial, and of course our long-time signature area of expertise—Residential. For a long time, people have referred to us as LCR, and now our name reflects that. They also look back on our history as Larry Conrath Realty.

We have fresh yard signs, which are everywhere throughout our region, so you will get an immediate opportunity to see the difference. 

Our new Web site is fresh and easy to navigate. We're making it easier to search our listings, connect with us through our chat features or sign up to get daily updates from your favorite LCR Realty agent. And that is just the beginning. As we travel through this transition, we will be making improvements regularly, in response to what our clients are telling us matter most.

Also, people can get to our social media with a click or find out important news quickly. We will keep you up to date on happenings within our agency and with things that affect you as a buyer or seller.

Our web address and e-mails will be shorter—a small thing, but anytime you can deal with fewer keystrokes, you get where you’re going faster. Our new URL is www.LCRrealty.com.  Check our agent sites for their new e-mail addresses. (You’ll still be able to reach them at their old addresses until everyone gets used to the new order.) 

What stays the same?: 
  • Our more than four decades of experience at real estate, and our professional approach
  • Our full time agents with stunning resumes
  • Our iconic art deco building at 280 E. State St in Athens
  • Our phone number – 740-592-3015, where you will always reach an agent during business hours
  • In-depth, sophisticated services that go way beyond the standard real – estate model.
  • Our THING!

With any questions, please feel free to call the agent of your choice, or reach us at info@LCRrealty.com or 740-592-3015 and we’ll connect you with exactly who or what you need.
