Copley Heritage Day fun not dampened by rain
Shown at bottom is Jessica Bender, of Copley, serving an ear of roasted corn to Hank Pavkov, of Wadsworth. Bender is the daughter of Kim and Mark Bender, owner of Bender’s Farm, one of the Heritage Day vendors at Copley Circle.
Shown at top is Donna Raymond, of Barberton, and her friend, Debbie Rudulph, of Virginia, on a sidewalk at Copley Circle, visited with food vendors, crafters and local businesses who set up booths on the Circle.
Newlyweds Pete and Danielle (Kinney) Valentine stopped by the celebration on their way from Grace Church, where they were married, to their backyard reception in Copley. The couple had photographs taken with a Copley fire truck, shown at right top, and had their first dance in the gazebo at Copley Circle. The new Mr. and Mrs. Valentine will live in Copley.
The Heritage Day Kids’ Zone at CFMS was home to a number of free activities for children, including soccer and tennis activities hosted by the Copley-Fairlawn Athletic Association. Shown at right bottom, from left, Paige Brenner, 13, of Copley; Morgan Mirman, 13, of Copley; Mason Jasiunas, 5, of Copley; Owen Paul, 4, of Fairlawn; and Haylie Mirman, 13, of Copley gave tennis a try on the driveway of CFMS.
