Can you believe we are already entering into our second month of summer? We celebrated our first movie night at Bronger’s Park, thanks to our police and fire associations who sponsored the event.

Our next movie night will be on Aug. 17, courtesy of the Hinckley Police Association and Mike and Connie Meadows of First Day School Supplies.

The township is also hosting its first Independence Day Parade on Thursday, July 4, at 9 a.m. The parade will begin at town hall and proceed to Hinckley Prepatory Academy for snacks and a bounce house, along with other fun activities. Thanks to Hinckley Prepatory Academy and Chick-Fil-A for co-sponsoring this event. There will be complimentary Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, cookies and hot dogs.

We are encouraging any and all to decorate your bikes, golf carts, four-wheelers and tractors and join us in celebrating our nation’s birth.

For those who want to run a business from home, HOME occupations are allowed in residential areas, but restrictions found in the township’s zoning regulations limit the activity so as to not disrupt the character of the neighborhood.

There are two types of businesses allowed – home-based and on-site – and each have different requirements. If you are considering a home occupation, be sure to contact the township zoning inspector at 330-278-4181 to understand what the zoning regulations are and what it may mean for you.

For those who may be visiting their loved ones at either Maple Hill or Ridge cemeteries, you will find new smooth pavement throughout, replacing the bumpy and cracked pavement from over the years.

Construction on the east wall of the old fire station continues to progress on time with completion expected by the end of summer. We look forward to celebrating many community events in this renovated area soon.

Happy Birthday America!
