From a few weeks ago. Rags in a dryer at a laundromat started smoking, so the Avon Lake Fire Department came by to put it out.
I had computer virus or two that took a while to remove, so I didn’t want to log in with any social media until I was sure my computer was cleaned up. It’s been a while since I have posted anything as a result, so here are some pictures I’ve taken over the past several weeks.
Took some pictures of the We Love Jeremy golf outing on Aug. 10 at a local golf course. They raise money for Christmas presents for families at Rainbow Babies and Childrens Hospital and to sponsor a room at the Ronald McDonald House. This year they raised a total of $26,000. I’ve never shot golf before, so it was an interesting experience taking pictures and trying not to disturb the golfers in their teeing off and putting.
The Back to School BBQ in Avon Lake was a hit this weekend. Lots of families came out and let their kids have fun with games, face painting and plenty of food.
Avon Lake had its second wine festival this past weekend. About 2,000 people showed up to enjoy some local wines and watch the sunset over the lake.
A local parks and rec program offers standup paddling yoga. The instructor and his students gave a demo today at the pool. Pretty cool stuff, and nobody fell in.
A local group held a fishing derby, called Hooks for Hunger, to benefit a local social services/food pantry called Community Resource Services. There’s a reason people eat these fish instead of keeping them in fish bowls - no Nemos here.
Happy belated Fourth of July pictures

It was a nice day yesterday for a stroll through Avon Lake’s community garden
