Lakewood Historical Society Prepares for 2022 Sales Events: A Place in the Sun
LAKEWOOD, Ohio — Is your New Year’s resolution to declutter your home? If so, and if you’re looking for a way to make a difference with your useless or unwanted items, the Lakewood Historical Society may have the answer.
Each year the company collects household items, sorts and evaluates them, then stores them until they are needed for one of their annual fundraising sales.
The first deposit event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on January 29 at the Haber Center, 13314 Detroit Ave., Lakewood. The Haber Center serves as the company’s headquarters and is located across from the historic Nicholson House, one of the properties the company maintains.
Some of the items the company will accept include:
Lightly used kitchen and household items, tablecloths, curtains and rugs
Decorative objects such as vases, dishes, lamps and works of art
Craft supplies and holiday decorations
Crystal, sterling silver, furs, watches, clocks, costume and fine jewelry
Due to limited space, society officials are requesting that furniture donations be postponed until closer to May.
Tax donation letters are available for donations.
Item sales, which occur periodically throughout the year, benefit the Lakewood Historical Society’s mission by providing educational programs for all ages, providing stewardship of artifacts and buildings, and advocating for the historic community.

Snow Warriors: Kudos to LakewoodAlive for once again organizing a team of volunteers and staff to help clear driveways and sidewalks after recent snow storms. More than 70 driveways and sidewalks were cleared after the first heavy snowfall of the season on January 16.
More volunteers are needed for the snow removal program. LakewoodAlive officials said the plan is to connect neighbors with neighbors in need to make it as convenient as possible to help those who can’t get out and tackle snow removal themselves.
Anyone interested in volunteering for LakewoodAlive’s snow shoveling program should contact Matt Clark at 216-521-0655 or email Clark at [email protected]
Save this date: The West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church will perform the classic 1924 silent film “Peter Pan,” featuring WSUUC Music Director David Blazer on the organ at 4 p.m. Feb. 20. All ages are invited to the free program which will be shown on the big screen. .
This is the first film adaptation of JM Barrie’s 1904 play directed by Herbert Brenon. The film closely follows the plot of the original play and even incorporates much of the original scene dialogue into the intertitles. Added scenes include Nana the dog pouring Michael’s medicine and giving him a bath, and Nana breaking into the house where a party is being held, to warn Mr. and Mrs. Darling that Peter Pan and the Darling children are flying around the nursery . Like the original play, and unlike the 1953 Disney film, the 1924 version makes it clear that Wendy harbors a romantic attachment to Peter, but Peter only sees her as his mother.
The event is open to the public and will take place at the Church Sanctuary, 20401 Hilliard Blvd., Rocky River.
Due to church Covid 19 protocols, masks must be worn in the building by anyone aged 3 and over.
For more information, call the church office at 440-333-2255.
Founded in 1946, West Shore is the largest UU church in northeast Ohio, with over 500 members. This year the congregation celebrates the 75th anniversary of the jubilee. Church officials have said its mission is to help people lead meaningful and purposeful lives through a liberal faith tradition based on the principle that people do not need to think.
