Furry Paws and Fancy Stuff now open

“The grand opening of Marblehead’s newest place to pamper your pet has opened with a flourish thanks to The Marblehead Peninsula Chamber of Commerce,” said owner Cheri Cunningham. She has been grooming dogs and cats since March 6 at the storefront located in the Cube Smart Strip Mall located between Canoe Club Restaurant and Fort Firelands at 5681 E. Harbor Road. 
“Neighboring businesses have been very kind and supportive,” said Cunningham, “I can’t say enough kind words about Iris at Golden I Jewelry and Design and Jeanette Cox in the Cube Smart Office. The Peninsula Chamber goes out of its way to publicize and spread the word about any effort to enhance shopping and convenience here in the area.”


Kids head to summer camp on Kelleys Island

Did you realize you can go to camp on an island? You can! Each summer, youth from across the state travel to this camp which is located on Kelleys Island. Did you realize youth do NOT need to be 4-H members to attend 4-H camp? It’s true!
Organized camping is more than mosquito bites and soggy tennis shoes. Camp is an important “learning laboratory” where children develop life skills, such as responsibility, decision making, getting along with others, cooperation, leadership and increased self-esteem.
