• Do you have a favorite..?

    Copley residents are a proud bunch, and understandably so! There's a whole lot to love about our township but The Loop wants to know... What is your very most absolute favorite thing?!? We have a special community art project in the works for this year's Heritage Day/Bicentennial Celebration that involves a collage of the very best parts of Copley. Of course, we know what we think the very best parts are. But we want to make sure your thoughts are in there, too! That's why we've made it easy for you to tell us. Simply head to either our website or our Facebook page to fill out a quick poll form. Have more than one favorite? No…

  • 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?? The Loop is working on a community art project for this year's Bicentennial version of Heritage Days and your answers to that question will be a huge help! If…

  • Handmade, Fair Trade, and Family Day Options

    Did Mother's Day sneak up on you, too? Can you believe it's this Sunday already?! Alright, so...no plan yet? No worries. We can do this. Looking over the happenings below, there seem to be several options to support your community and thank your mom for her awesomeness all at the same time. You can: Make mom something cool all by yourself (except maybe with a little guidance) at one of the four classes scheduled. Find something cool that's already handmade by someone else at The Market Path's fair trade sale. Have a Family Day and take a class with mom, shop the sale together, and stop by the depot for added quality time with…

  • The small list that’s a big deal!

    This week's list of happenings may be short but it's got a lot goin' on! You can still order cool herbs and veggie plants (like an eggplant that looks like a stripey tomato!) from Jacobs Heritage Farm for a few more days. And you can swing by The Market Path on Saturday for 15% off everything, including those awesome polka dot socks you've been eyeing. Then, if you're headed to the Winery at Wolf Creek for their annual Goat Derby, make sure you've scheduled your Uber and have studied up on the goats that are racing! Wrap up your week at The Sassy Sunflower with Judy and Jamie of Style by 3 Generations LuLaRoe and maybe pick up a polka…

  • Plan for plants and sample spirits

    This week comes to us with limited-time offers! In particular, we have preorders for the plant sale at Jacobs Heritage Farm with a pickup of May 4th. The choices available will make even the most vehement anti-gardener consider honing their green thumb skills. (Have you heard of Peach Sugar Rush Peppers?!) And word around the township is that just a handful of tickets remain available for Thursday's Spirits of the Bicentennial at Shisler's Cheese House! What better way to celebrate 200 years Copley Township (whose first industry was a distillery...)? Plus, we have the monthly Copley Seniors meeting (with spirits of another sort - national park ghost stories!), a rescheduled drum circle, and more listed below. Click the…

  • “Life moves pretty fast…

    "If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." For those of us who survived the Aquanet fog, now is a most excellent time to ask ourselves if we've retained our inner Ferris* or forgotten him. Did you ask? Go on. Ask! Then explore the happenings below and ask yourself a follow-up question... And "[t]he question isn't 'what are we going to do', the question is 'what aren't we going to do?'"** This week: Wednesday, April 17 Children's Crafts Day from 7:00 AM - 9:00 PM at Copley Coffee & Games Heritage Day Committee meeting at 7:00 at Town Hall Thursday, April 18 Mystical Insights with Mary…

  • Time to get busy!

    Spring is definitely in the air. And as the days get warmer and the world starts to wake from its Winter nap, we all get a little restless to get out and enjoy as much of that re-awaking as we can. This week, the calendar got a little more full, giving you plenty of reasons to do just that! There are musical events and meetings, bunny butts and sloths, henna tattoos and goddesses, and the first official opening of the Historic Depot and Caboose for the year. Not to mention the park and open farmstands to visit! Take a scroll through the list below to find the reasons that are right for you. Then get out there…

  • Weekend Wanderings…

    All three days this weekend, there are ways to wander and shop that come with special (and fun!) bonus benefits. Friday, wander through vendor tables at The HUB while playing bingo (and maybe win prizes!) to support your local pet rescue, One of a Kind Pets. Saturday, wander through The Market Path while waiting for your henna tattoo time (and again while waiting for it to dry!) to check out their First Saturday Sale. Sunday, wander through The Sassy Sunflower while your favorite Little Hands are busy (and having a fun Art Experience!) to see what's new at the shop. And while you're out and about, don't forget to wonder (and explore!) what…

  • NETWORKING: two events

    This week, the Copley Chamber of Commerce gives you two chances to get to know your local business leaders.

  • breakfast | beading | henna

    This Saturday is shaping up to offer a very nice array of activities to pass the day away in Copley. Start the day off right at the Summit County Farm Bureau's 11th Annual Farmers Share Breakfast at Copley High School. The bureau hosts this annual $1 breakfast to raise awareness of the share your local farmers receive of the cost of food as well as to raise funds for the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. The Bicentennial Committee will be helping out so be sure to stop by their table for your can't-miss commemoratives! Then head to The Sassy Sunflower at noon for a little creative time with Jennie of Beadtini Boutique fame. She'll be teaching a class on…
