Habitat for Humanity Commissioners Meeting
While the Geauga County Commissioners will meet in regular session beginning at 10 a.m. in chambers on Sept. 12, the board will recess from the meeting and reconvene at 7 p.m. in Building #8 for a presentation by Betty Kimbrew, Geauga County Habitat for Humanity executive director.
The Chardon community and all Geauga County residents are encouraged to take part in this important, informative meeting.
Chardon Kiwanis
Congratulations go out to all the Chardon Kiwanis members and CCTA members who showed up to volunteer at the very successful Corn Roast held on Chardon Square on Sept. 8. After the corn was boiled and shucked, hungry patrons stood in line to dip the hot corn in melted butter or garlic butter to satisfy their palate. Hot dogs were also grilled and ice cold sodas and water hit the spot as well. Sage’s Apples donated free apples that were handed to everyone.
All of the proceeds benefit the Kiwanis Scholarship fund and other area projects.
Kiwanis members will meet at Big Creek Park on Sept. 12 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss future volunteer endeavors.
Heritage Club Meeting
The Heritage Club of Northeast Ohio will meet at 7 p.m. Sept. 12 at the Stadium Grill, 8330 Tyler Blvd., Mentor. Congressman David Joyce will answer questions from the audience. The event is open to the public.
Citizens Forum on NEOSCC
Chardonites and all tri-county residents are invited to a free forum to inform everyone about the VibrantNEO 2040 initiative, a federal program funded by the HUD Regionalism Grant Program and the four Northeast Ohio metropolitan planning organizations.
Speakers include: Judge Tim Grendell; state Rep. Matt Lynch; Hudson City Council member Alex Keleman; Brenda Mack, president of the Ohio Black Republicans Association; Skip Claypool, president of the Geauga County Tea Party; and Kim Laurie, president of the Mentor 9-12 Project.
The event will take place Sept. 14 from 1-3 p.m. at the Cuyahoga Community College Performing Arts Theatre located at 4250 Richmond Road in Highland Heights. The public is encouraged to attend.
Zver Family Pasta Dinner
An all-you-can-eat pasta dinner will take place Sept. 16 at the Stadium Bar and Grill, 8330 Tyler Blvd. in Mentor to benefit Chardonite Laura Zver and her family to support lung cancer awareness. Dinners will be served from 5-9 p.m. and include delicious pasta, bread and salad. There are no take outs and beverages are extra.
The cost is $10 for adults and $7 for children. A 50/50 raffle will also be held.
All proceeds will benefit the Laura Zver benefit fund which has been set up at the Huntington Bank. Donations in her name may also be mailed to Huntington National Bank, 540 Water St., Chardon, OH. 44024.
Geauga Co. Historical Society
The Geauga County Historical Society will host Sandy Mueller on Sept. 22 to hear “Memories of Crystal Beach Park, Vermilion, Ohio” at the Auburn Church at the Century Village Museum in Burton. The program begins at 1:30 p.m. Members are free; nonmembers will be charged $5.
Happy Birthday Greetings
Katie Bruening celebrated her birthday on Sept. 9 and she was pleasantly surprised when we sang “Happy Birthday” at Heinen’s where she is employed. Rosemary Fox has worked with Katie in the past and surprised her with a giant pastry gift that was truly mouth-watering.
Best wishes go out to Katie for many great birthdays to come.
Senior Game Winners
Laurie Bevington and Connie Varner were two Chardonites who played on the “Hot Flashes Softball Team,” which took a bronze at the National Senior Games held in the Cleveland area last month.
George Roudebush also did extremely well. I will give you an update later on his track and field competition in Kentucky this past week. I also hope to give you an update on an area couple that ran a triathlon in California on Sept. 7.
Comment For The Day
As everyone prepares for fall weather, the community encountered 90-plus degree weather earlier in the week.
I am sorry to hear of the passing of some very special people in Chardon these past two weeks. It is difficult to lose a sibling, a husband, a wife or a daughter and many of us in Chardon express their deepest sympathies to these caring and loving families.
