This month our activities benefit the Blue Star Mothers: We are mothers, stepmothers, grandmothers, foster mothers and female legal guardians who have children serving in the military, guard or reserves, or children who are veterans. We support each other and our children while promoting patriotism. Our organization focuses on our mission every single day and will never, ever, forsake our troops, our veterans or the families of our Fallen Heroes.

Thank you to COhatch for their continued support of The Old Worthington Partnership.




Each month on the first Wednesday from 5:00-8:00 p.m.

On the first Wednesday of each month Worthington will be alive with activity. Shops will stay open late, and there will be live entertainment on Dewey’s plaza. Local lifestyle and coworking company, COhatch, will sponsor and participate in the series.

COhatch will organize a different monthly service opportunity for the community. Each month brings a new theme and a new community involvement opportunity. Activities will take place either at one of COhatch’s two Worthington locations or in its mobile workplace trailer, Mobi.

The merchants in Old Worthington will program their own specials during these monthly events, and each 1st Wednesday will be designated a DORA event. Alcoholic beverages that are available to be purchased in to-go cups at one of the seven establishments in the district so guests can explore the shops and activities.
