• Thursdays are for…

    Some Thursdays are for henna tattoos at The Market Path. Every Thursday (from late May through early October) is for the Copley Creekside Farmers Market. Just one Thursday happens to be for making an Octopus in a Shell at The Sassy Sunflower. And just once a month, there's a Thursday for Mystical Insights with Mary Ann at The Winery at Wolf Creek. But this particular Thursday is for starting the weekend early with all of the above! Details with links below...

  • Weekend Sales & Sessions

    Here in Copley, we may save our parades and fireworks for holidays outside of July, but that doesn't mean we don't have other ways to occupy your time between cookouts! This weekend, there are sales and sessions of many sorts happening both days. Saturday brings not only The Market Path's First Saturday Sale, but also The Sassy Sunflower's Annual Yard Sale with plenty of vendors to visit. Plus, Clayful Art by Annette will be holding two sessions of a "sweet treat" mini-make class for kids of all ages! Can't make the Yard Sale on Saturday? No worries, it continues on Sunday! This time, the sessions switch from mini-makes to henna tattoos thanks to Akron Henna Art from 11:00 - 4:00. A couple…

  • Plus, a new member to make you smile!

    On Saturday, June 15th, a milestone quietly passed. It was on that day one year ago that The Loop In Copley made its official debut. So in honor of that milestone that has not yet been recognized, we (...okay, I...) have decided it's about time I take ownership and introduce myself as the lady behind The Loop! Hello. My name is Allison Chrien. I'm the owner of Copley Creative Solutions and Founder of The Loop In Copley, a community-based promotion that is supported through its community members. For those who don't know me and perhaps started following along more recently, The Loop was an idea that grew out of another idea, and that original idea grew out…

  • Welcome to The Loop, Cindy!

    Did you know that The Loop In Copley is about more than just events, classes, and meetings? There's also a growing directory of local businesses just as worthy of your support as any of our Destinations! And our newest Loop member, Cindy Havlik-Thompson, operates just such a business as an Independent Consultant for Thirty-One Gifts, a direct sales company that enables consultants to work flexible schedules to fit with their hectic lives. You can learn more about Cindy and Thirty-One Gifts through her Loop Profile and remember, in another month or two when you realize you need that perfect organizational tote, you can always come back to The Loop to find her! There might just be another future member or two waiting in…

  • Shutterbugs and Pros Welcome

    If you enjoy being active in your community and happen to enjoy taking pictures while you're at it, then have we got an opportunity for you! You see, there are just so many wonderful things happening in Copley these days and it would be just so wonderful to share snapshots of those things with the world. So The Loop In Copley is looking to build a network of volunteers to take pictures at select locations and member-sponsored events. In exchange, the volunteers will receive linked and/or tagged (when possible) photo credit, plus they receive a great excuse to get out and have fun while supporting community! A "Loop Photographers" group will be created, options presented, questions and ideas shared... Intrigued? Please contact Allison Chrien at 330-697-0374…

  • Our options are ever-expanding!

    It's been wonderful to watch our Sunday fun day options expand around Copley Circle over the past few years! We can now stop by Copley Coffee & Games for a cuppa and stroll through The Sassy Sunflower for treasures each and every week. And this weekend, the Copley Bandstand committee kicks off its 42nd season of weekly Sunday Summer Concerts! (Rumor has it, Copley Coffee will open back up after their crafty afternoon class for those looking for that concert cuppa...) But did you know that the second Sunday of the month from June through September holds extra special options? Not only does the Copley Creekside Farmers Market bring back its bonus Second Sunday Market this weekend from noon…

  • Signs of Summer!

    This week's calendar is showing signs of the summer vacation we've all been waiting for! I spy with my little eye... Yappy Hours at The Winery at Wolf Creek, the Grand Opening of the Copley Creekside Farmers Market, and the Copley Police Annual Bike Rodeo. And if you keep scrolling down, waaay on down to the bottom of next week's list, you'll even find the very first Sunday Concert at the Circle! Feels just like welcoming back old friends... PLUS: Tips for staying in the Loop! Of course, with the summertime uptick in events comes an uptick in the chances you'll miss out if you're not paying attention, so we want to make sure you remember all the ways to stay in the Loop!…

  • Loop Members are getting discovered!

    In case you haven't heard, Monday morning was a very big morning for Copley Township as New Day Cleveland aired profiles on five of our favorite local businesses. In fact, all five of the show's Copley businesses were Loop Members, and we're exceptionally proud of them all! It's small businesses that give Copley its character and you can watch the full episode right here to see that our character is really quite charming. And while you're thinking of all that charm, we want to know...what's your favorite thing about your township??
