Beachwood Boredom-Busters logoWe were sorry to miss everyone due to the cancellation of our August 6 National Night Out event. The outdoor nature of the activities meant we couldn't move it all inside when the inclement weather arrived. We'll look forward to hosting that event in 2020.  

In the meanwhile, mark your calendars for our 20th annual Honkin' Haulin' Hands-on Trucks on September 15 from Noon - 3:00 PM: all the police, fire and service trucks will be on hand plus a medevac (medical evacuation) helicopter, too! Now, let's look ahead to this week.


2:00 – 3:15: Poolside Stories at the Beachwood Family Aquatic Center: enjoy a family story time during the rest periods at 2:00 and 3:00 PM.
