But first, today’s weather:

Partly sunny and warm. High: 73 Low: 54.

📢 I am looking for business owners and sellers in Avon-Avon Lake who want to create awareness, connect with customers and increase sales.

I have a limited number of sponsorships available to introduce our Avon-Avon Lake Daily readers to the local businesses they need to know about. If that’s you, then I invite you to learn more and secure your spot now.

Here are today’s top stories at Avon-Avon Lake:

  2. And the winners have been chosen! The Avon Garden Club recently presented its Beautification Awards. According to cleveland.com, “Ivana Rose took home an award for the landscaping work she did on her condo. She said that people commented on the four very large pots placed in each corner of her garden. She also has a “cozy front porch,” as she calls it, with wicker chairs, ferns, and flower boxes. Her floral preferences include geraniums and black-eyed Susans, as well as other flowers that complement her red wicker porch chairs. Tracy Adams, winner in the category of houses 20 years old or less, He noted that he had to uproot everything in his yard when he bought his house, because the landscaping “wasn’t good.” She planted everything new. “My vice is flowers,” she said. “They bring joy to my heart, and I like to cut them up and pass them on to others, like neighbors and teachers. That’s how it’s shared.” The entire Adams yard, front and back, “is always ready,” she said. She loves the color and adds a little more to her yard every year.” Congratulations to the winners! Keep up the beauty of our community with your flowers! (Cleveland.com)
  3. Will it happen again? That’s the question on the local football fan list as Thanksgiving weekend approaches and the state semifinals are almost here. According to cleveland.com, “For four of the last five years, Avon and Archbishop Hoban have met in the state semifinals. That could happen again, or the OHSAA could renew their semifinal matchups, should they both make it to Thanksgiving weekend. Avon is seeking a sixth consecutive state semifinal, seeking its first state championship berth since 2011. Hoban has become Northeast Ohio’s most decorated program of the past decade, winning five state crowns since 2015.” We’ll keep you posted! (cleveland.com)
