Yikes, where does the time go?
With everything we’ve got started around town, the fun stuff — like blog posts — have been hard to squeeze in. So please forgive the drop-off in blog productivity but it’s a direct correlation to the workload that we’re carrying right now.
Here’s a couple of announcements for upcoming events around town that seemed rather blog-worthy — and given my uncertain posting schedule I figure I better get this stuff out while I have a minute.
1) Cuyahoga River Clean Up — Bob Brown, City Water Reclamation Plant Manager, asked for my help to get the word out that the next annual river clean up is set for Saturday, August 27th. Bob reports that they will again be targeting the area upstream of the Crain Ave. Bridge while we still have access to the track hoe at the construction site. Bob’s looking for volunteers to be part of the river clean up team but he notes that this section of the river is more difficult than most, due to the high banks, so volunteers need to be a reasonably sturdy lot and in relatively good physical condition to handle the terrain. The volunteers typically meet on site at 9 am.
2)Free Movie Downtown — There’s something about entertainment out under the stars in the summer that makes drive-ins and venues like Blossom Amphitheater and Kent’s Home Savings Plaza so popular. Lawn chairs, a blanket and a good show make for a great date, and Standing Rock Gallery in downtown Kent is happy to oblige for couples and families alike. Standing Rock has announced their plans to show The Point!, on Friday, August 26th at dusk, on the Home Savings Bank Plaza. If you want to learn more of this much loved fable story, follow this link.
3)Franklin School of Dance Grand Re-Opening — Grab your dancing shoes and bust a move to help the Franklin School of Dance celebrate their grand re-opening (after 75 years!) on 152 N. Water Street in downtown Kent. As part of the reopening the owners will host an open house and class registration event on Saturday, August 20 from 1-5 p.m. at its updated studio. All are welcome to attend. Click here for more details.
