Having 4 young kids of my own you can only imagine how busy my weekends tend to get. Well this one was incredible with 2 basketball games (that I assist coaching), a wrestling tournament for the Avon Lake little Shoreman, Indoor soccer game (that was a travel game) and finally a Night at the Races local church benefit (adult time finally).
Anyway through that entire weekend I have to say what a great town of people we have here in Avon Lake. Everyone tends to know everyone. There in no bad mouthing a parent or someones kid. There are always joking, some fun planning, some catching up and trading up stories and the like that just makes you want to be there for the next local event. I was talking to a local police officer at the Night at the Races benefit and I could not get over how low key and incident the little police activity we do have here. There is always some guy or gal who needs a ride home because of little too much at the local bar or someone who has a car door accidentally locked needing a police officer to pop it open.. that is the big police events. Now I am not saying were an Andy Griffin like town. However, I have to say it is fun to be here where you don't have to worry about leaving your lights on or worried about where you kids are at in the evening.
If you have not been out to check out Avon Lake make a planned trip this weekend. Just take a drive and see the lovely town we have here.
