Heights groups need volunteers and donated items

Coventry P. E.A.C.E. Park cleanup Oct. 6

Volunteers are needed for fall clean-up day at Coventry P. E.A.C.E. Park on Saturday, Oct. 6, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., rain or shine. Help clean up the park, garden and make repairs. Garden and repair tools, and garden gloves, will be provided. Bring your own knee pads for kneeling. Coffee and light snacks will be available also.

Coventry P. E.A.C.E Park is the playground at the former Coventry Elementary School in Cleveland Heights. It was built in 1993 using funds raised and donated by area residents. Coventry P. E.A.C.E., the volunteer organization that cares for the park, hosts a twice yearly clean-up and maintenance event.

League of Women Voters needs volunteers to cover University Heights City Council meetings

Fairfax seeks library volunteers

Fairfax Elementary School is seeking retired librarians or others with library experience to help as volunteers in the school library. If you are interested, contact Andrett Calloway, principal, at 216-371-7480 or a_calloway@chuh.org.

Fairfax wants your college pennants

The school welcomes donations of college and university pennants, to foster student interest in the many options available for their higher education and to support the "culture of college." If you don't have a college pennant on hand, please consider ordering one from a college. If you like, you may include a brief note of encouragement to students, and provide your name to be displayed with the pennant. This is an opportunity for community members to demonstrate their support of the children's efforts and aspirations. Duplicate pennants received will be shared with other interested CH-UH schools.

Fairfax needs clothes for costumes

Fairfax Elementary is also seeking donations of old T-shirts, men's dress shirts or pillowcases for a costume-making table at its Fall Harvest Festival. Drop them off during school hours at Fairfax Elementary by Oct, 16. For information, call or e-mail Joan Spoerl at 216-371-3753 or joanspoerl@sbcglobal.net.

Fairfax Elementary is located at 3150 Fairfax Road in Cleveland Heights.
