The Lima Mall is the Northerners’ last stop of the night. Following tonight’s event, they’ll feast on Subway and watch the movie Wanted as they head back to Columbus and rest up for tomorrow’s Winter Caravan finale at Polaris Fashion Place in Columbus.
On a sad note, the Reds are losing one of their biggest supporters of the Winter Caravan in Tom Francis of WIMA Radio, shown here with Mr. Redlegs at Saturday night’s Lima Mall stop. Tom moved to Lima in 1958 “for just a couple years” but has been there ever since. He is retiring after 50 years at WIMA. The Reds wish Tom the best in his retirement.
