Happy March! Happy Spring! Hopefully it will be goodbye to COVID-19 soon! Warmer weather and daylight savings time are around the corner, as we spring forward and move the clocks ahead one hour on March 14th! Here’s a recap of what’s going on in the Village.
RECYCLING NEWS UPDATE: Our recycling vendor, Rumpke Waste and Recycling, is now accepting additional items with your weekly recycling. More information is available in this issue of The Pink Sheet and on Rumpke’s website. In addition to your regular household pickup, there are paper recycling containers for magazines, newspapers and collapsed cardboard boxes located behind Town Hall in the service area.
VILLAGE FIX-UP TIME: As we move into the next season, spring clean-ups will begin. Thank you to everyone who has been fixing fences and trimming trees. Remember to call Town Hall for permits prior to cutting trees, erecting new fences or adding auxiliary buildings.
GATES MILLS ART SHOW: Due to COVID-19 we are postponing the event until later this year. We look forward to hosting this special event once again. The committee is working hard to make it safe for exhibitors and guests, while adding some exciting new features. If you would like to volunteer, please call Jean or Dorothy at the Town Hall with your contact information.
EASTER EGG HUNT: Similar to last year, filled Easter Eggs will be distributed via a DRIVE THRU event on Friday, April 2nd. See the Pink Sheet page or www.gatesmillsvillage.com for complete details and to PREREGISTER.
Mayfield School’s Superintendent, Dr. Keith Kelly, is retiring on July 31, 2021, after leading the district for nine years. His successor is Dr. Michael Barnes, who has served as the Superintendent of Lakewood City Schools for the last three years. Dr. Barnes is coming home to Mayfield where he was a teacher, Athletic Director, Director of Human Resources and Assistant Superintendent. We wish him lots of success.

As mentioned in the State of the Village letter, if you are interested in volunteering for any committees, please let us know. You can email me at email@example.com or call Town Hall with your information. We encourage your active participation to help maintain our great Gates Mills programs and events.
Let’s all stay safe, wear our masks, practice social distancing and hopefully we will be back to a form of normalcy soon.
