Ron Marhofer Selected As Parade Grand Marshal STOW

— THE GRAND MARSHAL FOR THIS YEAR’S FOURTH OF JULY PARADE IS A MAN WHO IS NOT PARTICULARLY FOND OF THE SPOTLIGHT. “The personal sense of integrity and the generosity of Ron Marhofer on behalf of the Stow community has not gone unnoticed, although Mr. Marhofer prefers to keep a low profile,” said Parks and Recreation Director Linda Nahrstedt. The owner and president of Ron Marhofer Auto Family, which includes Marhofer Chevrolet at the intersection of routes 91 and 59, could not be reached for comment before press time. He has provided support for Kent State University’s Aviation Heritage Fair, given away cars to graduating Stow-Munroe Falls High School seniors and donated funds for Marhofer Field at StowMunroe Falls High School’s Bulldog Stadium. The parade is sponsored by the city of Stow and the Stow-Munroe Falls Kiwanis Club. Nahrstedt said Marhofer will lead a parade with 103 entrants this year, including local businesses, community groups,

Scouts and “lots of military.” “It’s a variety,” she said. “I think it’s going well. Once again, we’re looking forward to representing what Stow has to offer in community businesses and community organizations.” The theme of this year’s parade is “Star Spangled Salute!” The parade kicks off at 10 a.m. from Stow-Kent Shopping Center, travels west down Kent Road past Holy Family Church and ends at Park Drive. A reviewing stand will be located at Kent and Elm roads. The annual Stow Firecracker Run will take place earlier that morning, beginning at Holy Family Church at 7:30 a.m. and going west to Target Plaza. Because of the two events, Kent Road (Route 59) from Marsh Road to Englewood Drive and Darrow Road (Route 91) from Graham Road to Pinehurst Road in Munroe Falls will both be closed from 7:15 to 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. to noon. Times are approximate. The only through traffic permitted during the restricted periods will be for emergency vehicles only. Some businesses in the area will be open that day, and employees that need to reach their workplace should plan to

take a route that does not cross Route 59 (parade route) during the stated times that roads are closed.

LONG TIES TO STOW

Jack Marhofer, Ron Marhofer’s father, founded the family business as an auto repair shop at the Stow location in 1919. It became a Chevrolet dealership in 1933. Ron Marhofer was born in Akron, grew up in Stow and graduated from Stow High School, where he played football and wrestled, in 1963. He then served three years in the Army, was honorably discharged and attended the University of Akron before joining his family’s business in 1968. He purchased the business from his brother John in 1975 and since then, it has grown to seven franchises in eight locations. The company has more than 400 employees and in 2014, sold more than 12,000 vehicles with nearly $300 million in sales. The Stow location is currently undergoing a multi-million dollar redesign and update in which Marhofer worked with nearby residents to find a mutually satisfactory plan. He has said that he credits the

company’s growth and success to great people working for him, an emphasis on the Golden Rule, prenegotiated pricing, decision making made by consensus, with employees empowered to make decisions in a cooperative team atmosphere, motivating them to enthusiastically embrace Ron Marhofer Auto Family as their own. Marhofer is past president of the Akron Automobile Dealers Association, past chairman of the Walsh Jesuit High School board and a board member now of the Akron area See PARADE, Page 6

Better Business Bureau. He and his wife Nancy have been married for 35 years and have three children, Heidi and twin brothers Chris and Scott, all of whom are involved in the business, and two grandchildren, Scott’s son, Maxx and Chris’ daughter, Marybeth Anne. “A s u c c e s s f u l businessman of distinction for many years,” said Nahrstedt, “he has shown his commitment and devotion to the community by always giving back, and is rather modest about it all. These reasons make him an excellent choice for this year’s Stow Fourth of July Parade grand marshal.”

City of Stow Week part of county’s 175th anniversary celebration The city of Stow is the featured community for the week of June 29 as Summit County continues to celebrate its 175th Anniversary. The city was established in 1957. In 1796, Joshua Stow was a member of an exploration team headed by Moses Cleaveland. Land that was originally part of Hudson Township was purchased by Joshua Stow and became Stow Township in 1804. Joshua Stow never lived in Stow. The first settler in Stow Township was William Walker, who arrived in 1802. Joseph Darrow was hired to survey the land into lots by Joshua Stow’s land agent, William Wetmore who moved to Stow in 1804 with his family and several other settlers. Receiving the

proclamation from Summit County Executive Russ Pry and County Council was Stow Mayor Sara Drew. The proclamation was presented by County Council President Ilene Shapiro. During the coming months one of the county’s 31 communities will be highlighted and honored each week with a proclamation read into the Summit County Council Record. In addition, the highlighted community will have a special “Then and Now” history brief published on the portal page of the Summit County website: https:// co.summitoh.net. Stow Mayor Sara Drew, left, accepts the county’s proclamation of City of Stow Week from Summit County Council President Ilene Shapiro as members of Summit County Council and Summit County Executive Russ Pry, back left, watch.

City of Stow Week proclaimed WHEREAS: Today we reflect on the great history of the City of Stow. In 1796, Joshua Stow was a member of an exploration team headed by Moses Cleaveland. Land that was originally part of Hudson Township was purchased by Joshua Stow and became Stow Township in 1804. While Joshua he never settled in Stow, he was quoted as saying it was “one of the prettiest and most romantic spots in the Western Reserve”; and WHEREAS: The first settler in Stow Township was William Walker, who arrived in 1802. Joseph Darrow was hired to survey the land into lots by Joshua Stow’s land agent, William Wetmore moved to Stow in 1804 with his family and several other settlers. The Wetmores built a cabin near the center of Stow Township at the presentday intersection of Darrow Road and Kent Road. In 1808, Stow Township was formally organized, but the first elections were not held until January 5, 1811; and WHEREAS: Stow was an agricultural community known for several farms including the Stewart-Hanson Farm that is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, the Darrow House built in 1847 by Joseph Darrow’s son Lyman and is known for generations of popcorn production; and the Call Farm that was one of the earliest homesteads in Stow producing corn, rye, wheat and trees. Call Farm operated for

nearly 200 years until it was sold for housing in 2002; and WHEREAS: Stow Aviation Field was one of the first airports in the State of Ohio used during World War I as an en route landing field by pilots transporting Jennys to parts of the United States from Canada. It was open to the public in 1920 and was used by notable flyers such as Charles Lindbergh, Floyd Bennet and Eddie Rickenbacker. Kent State University purchased the airport in 1943. The Air field was named Andrew W. Paton in honor of the professor who taught the first aerospace program at the airport; now THEREFORE: Be it known by all and declared by the Council and the Executive of the County of Summit, State of Ohio that: This Council and Executive urge all citizens to recognize the significant contributions this outstanding community has made to the growth and vibrancy of our region and to celebrate its citizens, history and many successes on this 29th day of June in the year 2015.

Ice cream social, pancake breakfast to be hosted by church by SOPHIE KRUSE | REPORTER To keep up with tradition, First Christian Church of Stow, 3493 Darrow Road, will once again be hosting its two Pride Week events: the annual ice cream social and pancake breakfast. The ice cream social will be returning June 23 from 5 to 8 p.m. According to the Rev. Jonathan Rumburg, this year it will be “ice cream extreme.” Along w i t h s u n d a e s, there will be sloppy joes, hot dogs, chips and pop, along with root beer floats and pie a la mode. There will also be entertainment at the event, including music and a bounce house. Rumburg was unsure of how long the social has been going

on, but knows it was taking place long before he joined the church six years ago. This year, they’re bringing back the tradition of having food at the event. He said they’re hoping for about 100 attendees. Last year, the ice cream social was canceled because it fell too close to the pancake breakfast and was going to be too hard on the volunteers. The pancake breakfast will be hosted July 4 from 7 to 10 a.m. and has been a tradition for more than 45 years. It will offer all-youcan-eat pancakes, real maple syrup, sausage patties, coffee, tea and juice. Rumburg said he expects between 400 and 600 attendees, which past breakfasts have reached. However, he said he notices that they get a higher attendance when the holiday falls during mid-week because more people are in town. A local Boy Scout Troop volunteers each year with the breakfast to help out the church, along with volunteers from the church.

Parking for both events will be available at the church. For the pancake breakfast, Rumburg said to make sure to go east on Graham Road and come to the church through side neighborhoods, as Darrow Road will be closed for the Firecracker Run. “First Christian Church in Stow is the oldest church in Stow,” he said. “We take great pride in being in this community and we want folks to know we’re here. We celebrate our pride of being in the Stow community and we want to be involved.” Email: skruse@recordpub.com Phone: 330-541-9418 Ice Cream Social

Library to kick off Pride Week with a carnival by SOPHIE KRUSE | REPORTER Come one, come all, to the greatest show of them all. While it might not be expected for the location, for one day the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library will be transformed into a classic carnival midway to kick off Stow Pride Week. The library is putting on The Greatest Show In Stow Library Carnival, where families are invited to visit the library on June 25 between 3 to 7 p.m. for games, activities, entertainment, food, music and fun. The event is the brainchild of Doug Dotterer, executive director of the library. “I want to try to bring back the old-fashioned carnival from years past,” he said. “We’ll have games, surprises and all kinds of entertainers, and we will be promoting our summer reading programs which are very important. We’re trying

to show what the library is really about for children.” Dotterer said that he came up with the idea for the carnival last March and it has been in the works for over a year to make sure the event is perfected. Games like ring toss, holein-one challenge, quackquack match, tic-tac-toe, luck of the spin and biggest fling in the ocean will be available to play. Other activities include balloontwisting and face painting. There will be prizes for children and gas cards will be raffled off for adults. There will also be a visit from Spike, the library’s mascot. Activities will be both indoors and outdoors, depending on the weather. The library has never put on an event like this before. According to Ann Malthaner, marketing and public relations manager for the library, the library

is building off the past success of Touch a Truck, which brought around 2,000 people to the library. They are expecting a similar turnout for the carnival. The library’s goal is to get attendees to the library to have a good time and give children a memory to carry with them throughout the year. “We think we’re going to get a lot of children and families coming out for this new event,” Dotterer said. “We’re having it on library grounds to bring in families and get them to experience what the library’s all about.”

‘Stars’ to come out at annual Pride Concert “Stars Wars” will be featured at the annual Stow Pride Concert, which will close out the Stow Symphony Orchestra’s 17th season. The concert will be performed on June 27 at 7:30 p.m. in the Stow-Munroe Falls High School Auditorium located at 3227 E. Graham Road, Stow. Refreshments will be served following the concert. Founder and Music Director Darrell Lee Music will be conducting the performance as he has in years past since 1998. He also founded the Stow Symphony Orchestra Chorus the same year, which the orchestra also performs with at times. The Stow Symphony Orchestra focuses on popular classical music, as well as popular music from video games and popular movies, or Broadway shows. This year the orchestra will highlight “Star Trek Through the Years,” including themes from “Star Trek,” “Star Trek Deep Space Nine,”“Star Trek Voyager,”“Star Trek The Motion Picture,” and from “Star Trek The Next Generation,” “The Inner Light.” A new arrangement by Music of Hoagy Carmichael’s “The Nearness of You,” Sousa’s “Semper Fidelis March,” Aaron Copland’s “Hoe Down,” music from “The Lord of the Dance,” including “The Lord of the Dance” and “Cry of the Celts” and music from “Jurassic Park” will round out the program. A mainstay of the Stow Pride Concert is its patriotic theme, featuring performances of Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” as well as “The Stars and Stripes Forever” and an “Armed Forces Salute.” Also featured will be the winner of this year’s Conductor Raffle, Yadira Jensen, who will be conducting “Morning Mood” from Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt. The Stow Symphony Orchestra is a non-profit arts organization for audiences across Northeast Ohio. Although the orchestra is volunteer-based, auditions are mandatory to join. Tickets for the Stow Pride Concert can be purchased

online at www.stoworchestra.com/tickets.htm, or at the door. Those interested can also call 330-678-0029 for more information. Tickets are for sale at $10 for adults, $7 for students and seniors, and children under the age of 12 are free.

Stow to host 37th annual Firecracker Run July 4 Stow– Excitement will be in the air as the city of Stow will host its 37th annual Firecracker Run July 4 as part of the Pride Festival events. The event will kick off at 7:30 a.m. with a 4-mile run followed by the 3K fun run immediately after. The race will start at Holy Family Church on Kent Road, travel to Target Plaza on Kent Road and head back to the church. Linda Nahrstedt, the director of Parks and Recreation in the city of Stow, is in charge of the Firecracker Run. She said she is very excited about the run this year. “The Firecracker Run is very important to the community of Stow and is very deep in tradition,” Nahrstedt said. “There are a lot of folks that come back to the area that either lived here or went to school here and they will come back to run while also seeing the parade.” In fact, Nahrstedt said, not only do people from the Stow area compete in the event but people also come from outside the community, outside of the county and even outside of the state. Nahrstedt is optimistic that the event will generate a

People can pay in person at Stow Parks and Recreation at Stow City Hall on Darrow Road. The first 500 entrants will receive a commemorative tech shirt. No pets are allowed to participate in the race. Strollers are not allowed in the 4-mile run but are allowed to be used in the 3K fun run. Awards will also be distributed after each run. In the 3K fun run, all finishers will receive a finishers ribbon and the top male and female finishers will be awarded a special prize. The 4-mile run will have awards for a number of winners. The top three male and females will receive overall awards. Awards will also be given to the top three males and females in specific age groups. Such age groups include: 14 and under, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 4044, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64

lot of participation since the last two years have been extremely successful. “We’ve had really high participation the last couple years,” Nahrstedt said. “We probably had around 600 participants last year and in 2013, we had nearly 700 people in the run.” Nahrstedt said that the prices for both runs are very affordable. The 4-mile run costs $25 if participants register before the day of the race and $30 if they pay the day of the event. The 3K fun run costs $15 pre-registration and $20 if paid for the day of the run. Families of three or more receive a discount of $1 per runner. All entries must arrive together. There are various methods of payment for the event. Checks made payable to the City of Stow, cash or credit cards are three ways to register. There is also an option to register online at StowOhio.recdesk.com.

Entertainment, laughter promised at Holy Family Summer Fest by ANDREW BUGEL | REPORTER

Stow––Holy Family Parish will host its eighth annual Summer Fest June 26-28. This will be the first time the festival will take place in the front parish parking lot along Kent Road. “When we started this event in 2008, the parish was under construction so we had to have the fest in the back parking lot,” chairperson Craig Wilhoit said. “That kind of made it difficult to attract crowds because it was hard to even see that the event was going on. Moving it up to the front lot this year is very beneficial.” Live entertainment, inflateables, obstacle courses, food and games for kids will be available each day. The fest kicks off Friday, June 26 from 5 to 11 p.m. with The Stowbillies performing during the evening. The fest will be open on Saturday, June 27 from 4 to 11 p.m. Rick Smith will bring his magic show to the fest Saturday with two performances. The first will start at 5:15 p.m. and his final performance will be at 6:15 p.m. Wilhoit said Rick’s performance

has been a big hit for the children in past years. “The kids love him,” Wilhoit said. “Rick started with us the first year and has been pretty loyal in coming back each year.” Instant Replay will provide the live entertainment Saturday night from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. There will also be a very popular 50/50 raffle at 9 p.m. The winner of the raffle will receive free pizza for a year from Teresa’s Pizza and $500. Sunday is the final day of the fest and runs from noon until 5 p.m. A steel drum band will perform and a $10,000 raffle will be the final event at the festival. Tickets for the raffle are $10 per person. Marty’s Concessions and Metropolis Popcorn will be working with the parish to provide food for the threeday event. There will also be a beer tent for the adults as well as a cornhole tournament that will take place Saturday night. Instant bingo, 18 booths for kids games and six money wheels will be on-hand as well. Admission and parking to the event

are both free. Food and drinks are not free but Wilhoit says the prices will be kept to a minimum. “We just want everyone to have a good time and we want to promote community involvement,”Wilhoit said. “We would really like to get the entire city to be a part of the activities.” For more information about the Holy Family Summer Fest, contact Craig Wilhoit at 330-696-7788.

Love Float to help Good Neighbors For more than 30 years, the Love Float, sponsored by the Stow Alliance Fellowship, has made an appearance in the Stow Fourth of July Parade. As it makes its way on the Kent Road parade route, it collects non-perishable food items and monetary donations for Good Neighbors Inc.

Good Neighbors is the local area food bank that services families in Stow, Munroe Falls, Cuyahoga Falls, Silver Lake, Hudson and Peninsula. Through the support of the community, the Love Float raised $1,800 last year, as well as a pickup truck full of non-perishables. This year, parade-goers will have the opportunity to support Good Neighbors again

by bringing non-perishable food items and monetary donations to the parade where Love Float volunteers will be collecting donation throughout the entire route. Float attendees will be carrying containers for monetary donations and wheeling wagons for your food donations. Look for the Love Float rain or shine!
