• 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!…

  • 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…
