Hubbard Post to distribute poppies at pair of stores
POPPY DISTRIBUTION: The Hubbard Post 3767 and auxiliary will be distributing poppies 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. today. The members will be at Devine Shop and Save and Handyman. The red poppy became a symbol of the remembrance in 1920. Funds raised from the poppy campaign are used to support veterans who have faced physical and mental hardships because of the war.
HONORING VETERANS: Warren Flea and Farmers Market, 428 Main St. SW, Warren, will honor veterans, first responders and health care workers for Memorial Day with free hot dogs and chips. People need to show proof of veteran status or employee identification required. There is a limit of one meal per person while supplies last. Masks are required to be on premises. Event will be rain or shine.
SOCIETY PLANS SALE: Howland Historical Society is hosting a garage sale June 3 to 5 at 9441 King Graves Road in Howland. Donations are being accepted. Volunteers are needed for the event both during the sale and for pricing items prior to the sale. If interested in donating or volunteering, call 330-398-0667, 330-502-5098 or 330-469-9361.
CONTAINERS REMOVED: The recycling drop-off containers in the parking lot of Christ Episcopal Church, 2637 Atlantic St. NE in Warren, will be permanently removed Monday. The containers were placed to allow residents to recycle household bottles, cans, jugs, jars and paper /cardboard. Unfortunately, others have used it to dispose of mattresses, furniture and other unacceptable items. The unsightly trash and necessary effort to remove these items has put undue strain on the church, so it has asked that the site be permanently closed. Residents are asked to take their accepted recyclables to one of the Geauga-Trumbull Solid Waste Management District’s other nearby sites in Warren or Howland. To locate a site and see what items are accepted, visit www.gottagogreen.org or call 330-675-2673.
