“Play Ball” Home Opener

Eggshelland Comes To End
Eggshelland will continue through April 5, so for anyone who has never seen this phenomenal sight of 21,630 painted eggs, head on over to the family home of Ron Manolia, who started this tradition more than 50 years ago. He passed away in August and his family decided this year’s “labor of love” would be the last for the event. The home is located in Lyndhurst on Linden Lane near I-271.
Chardon Kiwanis Activities
The regular spouses meeting of Chardon Kiwanis will take place at 6:30 p.m. April 4, at the Chardon Heinen’s. The guest speaker will be Courtney Ross of “Actively Caring for People.” Anyone interested in joining Kiwanis may stop by or email me at
Kiwanis members were busy last Saturday passing out samples of maple cotton candy, which was also for sale in the Log Cabin during the Easter egg hunt on Chardon Square. G-TV did a great job capturing the excitement of the annual ritual with still photos as well as “action film.”
Kiwanis was generous enough to offer five beautiful baskets filled with Easter goodies. Parents and kids were all given free tickets to sign and the drawing took place at noon on Saturday. Everyone had a great time.
Proceeds from Kiwanis maple candy and syrup sales go to worthy causes both locally and internationally. Kiwanis will continue to sell candy on weekends until the Maple Festival as well as throughout the festival running April 25-28.
The Sugar House will also be selling its famous maple stirs and maple production tours are offered at Richards Maple Products at 545 Water St. in Chardon. This famous Chardon family has been in business since 1910.
Lakeland Civic Chorus Concert
Lakeland Community College’s Civic Chorus will present “Those Magnificent Masterworks” under the direction of Chris Robinson on April 14 at 4 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $7 for adults, $6 for seniors and $2 for students.
Call 440-525-7526 for concert information and 440-525-7134 for ticket purchases.
Joe Gall, my friend of over 30 years, passed away a week ago and he will be deeply missed. He owned the laundromat in the Chardon Marc’s Plaza for decades. He was a hard worker, a friend to many and a welcome face to strangers who stopped by to do their laundry.
He will be greatly missed by so many as he was a “landmark” of his own making just like his laundromat. God bless you, Joe, and Godspeed.
Comment For the Day
I enjoyed the 40 days of Lent and the preparation for the celebration of the resurrection of Christ after His crucifixion. I attended services on Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. My church also blessed Easter baskets filled with dinners and special breads at noon on Saturday.
I hope you all were able to spend precious time with your family and dear friends during this holiest of holy weeks for all Christians.
Have a wonderful week.
