Comment For The Day

Do not miss out on the activities at the fair and enjoy Labor Day weekend with family and friends. School is back in session so be extra careful while watching out for school buses and children crossing the streets to get to and from school.

Mark the calendar for the mouth-watering corn roast that will take place on Chardon Square on Sept. 8. Jim Rayl and Chardon Kiwanis members will be on hand to serve up the great tasting corn. Proceeds go toward school scholarships.
