Greetings!

I’m sure that we would all agree that it is a good thing to have last winter behind us..ugh..what a LONG one it was. One thing you can count on is that besides Blossom Time the next SURE sign of spring is the opening of the Farmer’s Market in downtown Chagrin!! Your Hometown Chagrin Falls is pleased to be entering our seventh season of partnering with North Union to bring an award winning market to the village!

Mark your calendars for Sunday, June 1 and come down to town to welcome back the farmers, see the people you have missed all winter, and pick up the best plants, produce, meats, honey, pasta and baked goods! We will continue our popular “chef at the market” with Matt Anderson from Umami Asian Kitchen on June 29, and the team of Dave Apthorpe and Ian Thompson from Radius at South Franklin Circle on July 27 and September 28. These guys do a wonderful job of creating dishes from the best seasonal produce. So do not miss their appearances!!

Your Hometown Chagrin Falls spends many hours throughout the year fundraising in order to pay North Union Farmers Market to manage this quality event in Chagrin. We especially thank our current market sponsors; The Cleveland Clinic Chagrin Falls Family Health Center, Benesch Attorneys at Law, Chagrin Valley Chiropractic & Acupuncture Center, First Federal Lakewood, South Franklin Circle, Harris Realty Company and Peppertree Capital Management for their support!

We hope you appreciate the market, the quality of life that it brings to our village, and the time and effort put forth in fundraising to make it happen!

SusanWhiteSee you at the triangle!

Your HomeTown Chagrin Falls is proud to present the Chagrin Falls Historic Home and Garden Tour. The Walking Tour will take place on Friday, May 30 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Saturday, May 31 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Featured are five select historic homes and gardens, as well as one church all within walking distance of downtown Chagrin Falls. The tour will feature one home on Maple Street, one home plus the United Methodist Church on South Franklin Street, and three homes on East Washington Street highlighting the broad range of historic architecture within the Village of Chagrin Falls.

Earlier homes on the tour include an 1873 practical Italianate style home constructed by Village merchant James M. Gates, who operated his dry goods store on North Franklin Street in Chagrin Falls. Two years later, the local newspaper reported construction of the Italianate Philip Hintz House, who with his father operated a stove and tinware business on the southeast corner of Main and Bell Streets. Queen Anne style houses on the tour include the early Queen Anne home of George and Nellie Huggett constructed in 1889 and a later Queen Anne home constructed by local builders George and William Brewster in 1899. Also included is the house of important Village physician Dr. H. M. Doty, constructed in 1905. A special addition to the Tour this year is the Gothic Revival United Methodist Church built in 1885 by the Methodists, who were among the first settlers to arrive to Chagrin Falls in 1833.

Spend the day and experience the ambiance and style of these homes which are part of the important architectural heritage of the Village. There will be van transportation provided in the Village by The Cleveland Clinic, Hamlet Retirement Community and South Franklin Circle for those who need assistance. The Women’s Committee of the Chagrin Valley Little Theatre is serving its Famous Salad Luncheon Buffet on Friday, May 30 at Chagrin Valley Little Theatre, 40 River Street between 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. For $15 enjoy salads, desserts and beverages.

Flower Urns 2013
Shade Urn at Cuffs
 
Many things … but especially the flowers that bloom in the business district from spring through fall.  Residents and visitors marvel at the display seen in the parks, bump-out gardens in the sidewalks, and the urns at business store fronts. 
 
The planting and gardening is done by 20 volunteers who contributed about 850 hours last summer.  Your Home Town funds the plants that flourish in 52 urns, the Dogwood Valley Garden Club contributes to the cost of the hanging baskets and the Village provides all of the other plant materials. 
 
New last summer was a perennial garden that was planted along the fence at the front of the police station.
 
Ongoing, is the work to beautify the riverbank in Riverside Park with “naturalized gardens.”
 
This year work will begin with clean-up of the gardens day on April 23.  Planting will take place May 15 and 16 in preparation for Blossom Time.  After planting there will be a link from the YHT website that will give plant identification.
 
 
Gardeners Janine Bauman and Anne deConingh are the co-chairs who join me in planning and coordinating the entire program and working in the gardens all summer.  If you are inspired to join the volunteer effort, please contact janine.bauman@att.net.
