Chardon, Ohio - Culture


Chardon is known for its maple syrup industry. Celebration of the syrup season begins at Tapping Sunday in March, when the sap is at prime thawing temperature. The annual Geauga County Maple Festival is a four-day celebration that takes place on the Chardon Square the last weekend in April. The festival has been rescheduled numerous times because of snowstorms in April due to Chardon’s location in the “snow belt” and large amount of snowfall every year. Chardon has an active performance art community including work done by the Geauga Lyric Theater Guild, housed in the renovated Geauga theater building, which used to house an old movie theater, and which has begun to show first-run movies again. Greater Chardon features a large number of golf courses. Chardon Lakes Golf Course is located in the heart of Chardon, two minutes from the Chardon square. Sand Ridge Golf Club in nearby Munson Township is also an excellent golf course. Chardon has an abundance of park space. Due largely to the area's wide variety of weather conditions, citizens in the area can enjoy a wide variety of hobbies throughout the year.

Famous quotes containing the word culture:

    I am writing to resist the view that Europe and civilization are going to Hell. If I am being “crucified for an idea”Mthat is, the coherent idea around which my muddles accumulated—it is probably the idea that European culture ought to survive, that the best qualities of it ought to survive along with whatever cultures, in whatever universality. Against the propaganda of terror and the propaganda of luxury, have you a nice simple answer?
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    The purpose of education is to keep a culture from being drowned in senseless repetitions, each of which claims to offer a new insight.
    Harold Rosenberg (1906–1978)

    Culture is the suggestion, from certain best thoughts, that a man has a range of affinities through which he can modulate the violence of any master-tones that have a droning preponderance in his scale, and succor him against himself. Culture redresses this imbalance, puts him among equals and superiors, revives the delicious sense of sympathy, and warns him of the dangers of solitude and repulsion.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
