Bay Village turns out in support of young girl

As we've seen time and again, our amazing Bay Village community bands together when one of us is in need. That spirit was on full display Aug. 4 for “The Mile for Molly” fundraiser at Bradley Road Park. Hoping for a crowd of 50 people, we instead had nearly 400 walkers come out to enjoy the beautiful summer evening, walk the Mile for Molly, indulge in some pizza and win some great prizes! I could say that we were surprised by the turnout, but with a community like ours, what else should I expect?

We were blessed with the appearance of a special guest, Miss Molly herself! As per usual, Molly was the added sunshine to an already beautiful day. Her small but mighty 7-year-old self has been fighting Acute Lymphatic Leukemia since the end of June. The strength of her family, the doctors and staff at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital, much anonymous assistance and many selfless people, including the organization Little Heroes, have helped immensely.

Life in tune with the church bells

A parishioner reflects on faith and family as St. Raphael's begins a new chapter

When I was 2 years old, my parents made the great migration from the east side of Cleveland to the west side of Cleveland. They bought a home across the street from the church. My father’s explanation for his choice: “So ‘you people’ won’t be late for church.” All his life, he called my mom, my brothers and me “you people.” Were we some distant nomadic tribe that he just happened to stumble on his youth? I never knew.

Life began in our new residence, centered around our church. My dad became an usher; my mom became the director of all the church’s Sunday evening potluck theatre productions, and coach of the football cheerleading squad. Our summer vacations centered around the annual weeklong carnival, where each one of us volunteered.

Snippets of Bay Village History: The Berry Pickers

Berry picking wasn't all hard work. In this photo from the Wischmeyer collection, three men from the Village had a little fun posing as female pickers.

Most everyone in Dover Township had a berry patch. Acres of berries and fruit orchards became prevalent with the coming of our German settlers in the 1850s. Apple, peach and cherry orchards sprang up along Walker, Bassett and Bradley roads, where our German farmers settled. Most of the family homes scattered between the farms had small berry patches in their backyards. Well into the 1950s there were berry patches in the Village.

My family's house was in the David Foote apple orchard on Lake Road. We had eight different kinds of apple trees, plus peach trees and cherry trees on our acre. We had gooseberries, currants, quince, strawberries and raspberries in the yard. I remember Mom making jelly, especially currant jelly, and putting the small glass jars out in the backyard under a glass window to cook in the sun. She made many jars of strawberry and raspberry jam from our berries, pouring liquid beeswax on top to seal the jar.

Westlake says 'play ball'

Indians mascot Slider joined more than 50 kids at Clague Park on Aug. 8 for a morning of hitting, catching and running the bases as part of MLB's Play Ball initiative.

On Saturday, Aug. 8, more than 50 kindergarten and pre-K children came to Clague Park to play ball on a beautiful summer day as the city of Westlake hosted Major League Baseball's Play Ball initiative. Children had the opportunity to run the bases, hit off a tee and field ground balls. 

As an added bonus, Slider, the mascot of the hometown Cleveland Indians, made an appearance to help the children learn the game of baseball. Slider even picked up a bat, ran the bases and offered tips as only a mascot can.

Is This Your Dog? Did You Steal My Bike?

Dillon Forsythe comforts the dog he found near Cahoon Creek. After taking her to the vet and groomer, Dillon is searching for the dog's owner.

My name is Dillon. You may remember me from my previous articles about saving Peanut the dog three years ago. Incredibly, I am back now with another dog story.

Monday evening, Aug. 3, I read a post on a Facebook page that a lost dog was running past the Bayway Cabin, (Kiddie Kollege), and fell 50-feet down a nearby cliff! After reading this, I got on my bike to try and find her. I was going to look where she was last seen by the cabin and walk up the creek from there, but the Lord was pulling me in a different direction. 

I ended up at the bottom of the Cahoon Park sledding hill. Because I was in such a rush, I got off my bike and threw it behind a large bush. I leaped over the creek, and was going to continue alongside it, but again, God led me to hike up the other side of the cliff. At the top, I turned to my left, and within an instant, I saw the dog.

Back-to-school shopping ads, Cleveland Browns Training Camp, and the final Patio Party at the Westlake Center for Community Services are signs that summer is winding down.

Shared memories of family vacations

The beauty of the Colorado landscape is a lasting memory from a family vacation. The agony of the hike is another. Photo by RJ Johnson

Vacation is a great time to create family memories. This year we decided to take a hiking vacation in Granby, Colorado. Each day had its own hiking adventure. Because I grew up in Colorado, I knew how to vary our hikes so every hike had its own unique flavor.

The first couple of days consisted of short, relatively flat hikes while our bodies became acclimated to the thinner air at high altitude. The third day was the forced march.

The hike started at a trailhead at about 8,300 feet above sea level. The guidebooks all said the first mile was challenging. Over the first mile we gained 1,000 feet of elevation. This would be like getting on a treadmill and setting it at the highest incline, then putting rocks on the belt at random intervals. To complete the experience you would need to pump air out of the room, and continue pumping the air out as you ascended. Challenging might have been an understatement. “Lung burner” would have been a better description.

Unity programs help children 'unfold'

Our children are the future. The other half of the equation is the grown-up part, as adults, as parents and guardians, WE are the future as we guide, educate, vote, and make choices that will create what's ahead for our children with every word we utter, with every decision we make, with every law we consider and vote for or against. 

Myrtle Fillmore (1845-1931), co-founder of the Unity Movement wrote, “Our mission is not to entertain children, but to call them out. To be always entertained is to be dwarfed and dependent. To be 'called out' is to follow the harmonious law of the soul's unfoldment."

Reflecting on the Bay Village Foundation

Play in Bay project team leader Connie Dieken is pictured with her kids, Spencer, age 6 at the time, and Ali, 3, at the opening of the playground on Dover Center Road 20 years ago. Photo courtesy Connie Dieken

This past May I stepped down as president of the Bay Village Foundation after serving for 9 years. What will I do with the gift of time now available to me? Look no further, I found that there is a reservoir of information in my head, in my files and on my computer that I wish to share.

I had a box of files that came with the job so I began organizing them.The first thing that I came across caught my attention: a blue binder, with the beginning notes and minutes of how the foundation came to be. Here in these notes of 20 years ago, we see a fledgling organization called The Future of Bay. 

Back then Council President Dick Martin suggested a special fund to hold contributions for two groups that were raising funds that for Play in Bay and the addition to the Youth Center. As I looked at the notes of then-secretary, Bonnie Hunt, I saw how the vision of Dick Martin flowed through the work of Bonnie into the action of Gary Ebert, Tom Jelepis and Wayne Reese.

Chamber members enjoy a day on the links

The golfers line up and get ready to go!

Avon Oaks Country Club was the venue for this year's West Shore/Fairview Park Chamber golf tournament on Aug. 10. This joint effort between both chambers raised money for the scholarship funds for Westlake, Bay and Fairview Park school districts. 

Thirty foursomes began their scramble with a shotgun start and a delicious box lunch. Throughout the course there were various local sponsors who offered treats, snacks and even a massage from their sponsorship holes. There was no lucky hole-in-one winner this time to take home the new car prize. A brief rainstorm midday brought out the umbrellas but also cut the humidity. 

The day ended with a wonderful dinner and many great prizes that went out to some lucky golfers! Grand prizes were a flat screen television, a Kindle and $1,000 cash. Many other prizes went out from the generous donations of chamber businesses.
