Thank You Ridge Tool!

Craig Sumner President Professional Tools, Ridge Tool in Elyria (and an Avon Lake resident) hosted North Coast Rotarians for an informative tour throughout their facilities. While in their theater-style auditorium we learned about Ridgid’s history beginning in 1923 and their growth into a worldwide operation through their parent company Emerson.  Director of Marketing Becky Brotherton, Plant Manager Joe Hofferth, Quality Manager Dave Resor and Business Unit Manager Jackie Marsh answered questions and took us through the plant.  We were amazed by the automated robotic processes, the exceptionally clean and brightly lit facility and their advanced safety equipment.  Ridge Tool is a valued company in our region and a premier employer and we appreciated the opportunity to visit and tour.

Celebrating with more than 1000 cities in 120 countries around the world, musicians, musical groups, singers, and performers entertained guests at Veteran’s and Bleser Park on Make Music Day Avon Lake on June 21st the summer solstice.  Despite temperatures in the mid-90’s people of all ages gathered to enjoy the multitude of performances at locations including the Bleser main stage, the porch of the Folger house, the grassy areas outside the ball fields, and the gazebo. Make Music Day Avon Lake was the inspiration of Marilyn Zeidner, Executive Director of Music on a Mission and co-founder of Project DREW.  For the 2022 event, North Coast Rotary assisted Marilyn in planning, organizing, marketing, fundraising and staffing. Read more here –  Make Music Day Avon Lake!
