• Places to go, things to do, people to see…

    We've got some new people around here, so let's just take a moment to review, shall we? For those still wrapping their heads around what this is, here's the synopsis:  The Loop In Copley is a community-based promotion that is currently supported by the memberships of local businesses, Copley Township, and non-profit organizations and that aims to keep everyone up-to-date regarding community events, small business happenings, and non-profit group meetings. And in order to keep you up-to-date, The Loop's website is ready for you to visit with a Calendar of things to do, a Destination page with a map of places to go, and both a Community and a Business page for people to see.

  • Recap: Heritage Day 2019

    Well, goodness. Saturday was a very busy day of canvas-painting and parade walking for The Loop. Welcome, all of our new followers! And for those new followers that didn't get the synopsis on Saturday, here's the gist: The Loop is here to make it easier for you to be engaged in your community and to support local businesses. There's just one email a week telling you what's happening that week and the next, and I really do try to keep it fairly short and sweet (this week's a bit of a fluke, I promise...). So while there's MUCH to talk about on the calendar this week, I'm just gonna have to trust…

  • Time for the Grand Finale!

    It's been a busy year of Bicentennial celebrations and hopefully, you've been able to enjoy a few of the events along the way. Of course, we understand if you've missed a few here and there. That happens. But now it's time for the Grand Finale and this is definitely a weekend you don't want to miss! There's Friday night with a charity football game leading to a symphonic winds concert and ending in fireworks with food available throughout the evening. There's Saturday starting with the pancake breakfast at the fire station then heading to the park with vendors for shopping, bounce houses for kids, laser tag for teens, Akronym beer for adults, food for all, the parade at…

  • 2 Networking Events, 2 New Members

    And for the 2nd time this year! Back in March, when the Copley Chamber of Commerce happened to host two networking events in the same week, The Loop also welcomed two new members. Well, it was totally unplanned, but it's kinda cool that it's happened once again! NETWORKING: two events You can join the Chamber this evening (assuming you open your email in a timely manner) at Summit Releaf to learn more about the medical marijuana prescription process. And you can also join the Chamber on Thursday morning at Bomba to kick your day into high gear with a little HOP Speed Networking. MEMBERS: two new Meanwhile, know what else was totally unplanned but kinda cool?…

  • 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?

  • 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…
