Happy to help. It was lots of fun!

Cool event!

I have been a 'guest bartender' twice at The Barrel Room to raise funds for two organizations. It isRead More a fun, and nerve-racking experience! Well done, Morgan and TJ! Enjoy a successful Rocktoberfest! Props to The Barrel Room for supporting non-profits in a unique way!

Another collection site is the Curves in Plain Township located at 6304 Market Ave. N. We're in theRead More plaza with Samantha's Restaurant.
Morgan Day (Editor) August 29, 2012 at 01:16 pm
I wasn't aware of that, Susan. Thanks for the info! Curves is actually in our Directory, so I'll goRead More ahead and add it to our list of drop-off sites.

Thank you for this. I've shared it on my personal FB page and my SciFact Central pageRead More (http://www.facebook.com/SciFactCentral), and I have gotten a lot of "likes" and maybe a donation or two. Fred Bortz, proud father and grateful husband
Morgan Day (Editor) July 26, 2012 at 05:01 pm
Really glad to hear that, Fred! That's a great son you've got there.

Thanks Morgan. Let's hope he gets to Wooster before the rain does. I looked at your profile, and IRead More agree that the Patch is an interesting approach to journalism, especially is small towns and cities. The only problem I have with that is the loss of freelance money for my book reviews (popular science). I'm down to one regular client, and as a writer, I can't work for free. My reviews are archived on line after they appear in print (http://www.scienceshelf.com). But the world is what it is, and you have taken an interesting path. Good luck!
Morgan Day (Editor) December 29, 2011 at 05:01 pm
I'm sorry about this, Mark. This was posted by a calendar editor who no longer is with Patch. I'llRead More let our current calendar editor know about the problem.

The Rotary Club of Canton no longer meets in downtown Canton, it now meets at Meyer's Lake Ballroom.
Morgan Day (Editor) July 27, 2012 at 02:18 pm
I've changed the address to that of the Myer's Lake Ballroom. Does everything else look OK, Mark?

Love Jill and her feral cat rescue group! They work so diligently and passionately to help animalsRead More every single day and night, and she also has so many sweet kitties that need good loving homes so it is important to remember her organization when you or someone you know would like to adopt a new little kitten or cat. My family and I support her work and organization 100%!

Thank you all and thank you Morgan for doing such a nice job on the article. It is very muchRead More appreciated!!!

Wonderful feature, here is a great article I came across today on tips in helping pets get adoptedRead More faster to share with shelter volunteers: http://blog.adoptapet.com/helping-kennel-canines-stay-calm/#.UAyPuwC6OSw.facebook

Yeah, I see what you mean! I just sent Councilman Cerreta an email to see how you can sign up on theRead More city's website. In the meantime, you could call City Hall to get on the list. I'll let you know when I figure it out, Ken!
Ken Palosi July 13, 2012 at 01:01 am
Thanks Morgan. You're the best! I didn't mean to bother you. I thought they would have had a largeRead More amount of volunteers and one of them might respond.
Morgan Day (Editor) July 13, 2012 at 03:19 pm
Not a problem, Ken. I actually just heard back from City Administrator Mike Grimes and he saysRead More they've made it clearer on the city's site. You can send an e-mail using their “contact” feature, which they made a link to on the home page.

The Canton Concert Band, under the direction of Chris Hall, will be performing in the parking lotRead More behind the Community Christian Church on Main Street that evening. The concert begins at 8:00 and will continue up until the Fireworks. The program consists of marches, show-tunes, and patriotic songs, among others. The program is free, just bring your own chair! More information about the band can be found at www.cantonconcertband.org.

The North Canton Jaycess will also have live music leading up to their fireworks at the Morrh CantonRead More Jaycees and Suarez Corporation Indistries Celebration in the Park. There will also be games for the kids, and food vendors as well, so come to the 2012 North Canton Jaycees Celebration in the Park for the best, uninstructed view of the fireworks!

Thanks for the great info, Jamie!

ML and Gary are AMAZING people! It's great to see them getting some recognition for all theirRead More generous work in the community! Congrats on the well-deserved article!
Marlene Daniels June 22, 2012 at 07:04 pm
I have known Gary and Mary Lynne for many years and can verify Mary Lynne's sentiments. Gary isRead More very caring ... to animals, to his daughter, to his friends and, of course, his family. He and Mary Lynne were instrumental in us getting a Golden Retriever because of their love for the ones they have rescued. We've never been sorry! Gary and Mary Lynne are wonderfully kind and caring people and certainly deserve any and all accolades they receive. Congratulations to Gary, Mary Lynne and Ava ... Marlene Daniels
Heidi Cressman June 25, 2012 at 05:39 pm
What is written here does not even scratch the surface. Mary and Gary are both wonderful people whoRead More both deserve recognition for the good life they lead in helping those less fortunate than themselves. They rescued our wonderful dog "Murphy". It is because of them that such a beautiful dog has brought our family such joy! Congratulations to Gary for this special honor!
Kristina Bunnell June 21, 2012 at 12:56 pm
This would be so great!

I think this has just got to be the "very best" idea yet! Thanks to The Rotary Club forRead More initiating this phenominal effort.
Patricia Davis June 21, 2012 at 02:14 pm
Hopefully someone will be able to contact whoever the owner is of the adjacent parking lot so thatRead More it can be used for activities at Bitzer Park. We have a great monument there. Do you know how HARD it is to take an elderly person there to let them look at the plaques of their loved ones. You can't stop on Main or East Maple to let them out of your car. You must park at the Y and have them walk to the monuments and bricks that have their loved ones names on them. Not an easy task when they are in their 80s and not able to walk that far!

I am a recipient of this Doc's excellent care. Met Tim at a Wounded Warrior benefit, I was aRead More volunteer, but a wounded warrior from the Veitnam era and have aleways had a back problem from a booby trap I met. The pain come and goes, but had been with me for several years without let up. After he worked on me it was gone and has stayed gone now for several months (we met in April of this year). He has been very helpful in so many ways pertaining to my body and how if functions. He is a unique individual and I plan to see him some with my problems from 34 years of naval service of which the last 30 were as a Navy Seal team member. I'm in NC and he is in Ohio, I walk there if I have to, he is just that good. H. Davis, USN(Ret)

I am sooooo proud of these students for their achievements in this wonderful cause. I am alsoRead More pleased to read of the teachers participation. I'm sure a lot of work was done on "their own time". And most of all to the parents who are raising their children to be aware of the needs of others. Many thanks to all of you for doing this.

Sandy, it was great meeting your class. They all had such thoughtful answers to the questions askedRead More by me and Julie Mathie-Cross from Our Town. They should be very proud of themselves!
