- Memories and Moments Travel
- Mother Rising Women’s Studio
Thank you to our local non-profit organizations for joining us:

Thank you to Officer Shaw of the Chardon Police Department for his service (and for helping out the boys in the tug-o-war).
Thank you to Stacy Alan of Balloon Party Pals for her great balloon art, and Dominic “DJ Dom” Ferrante for providing music and emcee services.
Thank you to the City of Chardon staff members who assisted with the dunk tank, sandboxes, traffic management, trash cans, and all of the other details that helped us run a successful event.
Thank you to the Chardon teachers who donated their time (and body temperature) to be in the dunk tank: Shalyn Swick, Becky Mele, Catie Montagna, Jackie Brown, Angie Beckman, Carrie Stewart, Robyn Lannon and Ed Mullaly.
Thank you to our Chardon Square Association member volunteers: Tom, Dennis, Bill, Melissa, Dan and Matt.
Thank you to our student volunteers: Amy, Christian, Hannah, Olivia, Kaylie and Tori.
Thank you to Mother Nature for holding off the rain until after 3:00.
Last but not least, we would like to extend a very special thank you to Chardon Square Association president Heather Hudson Means, who did an absolutely fantastic job of organizing and running the entire event. Rumor has it that she even took time out to break some boards at one of the martial arts booths. Her many hours of hard work and dedication are greatly appreciated! If you agree, be sure to stop by Circa on the square to see her and say hello!
