Chagrin Falls Dads’ Club puts the FUN in fundraising By LAURI GROSS With a motto of “Get involved, have fun, make a difference,” the Chagrin Falls Dads’ Club is pretty hard not to like. Except maybe if you are comparing your own fundraising efforts to theirs and you realize the Chagrin Falls Dads’ Club reigns supreme. Founded in 1996, the non-profit club seeks to improve the educational, recreational and social opportunities available to the children of the Chagrin Falls School District, and to promote good fellowship and a sense of community among all who participate in the organization and in their events. Judging by the long list of the group’s accomplishments and the smiles on the faces of participants, volunteers, beneficiaries and attendees, there can be no doubt that this is a group to be reckoned with. With the nearly $350,000 they have raised and donated so far, the Chagrin Falls Dads’ Club has provided more than $45,000 worth of interactive classroom technologies for all Chagrin schools, built the comfort station at the Gurney Elementary School ballfields, provides funding support for the annual holiday show at Gurney, provided for the renovation and re-construction of the Gurney playground, provided funding for continuing education for teachers, supplied new basketball backboards and rims at Chagrin Falls Intermediate School, purchased new power tools for the Chagrin Falls High School art department, gave about half of the $45,000 necessary to replace the

Chagrin Falls High School 20-year-old marching band uniforms and plenty more. There are impressive numbers of dedicated people behind the equally impressive statistics that define this group. Members and supporters provide manual labor for tasks like building playgrounds, orchestrating parking, helping to renovate stadium bathrooms, etc., not to mention the hoards of volunteers who staff the fundraising events themselves. For instance, at a poker festival held at Jacobs Pavillion at Nautica every summer, the Chagrin Falls Dads’ Club is one group of many that each take on the duty of running the festival for several days, and keeping the proceeds from those days. It takes

hundreds of volunteers to pull this off. Between 30 to 40 are there every minute of the festival. There is also an annual golf outing, a family picnic, a dinner dance and more. Immediate past president, former vice president of fundraising and current board member of the Chagrin Falls Dads’ Club, Joe Marquette said, “People may not have a lot of time on their hands but we offer a forum conducive to work schedules. A lot of what we do is labor intensive, so Dads can spend a Saturday helping to build a playground or fixing ballfields but they may not be able to serve on a committee all year. So it works. We fill a gap by providing a way for families to get involved.” The annual family picnic is one of the biggest events of the year for the Chagrin Falls Dads’ Club, which typically lists about 200 members on its roster. Usually around 75 families come to enjoy the picnic, which of course includes plenty to keep all family members active and happy. Membership comes with $40 annual dues and no obligation to attend every meeting or help on events (though doing so is, of course, encouraged). “Our casual nature allows for camaraderie and friendships,” said Mr. Marquette. “We enjoy each other’s company. so it is easy for people to stay involved even when their kids graduate. It’s a fun group and we are making a difference in what our kids can do in Chagrin Falls.” For information, visit Chagrindads.com.

Make your customers take notice By LAURI GROSS Back in the day, if you wanted to advertise your product, you didn’t need to look any farther than Larry Tate. Remember Larry Tate? He was Darrin Stephens’ boss at the McMann and Tate advertising agency on “Bewitched,” the fab television show that made its debut in 1964. Larry and Darrin could really come up with hip advertising slogans. But, as I am clearly not the first to say, things are more complicated today. Including advertising. Today, if you want people to notice you, you need more than Larry. You need Eric. And Adam and Kevin, and Sam and Jim. These five own and/or operate local companies that ensure your customers know you’re there, even in today’s over-the-top ad clutter. And they’re as hip as Larry and Darrin any day.

Signs by Tomorrow 216-663-1000 Eric Hamilton, owner of Signs by Tomorrow in Maple Heights, says he is in the “helpyou-get-noticed” business. As the name says, the company makes signs, and they really can make them by tomorrow. For certain signs, in certain cases where a customer has their design ready to go, placing an order by noon means you get your sign the next day by 4 p.m. No matter if you’re in a hurry or not, Mr. Hamilton and his team will make sure you are taken care of. “People thank us for taking the time to get the job done right,” said Mr. Hamilton. The front of his shop features samples displayed in a
showroom. Clients meet with designers in the back, where the actual signs are created. Whether someone needs a simple “Happy Birthday” banner, a large magnet for a van, a sign to mark the entrance to their neighborhood development, window graphics, tradeshow booth displays or a sandwich-board sign for the front of a business, it all begins with a computer file. Then a large-format printer and a plotter get to work and voila! You are definitely getting noticed. Sign-A-Rama Mayfield 440-4420-5002 Sign-A-Rama Mayfield offers another option for having your company signs made (or banners, vehicle magnets, tradeshow displays, real estate signs, etc.) Samuel Costiuc owns and operates the Mayfield location. The largest full-service sign company in the world, with more than 900 locations in 50 countries, Sign-A-Rama provides as much or as little guidance as customers need. Already have your logo and the design of your sign in mind? Use the free online design center at Signarama-Mayfield.com. Use Sign-A-Rama templates or a completely original design of your own making. Upload it and Mr. Costiuc and his team will create it. Need a little more help? The Sign-A-Rama Mayfield design team can help you each step of the way, including installing your finished product. “Customer service and relationships are what we are built on,” said Mr. Costiuc. “We deliver what we promise and we deliver it on time.”

Screenvision 440-681-0768 When you settle down to watch a movie in a theater, you sink into that comfy chair, you bask in the air conditioning, and you relax as you gaze up at the huge screen, ready to soak in whatever appears there. Research proves it. And that’s why the big screen is a popular place to run ads. Moviegoers can’t TiVo their way out of it. They are not in a hurry to leave. They are not distracted. Your ad on the big screen can be as good as the feature film, in terms of the power it has to stay in your customer’s mind. And Jim McKowne, the local senior representative for Screenvision, can help you do just that. “Advertising on a neighborhood movie screen is like the local version of advertising with a Super Bowl ad,” Mr. McKowne said. No other venue is like it for appealing to a captive audience of customers who live, work and shop in the exact market where the ad appears. Mr. McKowne can help you decide on which screens — from Chagrin to Solon to Mayfield Heights and beyond — and for how long your ad should run. Your actual spot will be produced at the company headquarters in New Jersey. Research shows 72 percent of Americans watch a movie in a theater at least once a year. Many consider movie-going America’s No. 1 leisure activity. Maybe watching movietheater ads is No. 2. Companies all strive to be good stewards of their precious advertising dollars and there are more choices than ever on how to do that. The choices included here offer more affordability and flexibility than you may think. These are small, nimble — and of course, local — companies eager to help you achieve your goals by creating the perfect mix for promoting and growing your company.

Shop, learn, grow at Lowe’s Something is always in bloom inside the Lowe’s greenhouse. (photos by Itamar Gat)
By LAURI GROSS We usually decide what to wear based on where we are going. Going to meet with the florist to choose flowers for your wedding? You have just the outfit. Running off to attend a seminar on caring for your houseplants? No problem. Heading out to shop for some cute fashion accessories at your favorite boutique? You can handle that. Or, stopping by the garden center to load your car with bags of mulch? Your old, torn jeans will do just fine. But what if you are going to all these places at once? Now that could be a fashion challenge — but it happens every day at Lowe’s Greenhouse in Bainbridge Township since Lowe’s offers all that and much more. And don’t worry, they’ll treat you with the same great service no matter what you wear. As the Lowe’s website officially states, “For more than 80 years, Lowe’s Greenhouse, Florist and Gift Shop has 42 Chagrin Valley Magazine 2012-2013
been the place to go for a wide selection of plants, a helpful and knowledgeable staff, and an environment of honesty and integrity committed to community service.” That part has stayed the same but much has changed, also. The soil room, where they used to make their own potting soil with compost, a steam generator, a tractor, wheelbarrows and plenty of elbow grease, is now the computer room, housing all sorts of technology and not a single tractor. More profound than physical changes, however, are the changes to the experience of visiting Lowe’s. Lowe’s still carries an eye-popping assortment of flowers, vegetables and herbs, groundcovers, shrubs and trees, houseplants, roses, perennials and just about everything else that grows. But here is a partial list of what else Lowe’s is, and does, and offers: • Their gift shop is really a beautiful boutique with an ever-changing assortment of clothing, coats, purses, jewelry,
shoes, sandals, boots, candles, birdfeeders, statuary, wind chimes, pottery and more. • Their floral department can set you up with a perfect bouquet of fresh-cut flowers for a sick friend or for your own dining room table, or outfit your whole wedding with flowers. In a single year, it is not unusual for Lowe’s talented floral designers to beautify up to 150 weddings. • The experts at Lowe’s will do as much of your yard and garden work and landscaping as you like, including complete design and install services. Or, they will happily teach you to do it yourself in their many seminars and workshops. Recently, these have included topics such as pruning trees, filling a hanging basket, creating a terrarium, getting the most from your vegetable and herb garden, learning the basics about choosing and caring for houseplants and landscape tutorials. Many of these classes are free. • There is even an Easter Egg hunt and

periodic customer appreciation days where visitors enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages and discounts on plenty of items. • In addition, the staff at Lowe’s loves to give advice. Have a sick plant? Bring in a few leaves and let Lowe’s plant doctors take a look. Have soil issues, or too much shade, or trying to decide among the many types of mulch? You are sure to find the answer at Lowe’s.
Lowe’s florist Terry Mascia arranges a display of Glenda Gies handmade bags in the Lowe’s giftshop.
Owner Jeff Griff, whose grandfather bought the business from its original owner nearly 60 years ago, feels that having strong connections throughout the community is vital to the Lowe’s business plan. This ideology manifests itself in the donations Lowe’s regularly makes to charitable causes, and in the fact that Lowe’s serves as a pick-up location for members of the Geauga Family Farms CSA (community supported agriculture), that each
Sunday in January and February, the Lowe’s greenhouses are transformed into a community garage sale, and more. With so much to love about Lowe’s, deciding when to leave the store may be harder than deciding how to dress for the occasion. For more information, call 440-543-5123 or visit Lowesgreenhouse.com.

Keeping the Chagrin Valley active By LAURI GROSS Ahhh, the Chagrin Valley. Plenty of bucolic green space dotted with quaint villages and interspersed with scenic lakes. You’d think all anyone ever does around here is relax in the leisurely environment. Well, the truth is, there is a lot happening here and activity is the name of the game. See that school? Those classrooms are bustling even when school’s out. Know that community center? Never a dull moment there, either. How about the Golf Dome, The Pond ice skating arena, the parks, the yoga studios and the horse arenas? All are a hub for various groups coming and going, well beyond normal business hours. What’s behind this non-stop action? A couple of community-minded organizations determined to keep all of us discovering, learning, playing and growing, that’s what. Kenston Community Education and Chagrin Falls Community Education conspire to keep residents of the Chagrin Valley engaged and active in every season, on every day and at every age. From catalogs bursting with literally hundreds of options, area residents have no problem finding a class, a seminar, an outing or an experience to interest them although it may be a challenge narrowing down those choices to a manageable list. 44 Chagrin Valley Magazine 2012-2013
Kenston Community Education began in 1976 with the formation of the AuburnBainbridge Joint Recreation Board. Since then, KCE has gone through some organizational and administrative shuffling but the mission of the group has stayed the same: to provide recreational and enrichment opportunities at the highest level of service, in the broadest selection of programs at the most affordable prices. The low point for the group came about seven years ago when KCE found itself nearly $100,000 in debt. “Some in the community said we had to shut the doors,” recalled Jennifer Holzheimer, director of KCE. “But the people said, ‘No. There is value here.’ We worked hard to get out of debt and three years later, we were debt free. We have grown every year for the last four years, in terms of revenue and participation. Even in the recession, we grew. The community clearly trusts us again.” With a staff of six part-time employees, Ms. Holzheimer — the only full-time KCE employee — puts out a catalog of programs three times a year. In addition to program listings, the book includes ads from sponsoring groups, many of who also offer classes through KCE, as well as mail or faxin registration forms for many of the youth sports programs. Participants can also register for classes in person, on the phone or at kenstoncommunityed.org.
Officially, KCE is open only on Tuesdays and Thursdays but in reality, Ms. Holzheimer is nearly always available at the KCE office, located in a wing connected to the Kenston Middle School, or at one of the area facilities where KCE classes are held. These facilities include the libraries, gyms, cafeterias, labs and classrooms of all the Kenston schools, plus just about any place you can think of, from the Chagrin Valley Athletic Club to Bainbridge Town Hall, the Chagrin Valley Roller Rink, the Federated Church Family Life Center, Valley Art Center, etc. Chagrin Falls Community Education also makes use of plenty of community facilities. Kenston Community Education and Chagrin Falls Community Education offer similar types of programs in categories such as classes for seniors; arts, crafts and hobbies; computers and technology; business and finance; health, fitness, yoga and dance; adult recreation and sports; preschool programs; recreation, sports and enrichment camps and clinics; summer camps; dog obedience; foreign languages; cooking; photography; gardening; home design; woodworking; writing; sewing; parenting; fishing; and much more. Ray Haase founded Chagrin Falls Community Education when he retired from teaching 12 years ago. “Nothing like it existed,” he said. “At that time, if you were
taking these classes, it was through Kenston. The former director of the Kenston program was my mentor. In our first year, we offered about 10 classes. We had no program guide so instead I passed out flyers at football games.” Mr. Haase served as the group’s director until this summer when Mary Beth Wolfe succeeded him, after serving as his assistant. Ms. Wolfe also serves as the director of the Chagrin Valley Recreation Center. Like KCE, Chagrin Falls Community Ed has matured as it has evolved, and now offers three slick catalogs to residents each year. Registration is by mail, fax or phone and the entire catalog is available online. Start at chagrin-falls.K12.oh.us. Click “Community” at the top of the page and then click “Community Education.” Neither KCE nor CFCE use tax dollars. Both are supported solely by registration fees. When deciding which classes to offer, Mr. Haase and Ms. Wolfe both believe it makes sense to look for opportunities that don’t otherwise exist. “If a program is already available in the Chagrin Valley, we don’t try to compete or take that away,” said Ms. Wolfe. In fact, rather than compete with community groups for participants, CFCE partners with several organizations to maximize the benefit for everyone. For instance, outside groups like Math Monkey, Mad Science, Young Rembrandts and Discovery Tours offer programs separate from CFCE, but the classes are listed in the CFCE program. Mayfield Village offers adaptive education programs for children with special needs. CFCE also lists these in their catalog but accepts no fees for doing so. CFCE even produces a version of its catalog for residents in the West Geauga school district. Ideas for new classes in both KCE and CFCE usually come from community members. When someone identifies a need or is able to share their own talent, they will often create a class and serve as the instructor. This collaborative process helps keep the program offerings fresh and reflective of local trends. CFCE registers about 3,000 people per year, while KCE registers more than 5,000. KCE relies on an army of nearly 150 volunteers each year, mainly serving as coaches for recreational sports leagues. Umpires, refs, scorekeepers and others who keep games running smoothly, however, are paid positions that are often filled by middle and high school students. CFCE does not share this need for volunteers since separate groups run their youth sports programs, including the Chagrin Athletic Association and the Chagrin Soccer Association. It is inspiring to consider the immense logistical task of scheduling, staffing and promoting so many programs for so many people nearly every day of the year, especially when you consider how much better off the Chagrin Valley is because of it.

All Matters Gallery is a delight for all your senses Cynthia Gale, who owns All Matters Gallery with her husband Rainer Hildenbrand, paints images on one of several hundred prayer bowls she and Rainer create each year. (photos by Itamar Gat)
By LAURI GROSS There are hundreds of artists waiting for the chance to display their work at All Matters Gallery in Chagrin Falls. At any given time, husband-and-wife owners of All Matters, Rainer Hildenbrand and Cynthia Gale, show the work of 50 or 60 artists, including themselves, in a mix that changes with the seasons. How do they choose which art to show? Ms. Gale, whose work has been exhibited in museums, galleries and private collections throughout the United States and in dozens of foreign countries, explained, “Rainer and I believe that art can be healing for body, mind and spirit. We look for artists who seem to also understand that art is more than beauty. Art can heal and bring us peace and reflection and make us feel comforted and more whole and connected to Earth. Most of our artists choose to work with natural materials and have a sensitivity to life on Earth and all that that means. We have wood artists who work with the grain or the burl. We have collage 58 Chagrin Valley Magazine 2012-2013
artists who show the edges of the paper so you can see the plant material. Other artists might carve a bird and make us want to be that snowy owl.” As a result, All Matters Gallery is much more than a beautiful place, though there is no shortage of beauty there, to be sure. Depending on when you visit, the gallery’s steel girders may be hung with huge stained glass pieces or there may be displays of jewelry, stone and crystal gifts, art glass, ceramics, wood carvings and turnings, baskets, sculpture, masks, rattles and dream catchers, drums and flutes, drawings and woodcuts, paintings and prints, collage and multimedia, photographs and more. On any visit you are unlikely to miss the prayer bowls. No two are alike but each begins life in the Earth, at a farm that grows humble gourds. “Gourds have been used for thousands of years by indigenous people,” said Ms. Gale, who travels each fall with her husband to the Annual Gourd Show in Greenville, Ohio, to select the gourds that will become prayer bowls in
All Matters Gallery. Growers come from many states to show their gourds at the Greenville festival, the largest gourd show in the world. “The growers know us,” said Cynthia. “We get there early and we help them unpack so we get the first pick.” Others attend the festival looking for gourds that will become drums or rattles, or birdhouses, or — gasp! — the dreaded tacky gourd Santa. Only the luckiest gourds go home with Rainer and Cynthia to become a beautiful, treasured prayer bowl. Each finished prayer bowl is the result of a year-long collaboration between the couple, who work tag-team style on each of the many steps in the process, beginning with creating the opening, which has to be done outdoors, to release the mold and spores. Next comes shaping and sanding the edges, staining the gourd, adding the painted images, sealing it and then finishing with beadwork. Together, the pair produce 400-500 prayer bowls annually. They are popular as gifts marking life’s milestones, including weddings,

births, anniversaries and graduations. The pair also work together to create the dream catchers in their gallery and Mr. Hildenbrand, a museum-quality woodworker according to his wife, makes the display cases and racks, custom designed as each need arises. At equinoxes and solstices, to welcome the arrival of each new season, they hold themed drum and prayer circles, and workshops. At these joyful spiritual gatherings, the pair — and sometimes guest instructors — guide participants in exploring various paths to inner energy and peace. Sometimes, however, achieving these things is as simple as paying a visit to All Matters Gallery.

Elbow grease and the right tools in the hands of John Dowler make a car shine at the Falls Auto Spa. (photos by Itamar Gat)
Falls Auto Spa restores your car’s original beauty By LAURI GROSS With an ozone neutralizer, a high-pressure extractor and a high-speed buffer in his tool kit, Rich Mastnardo might be on the job with “Ghostbusters,” ready to suck negatively charged ectoplasmic entities from dark and creepy hiding places. In actuality, he is ready to suck food particles, coffee stains and unpleasant odors from dark and creepy hiding places inside your car. The owner of the Falls Auto Spa in Chagrin Falls, Mr. Mastnardo is determined to return your dirty, crusty, stained and stinky car in such good condition you may not recognize it. “Most customers say, 60 Chagrin Valley Magazine 2012-2013
‘Wow!’” he said. “They can’t believe the before and after.” Much more than just an in-and-out detailing service, the Falls Auto Spa does for cars what a manicure-pedicure, massage and facial might do for you — rejuvenate from the inside out. When a customer brings in a car for detailing, a Falls Auto Spa technician evaluates the condition of the vehicle, including the carpet, upholstery, paint, etc., in order to know the tools that are needed, which cleaners and waxes will work best and how to protect every surface while working on it. “We use only top-quality products,” Mr. Mastnardo said. “We don’t use any quick waxes or shines that will be gone in a few weeks.” A single technician works on each car, from start to finish, usually spending about three to five hours. Mr. Mastnardo and his crew find some strange things lurking in cars. “Some people should have an address on their car, instead of a license plate, since it looks like they live in them,” he said with a laugh. They find food, shoes, toys, clothing and flashlights that owners have been trying to find for months, he said. The hardest thing to clean is coffee stains from upholstery, Mr. Mastnardo said, but they are nearly always successful in getting it out. Smells are no match for the ozone neutralizer, which oxidizes odor molecules and reduces them to odorless compounds, without using any perfumes. Even a car in which people have smoked for a long time ends up smelling so fresh that non-smokers can’t detect the car’s smelly past. The Falls Auto Spa is part of the Falls Car Collection, where Mr. Mastnardo can find the car of your dreams. He personally hand selects quality, pre-owned vehicles that are Car Fax certified and safety checked. Don’t see what you are looking for on the lot? He can find it for you. With 30 years in the business, Mr. Mastnardo has built his reputation by establishing personal relationships based on trust with each customer. Falls Car Collection offers cars of all makes and models plus award-winning service, five-star customer satisfaction, lowrate financing, extended service contracts, paint, appraisal of your antique or exotic vehicle and shipping worldwide.

Novels, TV shows and plays, oh my! Scott Lax has a hand in, and a leg up, on just about everything By Lauri Gross On an outing around town, if you spot Scott Lax with his wife, Lydia and their toddler son, Finn, you might think he is just another devoted dad and that’s just fine with him. He doesn’t mind if you don’t know that he also spends a fair amount of time with celebrities in Los Angeles, or that, as a professional drummer, he performed with Bo Diddley and other notables. Although he is quick to put “father” at the top of his list of accomplishments, that list also includes novelist, film and television writer and producer, short story writer, playwright and essayist. On one hand, Mr. Lax’s life appears to be a random patchwork of seemingly unrelated phases. As he went from salesman to drummer to writer, one can only imagine his parents wringing their hands and wondering if he would ever “settle down.” The answer is clearly “no” as even now there is nothing settled about his life and yet as he lays down each stepping stone to create his path, a pattern emerges that suggests he knew what he was doing all along. He says he wants to do original and creative work that makes people laugh and think. No matter what form that work has taken, most people would agree that he has done — and is very much still doing — 62 Chagrin Valley Magazine 2012-2013
exactly that. An English major while at Hiram College, Mr. Lax might not have put that degree to much use in his first job as a salesperson, but that changed when he decided to write “The Year That Trembled,” a coming-of-age novel about the Vietnam War. The Denver Post named the book of one 1998’s Milestones in Fiction. In 1999, it was a Vermont Book of the Year runner up. That same year, Hiram College added Scott to their short list of Most Illustrious Alumni. Mr. Lax knew he was on to something and he was just getting started. Later he produced, along with Tyler Davidson, the film version of “The Year That Trembled,” which starred Martin Mull and Fred Willard, who became comedy cult favorites in 1977 during the “Mary Hartman” spinoff “Fernwood 2 Night.” Mr. Lax met Mr. Willard’s wife at a writer’s conference and his friendship with the Willards took off from there. Mr. Lax also adapted “The Year That Trembled” for the stage. Along the way, he kept writing and taught the art of writing at numerous workshops and seminars, piled up plenty of accolades for his essays, features and short stories, and film and television work from film festivals, and writing conferences
and contests, and was named Midwest Filmmaker of the Year at the 2002 Cleveland International Film Festival. He also did some writing for Comedy Central. When the idea for a comedy talk-show popped into his head, he knew it would be the perfect opportunity to work with Martin Mull and Fred Willard again. Mr. Mull (from Shaker Heights), Mr. Willard (from North Ridgeville) and Mr. Lax (from Chagrin Falls) had become true friends during the production of “The Year That Trembled” and the three were happy to team up for the pilot of Mr. Lax’s latest TV idea, which he calls “Cleveland Late-Late.” Following the initial development and fundraising stages, Mr. Lax produced the “Cleveland Late-Late” pilot at the WVIZ ideastream studios at Cleveland’s Playhouse Square, edited it in Los Angeles and then began bringing the show to market. As Mr. Lax describes his efforts to bring “Cleveland Late-Late” to television audiences, he pauses to mention other projects also on his plate: turning one of his short stories into a film, maybe rewriting one of his novels for the big screen, and on and on. It’s a wonder this selfdescribed homebody is really ever home. For more information, call 440-2477800 or visit Scottlax.com.
