The October Chamber of Commerce meeting has been canceled. We will meet the first Wednesday of November. Have a safe and happy October!
A Haunted Schoolhouse??? For years it has been rumored that the James A Garfield schools are haunted and that after 4 pm the schools come alive. The event committee for the Nelson Garrettsville Community Cupboard didn’t believe the rumor -- in fact they scoffed at the idea. That was until...the sound of jack-in-the-boxes, children’s music, ghostly football players and apparitions began to appear as the NGCC team was preparing for their fundraiser. Could it be the ghost will select someone new to join in the hauntings or can the team save one another before the next deadly deed occurs? Join the cast of Garrettsville Curtains up Theatre for a night of murder, mystery, and sleuthing. Assemble a team for a fun evening at our “whodunit” dinner and show. The doors of the High School Event Entrance will open at 4pm on October 9th for check-in and appetizers. Then you’ll have a chance to solve an expertly crafted murder mystery as you make your way throughout the Garfield campus. After gathering your clues, the mystery will come to a close as you enjoy a delicious buffet-style dinner at the elementary school. In addition, a 50/50 raffle and Chinese auction will be held. Tickets for this event are limited to 150 -- pricing is $30/person or $50/couple, and can be purchased at ngccportage.org/tickets, Weekly Villager, Garrettsville Family YMCA, or by calling 330-527-2011. Groups of 4 or more, please call for group rates. Please join us on October 9th and see if the NGCC can pull off their event can finish without a body being found.
NGCC is in need of the following items for our clients: Toilet paper Rice sides Noodle sides Potato sides Hamburger helper Tuna helper Dish soap Pancake syrup Kidney beans Pork n beans Tomato soup Donations can be made at the Garrettsville Family YMCA.
