Stolar family marks three Santa generations
Three generations of Santas are featured in this week’s Christmas celebration of “Throwback Thursday,” submitted by Marci (Stolar) Businger of Rossford.
Her grandfather John Stolar Sr. is pictured, top left, next to a make-shift chimney filled with gift bags of fruit, chips, candy canes and chocolate marshmallow Santas. He handed out the gift bags to children on the corner of Dixie Highway and Eagle Point Road.
“The children in the picture are my sister Val, my brother Jack and myself,” she explained.
Below is her father, John Stolar Jr. who made many visits to Rossford families on Christmas for 50 years. The Santa suit was trimmed in rabbit fur with a beard of yak hair.
At bottom is the newest generation to don the red suit, John “Jack” Stolar III. He is pictured with his great niece, Madilyn Marzec, whose mother Brooke often assists Santa with his visits to area hospitals, veterans organizations and community events.

Rossford lies at the heart of the Crossroads of America, an area experiencing tremendous economic growth, located at the crossroads of Interstate 75 and the Ohio Turnpike. The city's population of approximately 6,000 is primarily a mix of descendants of Polish, Czechoslovakian, German and Ukrainian workers who came from Pennsylvania to work at the glass plant, now Pilkington.
Rossford was incorporated as a village in 1939 and as a city in 1971. The City is a municipal corporation which operates under its own charter and is governed by a mayor and seven-member City Council. Rossford is served by full-time police and part-time fire departments, dispatched from the neighboring Village of Walbridge.
The City maintains a Community Recreation Center and three parks, one of which,Veterans Memorial Park, features a seasonal marina along with picnic areas and diamonds and courts for baseball, tennis, basketball and volleyball.
Rossford has three elementary schools, Glenwood, Indian Hills and Eagle Point, a junior high and high school and All Saints parochial school for grades pre-kindergarten through eight.
The city boasts a public library and many service and community organizations such as the Rossford Business Association, Lions Club and Veterans of Foreign Wars. Its Rossford Community Service League sponsors annual activities such as a Valentine's Day Dance, Easter egg hunt, Halloween, Memorial Day parades and their Christmas tree lighting.
