There are two upcoming events that I’d like to draw your attention to this month. One is a county event and the other is a city event.
The Lake County Fair will be held from Tuesday, August 12th through Sunday, August 17th. The Fair has a long and proud history in Lake County. The Lake County Agricultural Society was established in 1840 and the first County Fair was held in 1850 at a site along Bank Street in Painesville. In 1911 the Fair was moved to its current site.
The Lake County Fair Board, headed by Willoughby resident and businessman Dick Parker, works tirelessly the whole year to provide a great agricultural, educational and entertainment event. There really is something here for everyone.
I hope you take the opportunity to visit the Fair this year; especially if it’s been a few years since you last attended. I know you’ll have a great time. If you want more information you can visit the Fair’s web site at www.lakecountyfair.org.
On Saturday, August 16th the Heart of Willoughby will hold its Last Stop Willoughby celebration in Downtown Willoughby. If you haven’t attended in the past you’ve missed a great time. You can get an idea of the many activities offered by visiting http://heartofwilloughby.com/last-stop-willoughby/ and clicking on the photos for 2013. You can also “like” the Last Stop Willoughby Facebook page.
The Heart of Willoughby is celebrating its 35th Anniversary this year. These hard working folks are responsible for the Saturday Market. Along with being a big part of our downtown during the summer, the proceeds from the market have been used to contribute to Christmas decorations and provide snow removal for the downtown sidewalks. The Last Stop Willoughby celebration is a one day event, including a parade at 2:00pm (kids, bring your bags for candy). I really hope you can attend the event this year. It’s a great time.
Have a great month.

The Fourth of July weekend is here, and many are only thinking of festive gatherings with family and friends not their safety. So here are some things to keep in mind this summer!
WATER AND SWIMMING SAFETY – Weather at the beach, on the lake or at the pool, use safety precautions.
- Supervise young children around the water.
- Always use life jackets and secure personal flotation devices.
- Avoid alcohol while supervising children and before or during swimming, boating, or water skiing.
- Shower before you enter the pool and do not swim if you are sick.
- Be aware of the local weather conditions and forecast, especially watch for thunderstorms.
- Know and obey the posted warnings about beach conditions.
- Pay attention to lifeguards and posted instructions.
- Prevent access to water when pools are not in use.
SUN AND HEAT – Protect yourself against sunburn and heat illness.
- Never leave anyone, including pets, alone in a closed, parked vehicle.
- Apply sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher 30 minutes before going outside.
- Increase your intake of fluids–drink more liquids than your thirst indicates; avoid alcohol and caffeine.
- Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose fitting clothing.
- Be aware of heat exhaustion symptoms: heavy sweating,weakness,dizziness, nausea, clammy skin, pale or flushed complexion, and fast and shallow breathing.
- If present, be sure to move the person to a cooler place; remove or loosen tight clothing; apply cool wet cloths; and give cool water to drink slowly.
- Be aware of hear stroke symptoms–hot, dry skin, hallucinations, chills,throbbing headache, high body temperature, confusion/dizziness and slurred speech.
- If present, be sure to call 911; quickly cool the person in a cool bath or wrap sheets around them; if the victim refuses water, is vomiting or shows decreased level of consciousness, do not give them anything to drink.
Have a Great Summer and Be Safe!
