Lomond Ice Cream Social 2018 – a very cool event.

You couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day for the 2018 Ice Cream Social.  Seems we were all kids again – enjoying time with family and neighbors.  The DJ kept the party going, while we enjoyed face painting, lawn games, the Fire Safety and visits from the police and fire department.

Public Safety and Community Policing Forum bring together city leaders and community residents.

The Public Safety Forum, held June 14, was a powerful event.  About 40 people gathered at the Stephanie Tubbs Jones Community Building to hear Chief DeMuth, ask questions and have face-to-face conversations about their issues and concerns.

Chief DeMuth and Lt. Rowe covered a wide array of topics: Shaker’s Guardian approach to policing, the new Bike Patrol, car break-ins and noise, speeders, safety in our public space, plans for policing the new Van Aken District, and more.  Perhaps most valuable were the one-on-one conversations afterwards when relationships were built and partnerships for working together.  Thanks to all who attended, and especially Chief DeMuth; Lt. Rowe; our Q&A moderator, Councilperson Julianna Senturia; and Rec Department Director, Alexandria Nichols, who shared info on Thornton Park.


2018 Neighborhood Clean Up is in the (trash) bag!

A small but mighty contingent of Clean-Up volunteers helped make Lomond (MORE!) Beautiful on Saturday. About 20 neighbors tidied up about 70% of the Lomond’s streets, from Lindholm to Lynnfield, Scottsdale to Chagrin. Interesting factoid — there was much less litter to pick up this year. So I guess we ALL deserve a pat on the back. And special thanks to Mayor David Weiss for stopping by to help.

Egg Hunt March 24, 10:30 Gridley Triangle Park

Don’t miss this great family fun for young ones (and the young at heart).  The Lomond Association is proud to provide funding for this wonderful neighborhood event.
