ABOUT THE MUSIC:

About The Kent Shindig All Stars:

String band/old-time/mountain music.  The Kent Shindig , one of the only regular old-time music and dance jam sessions in northeast Ohio, was started in 1997 by Chardon clog dancer and musician Laura Lewis, as a way to keep Appalachian music and dance alive in our area. Anywhere from 6 to 20 musicians will make it to the performance.  A sample can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6rOxEgNC8U&fmt=18

Downtown Kent Historical Highlights:

CITY BANK ANTIQUES: http://www.citybankantiques.com/

In August 1995, Don and Karen Barrett opened City Bank Antiques in the original, 1911 City Bank Building in Kent, Ohio. Don is an expert in the repair of American pocket watches. It was inevitable that their hobby would someday develop into a business, which Karen, a former librarian, now manages. Their store offers a variety of antique clocks as diverse as cuckoo and school house regulators to grandfather clocks and pinwheel regulators. The Barretts are proud to be official Chelsea Clock dealers, the “timekeepers of the sea” and the last great American clock company.

In September 2005, Don and Karen showcased their expanded shop which now encompasses the entire original City Bank Building and occupies more than 1850 square feet of first floor retail space. When it comes to antique pocket watches, City Bank Antiques is one of the largest retailers in the state.

The Role of the Kent Historical Society

The role of our historical society in the community has grown over the years. We now bring educational programs to schools, businesses, and civic organizations, as well as collaborate with community groups on projects such as the preservation of our historic Pioneer Cemetery, the Main Street Kent revitalization program, and historic preservation projects in the community.

We are dedicated to documenting Kent history through artifacts, records, and documents from the people of our community, our living history.

In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru, planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon. (Yes, the moon!) Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. The world's greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.
