March 2013

We had the 5th Annual Tree Tapping Ceremony at the Burton Log Cabin & Sugar Camp on Saturday, February 16. there was a good turnout of people to experience what it is like to tap a tree. Thanks to Mike Blair and the crew for tapping all the trees. Now we are in for the hard work, collecting the sap and the countless hours; for all of these guys and gals, of boiling down the sap. Great job.

All you can eat pancakes will be at the Berkshire High School, put on by the Burton/Middlefield Rotary. They also have omelets.

There will also be apple and blueberry pancakes at Century Village Museum.

And pancakes at the Burton Fire Dept and American Legion.

Please see the newspapers for detailed times and menu options.

This is also the time for the Maple Madness driving tour sponsored by the Ohio Maple Producers Association. (March 9th, 10th, 16th and 17th) There are 42 stops on the tour and, of course, the cabin is one of the hub stops. Visit the website for details. www.ohiomaple.org

Notes from Marie:

Last month’s meeting was at Kent State University/Geauga.  Attendance was 40 guests. It was catered by the Dutch Family Restaurant. They served their famous prime rib and it was spectacular!!!! The dinner included TOSSED SALAD,ROLLS & BUTTER, PRIME RIB (1 SALMON), SMASHED REDSKINS, GREEN BEANS ALMONDINE, cheese cake, COFFEE SERVICE,HOT TEA, ICED TEA, BOTTLED WATER. Guests are still raving about the prime rib and how perfectly it was done. Everything was delicious right down to the last green bean. I wonder how many Chamber members have been in Dutch Family Restaurant since the meeting…. looking for another delicious prime rib dinner.

From Kent we heard from Dean Mohan and also Denise who is working on the 50 year anniversary of the Geauga branch. Denise explained how the Chamber had a large role, financially and practically in helping get the KSU, Geauga County Campus started.  More information to come in next year’s Discover Burton brochure.  We also heard from Doug Hansel of The Glass Gallery or also known as LocallyBlownGlass.com. Doug told a great story of how he went to Kent main campus and changed his whole career path from architect to the blown glass industry. Doug also told how his in laws from Pittsburgh know all about Burton because we send our brochures to Pittsburgh. It was a great meeting, speakers, food and all.
