Sheffield Lake council member at large
Sheffield Lake has a great community center where we’ve been hosting morning coffee with seniors. While it initially had to be postponed during COVID, we just started back on Monday mornings.
Our library sits right on the lake with big picture windows looking out over the water. The number of things the library does for our community is unbelievable.
We have a fantastic lakefront. Even if you don’t boat or use Jet Skis, just sitting on the swings and looking out over the water is magnificent. It has beautiful sunsets and beautiful sunrises.
For as small as it is, Sheffield Lake lost many young men in the Vietnam War. I remember how many times residents would get quiet because they saw a government vehicle pulling into the city.
The neighbors on each side of my mom got those dreaded notifications. The whole community pulled together so tight during that time.
If you live in a city, it’s worth coming here just to relax. Sheffield Lake doesn’t have all the congestion and hustle and bustle that you see in big communities.
We have a gorgeous veterans park that was redone a few years back. It memorializes all the veterans from Sheffield Lake. My family has a lot of veterans, so it’s a nice place to sit and remember.
