From the desk of Mayor Bill Cervenik
The beautiful colors of the fall foliage are to be vibrant this year due to the rain fall we had in the early summer along with the sunny days and cool nights in September. One of the best ways you can enjoy the colors and sights and sounds of nature is by taking a walk through Sims Park or Euclid Creek Reservation, which is part of the Cleveland Metroparks. I also encourage you to take a look at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources website, fallcolor.ohiodnr.gov which gives weekly fall color updates as well as great events throughout Ohio celebrating the season. October is the peak month for fall foliage colors so you don’t want to miss out.
Unfortunately, all too soon the leaves will eventually fall off our trees. When that times comes, typically at the end of October, the City of Euclid will have residential curbside leaf pickup. Please rake your leaves to the tree lawn, not into the street. Of course, you can always bag leaves and put them out with your trash. To see where the leaf collection crews are working, call the Service Garage at 216-289-2800 or check the homepage of our website at www.cityofeuclid.com.
The CE Orr Ice Arena is now open. The arena offers open public skating sessions, figure skating and hockey lessons as well as other activities and monthly special events. For more information call 216-289-8649 or go to www.cityofeuclid.com/recreation/WhatsHappeningNow
God Bless and let us all be thankful for what we have.
