Sheffield Lake Community News
“What’s happening in the Neighborhood?”
What is a community? According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary a community is:
- a unified body of individuals
- an interacting population of various kinds of individuals in a common location
- a body of persons having a common history or common social, economic, and political interests
That defines us, but how does a strong community translate these concepts into action? What does it take to be a truly “unified body of individuals,” one that strives to create a good, positive place in which to live and raise families? What does it mean to be “an interacting population,” and how does a healthy community acknowledge its diversity yet work together to address its “common social, economic, and political interests”?
We are a community with much to offer in terms of natural elements and access to places and people of interest. Most of us know our immediate neighbors and enjoy “communing” with them, but what of Sheffield Lake as a whole? What do we owe to and expect from our larger community?
The purpose of this space on our website is to be an aid to that interacting; to let the citizens of Sheffield Lake know what is going on, so we can help make our community more unified and interactive. With that in mind, please read our “Sheffield Lake Community News, What’s Going on in the Neighborhood.” It will change periodically, so be sure to come back to learn more as information is added!
