Fall In Full Swing In Parma Heights
After a very busy and productive summer, we are excited to welcome fall. School is back in session, the days and nights get cooler, and the leaves begin to change.
Fall remains full of activity in our community.
DELAYED REFUSE COLLECTION
Labor Day is observed this year on Monday, September 4. With the holiday, we remind residents that refuse collection across the city will be delayed that week until Thursday, September 7.
SCRAP TIRE COLLECTION
The city will host a scrap tire collection on Saturdays, September 9 and 23. Tires must be off rims. Your scrap tires can be brought to the city service garage, located in the Greenbrier Commons complex, 6200 Pearl Road, from 9 a.m. until Noon both days.
FREE PRODUCE/COMMUNITY GARDEN
Also on September 9, the Parma Heights Food Pantry, working in concert with the Cleveland Foodbank, will distribute free produce from 9 a.m. to Noon in the parking lot behind city hall at 6281 Pearl Road. You are asked to bring your own bags.
People may not realize it, but Parma Heights has a community garden in the Greenbrier Commons complex, and the Parma Heights Garden Club maintains the garden. All produce from the garden is harvested and is donated to the Parma Heights Food Pantry.
THE DAFFODIL PROJECT CONTINUES – PHASE TWO
This fall, the Garden Club will begin phase two of last year’s highly successful “Daffodil Project.” Last year, Garden Club members solicited donations from Parma Heights businesses. Monies were used to purchase over 3,000 daffodil bulbs, which the garden club planted in front of businesses along the Pearl Road corridor, (in front of and behind Parma Heights City Hall), and in our city parks. More planting is expected to take place this fall on other main business arteries. It’s all part of efforts to enhance our community, and beautify the Pearl Road Corridor
YOGA AND PILATES CLASSES
Yoga with Pilates classes will be held in the community rooms in the basement of the Cassidy Theatre. Classes will be held from 7-8 p.m., and the next eight-week session begins Monday, September 11. Fee is $50. You can register online at www.parmaheightsoh.gov or by calling the Recreation Department at 440.884.9606.
