Join Rescue Village and Adventure Subaru for our first ever “Certified Pre-Owned Pet Adopt-a-thon” on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 12 – 3 p.m.. The event will be hosted by Adventure Subaru, located on 1991 Mentor Ave, in Painesville.
October is “Subaru Loves Pets” month and Subaru dealers across the country are teaming up with local shelters to put on adoption and fundraising events. October is also National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. Geauga Humane Society’s Rescue Village hopes to find homes for as many animals as possible at this event and is planning to bring both cats and dogs who will be available for adoption.
Adoption counselors will be on site and people will be able to take home a new furry family member that very day! Adoption pricing will be standard (see our website for details: http://www.geaugahumane.org/adopt). The first five pets adopted that day will get a take home gift from Adventure Subaru and there will be other give-a-ways for everyone in attendance. A kissing booth and a 50/50 raffle will also be at the event.
Adventure Subaru will be collecting items for Rescue Village leading up to the event including: high value dog treats (any brand of small, soft, strong smelling treat), Purina Cat Chow (blue bag) and / or Kitten Chow (yellow bag), any brand canned cat food, Purina Dog Chow or Puppy Chow, peanut butter, durable dog toys and/or cat toys at their location.
The ASPCA estimates that approximately 3.3 million dogs enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year, where they sit waiting to be adopted into a loving home. We are encouraging animal lovers to celebrate Adopt a Shelter Dog Month by adopting a dog from Geauga Humane Society’s Rescue Village. We ask that you to come #FindYourFido at our first Certified Pre-Owned Pet Adopt-a-thon at Adventure Subaru.

Lake Erie Maple Expo Turns Six
It is hard to believe that it has been six years since the concept of developing a maple syrup educational tradeshow, located in the central maple syrup producing region of the country, became a reality. Traditionally the majority of the educational seminars, on maple production, have been centered in New England and New York. The idea of bringing a maple syrup expo to the shores of Lake Erie was definitely a long shot. However, the LEME planning committee, made up of producers from Pennsylvania, Ohio and New York put together a program that was designed to meet the needs of maple producers in this region. Over 500 producers came to the LEME last year. This year’s edition will continue to raise the bar when it comes to maple syrup education.
What can producers expect when they walk through the doors on Nov. 10 & 11 On Friday the LEME will present a series of four-hour workshops where producers have the opportunity of focusing on one specific topic. One of the highlights this year’ workshop series will be a Woods Walk and Talk with Glenn Goodrich. This workshop will offer a rare opportunity to learn the basics of sugarbush layout and design from one of the most respected experts in the maple Industry. The registration for the Workshops is separate from the Expo registration. The cost to attend a four-hour workshops is $30 which includes lunch.
After the workshops the program shifts back to Northwestern High School where the tradeshow will open at 5 p.m. The program will include maple equipment and more maple equipment along with a panel discussion at 6:30 p.m.
On Saturday the trade show will open at 8 a.m., followed by concurrent seminars where producers will be able to choose from over 40 different topics.
Come join your fellow maple producers at the 2017 LEME, Nov. 10 and 11 at Northwestern High School in Albion, PA. Friday morning the workshops will start at 10 a.m. at different venues across the area. Friday evening the doors to trade show open at 5 p.m. and the show will run until 8 p.m. The evening program will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium. Saturday’s program will start with the trade show at 8 a.m.; the educational seminars will begin at 9 a.m. The cost of both Friday evening and all day Saturday programs is 40.00 dollars. Lunch is included. Please plan on preregistering by Oct 15. A late registration fee will be charged after that date. For complete registration information go online to the Northwestern Penn.
