Fairlawn School of Music

BATH — The Fairlawn School of Music experienced damage during a severe storm May 27. The storm, considered a microburst, caused nearly 10 trees to fall on the property, damaging four vehicles and destroying two vehicles, according to school officials. The two destroyed vehicles belonged to teachers at the school. In the wake of the storm, the Fairlawn School of Music, 201 N. Cleveland-Massillon Road, is hosting a festival June 22 from 2 to 6 p.m. This festival is a fundraiser to assist the teachers in securing new transportation, as insurance is only covering a portion of the total cost, according to school officials. The festival is free to attend and will include live music. Games, raffle items and food will all be available for purchase. In addition to the festival, the school has designed Wolfgang the Guinea Pig (the Fairlawn School of Music mascot) stickers that are for sale in the school office and will be for sale at the event. All proceeds from the festival will be given directly to the staff to cover costs associated with the damages to their vehicles, according to school officials. For more information, call 330-576-6527 or visit www.fairlawnschoolofmusic.com.

BATH — A “Cookout for a Cause” featuring all-American fare June 26 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Brookdale Place, 101 N. Cleveland-Massillon Road, will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. The event also will include live music. The cost is a $5 donation. For reservations, call Amanda or Renee at 330-666-7011 by tomorrow, June 20.
