Sheffield Area News In Brief




Johnny Appleseed


The following letter was received at the township office. “Sheffield A little bit of Heaven” in God’s Country. I wanted to tell Sheffield thank you for such a great Johnny Appleseed Festival. This is the first time we have seen the lanterns on their way to Heaven. What a beautiful sight and memory forever. I feel that our love ones received their lanterns from this wonderful town. When our 5 kids were small in the ’60s we camped at Hearts Content. We started coming to your festivals brining our kids and then our grankids and now our great grandkids. We were very upset when they stopped for a while. Now they are even bigger and better. We have owned property up the hill since ’92 and know that our families will continue to visit Sheffield forever! Thanks for all the work you do in your little bit of Heaven in God’s Country. The Beekers, Lane and Clara of Fremont, Ohio.

The festival had a banner year! A complete successThank you to all our sponsors, competitors, vendors both crafters and food all our volunteers (too numerous to list) especially the volunteers who put this event together year after year for the community of Sheffield.

Road bonding discussed

Sheffield Township Supervisors, road crew and chief of police met with Michele Morningstar, Matt Vibrail and Jon Wilson of PennDOT to review the process of road bonding in the township.
