A dedication to late Bexley Mayor John Brennan will be among the city's celebrations planned for Labor Day.

The Jeffrey Woods and Walkway at the mansion will be dedicated to Brennan, who died of cancer at age 65 in January. The dedication ceremony will begin at 2 p.m., prior to the city's annual Labor Day Block Party on Monday Sept. 3.

In addition to serving as mayor, Brennan was president of Bexley City Council and a former director of the city's Recreation and Parks Department.

The Block Party will be held on the grounds of the Jeffrey Mansion, 165 N. Parkview Ave., from 3 to 7 p.m.

Food will be available for purchase, with Mayor Ben Kessler manning the grill. All other activities are free.

The block party also marks the end of the 2012 pool season. Swimmers can take their final dip until 8 p.m. that night, when the pool will officially close until next year,

The Trash & Treasures sale also will be held inside the Jeffrey Mansion during the block party, with proceeds benefitting the Recreation and Parks' senior citizens programming. Hours are 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Purchases can be made using cash or checks.

While residents are encouraged to walk to the party, the swimming pool parking lot will be open for those who drive, and street parking is available along Clifton and Parkview avenues. The Jeffrey Mansion lot near the tennis courts will not be open.

On Sunday, Sept. 2 the 10th annual Marc Levinson Run/Walk for Lou Gehrig's Disease will step off at the Jeffrey Mansion, 165 N. Parkview Avenue.

The run/walk will honor Levinson, a longtime Bexley resident, and raise funds for research under way at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus.

The run/walk starts at 8:30 a.m. and entry fees are $30. To register, or for more information, visit premierraces.com.
