SUMMER VACATION IS ALMOST OVER
CHAGRIN SCHOOLS OPENED
AUGUST 19th

As summer comes to a close, drivers attention should be redirected from children riding their bikes and playing ball to walking to the street corner to catch the school bus and at days end, returning to home.

Many bus routes only pickup and drop off students at intersections, one stop, rather than traveling the entire side streets with multiple stops. Drivers should be aware of intersection bus stops. Students awaiting the bus and parents who shuttle children by vehicle to the stop should keep the intersection clear for traffic. Through traffic including larger vehicle (such as for garbage collection) must be able to clear the intersection freely. Additional traffic (pre and post school hours) with many newer or first year drivers will be present on the roadways.

Special awareness needs to be noted at these bus stops as the daylight get shorter, with inclement weather changes and as a prelude to the winter season and road conditions.

Awareness and slower driving practices will prevent an incident before it happens. DRIVE SAFELY!

NO PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC ON BELL ROAD


South Russell Village and the Bell Road Improvement Contractor are asking residents to avoid using Bell Road as a “Pedestrian Route”.


During the construction phase of the installation of the new storm sewers on Bell Road, work will continue on one side of the roadway and traffic will be maintained on the other.
Materials, the operation of heavy equipment and trucks and general vehicle traffic will be in the area leaving no room for pedestrian traffic. Even during non-working hours and weekends, limited space will be available for pedestrian traffic. Pedestrians should avoid the area if at all possible. You will have plenty of time to walk and ride in a much safer situation once the project is completed.

South Russell ~ Show Your Colors

Each year since 1989, a group of volunteer residents from the Village of South Russell have proudly decorated the village in the red, white and blue.

We need your help to continue this grand tradition.

Flags are flown from the utility poles on Bell Road,East Washington Street and Chillicothe Road.

The first season is early summer when flags are raised for the Memorial Day, Flag Day and Independence Day holidays. Flags are then removed and raised in the last week in August for the Labor Day holiday. They are stored till late fall and raised for Election Day and Veteran's Day. After November 11th the flags are removed, as weather permits, for winter storage.

The flags have flown on other occasions and special situations.

Extreme weather conditions take a toll on the flags and the poles.

Flags, poles and hardware are purchased through private donations of the village residents and other patriotic Americans.
A flag and hardware costs $20.00.

Show your pride in this great country by purchasing a flag
to be flown in the village.

Please send donations to:
S.R.- Show Your Colors
South Russell Village Hall
5205 Chillicothe Road
South Russell, Ohio 44022

Your help is also needed by volunteering to proudly raise the flags for the summer, August 25th through the 30th, and fall,October 21st - 29th.

Volunteering is a great way to meet other patriotic neighbors.

Please contact the chairman,
Pete Moissis at 440.823.2199 if you can help.
