Hasn’t this been a great summer? People smiling, hugging, gathering at events like Friday Night Live again, the Comedy Show, traveling – just enjoying the simple joy of seeing faces without masks. We live in such a great community – we’ve got the annual Car Show coming back, the Pancake Breakfast, a bicycle fundraiser going on right now for Second Life Bicycle Rescue, the Fire Safety Expo, back to school, Oktoberfest, the Vineyard Races and so much more. You’ll find details for these events and more in this issue. And thank you to our local Cloverdale service clubs who do so much for all of us. We wouldn’t have such a great community without you.

As always, a big thank you to the entire Cloverdale community for the success of Cloverdale Connect. Here are just a few of the recent reader comments that we have received: “Such a wonderful thing this is. It’s really a good read. We look forward to it every month.” “Love having a local newspaper back in the community. Love everything about Cloverdale Connect.” “Love this paper!”.

I’ll see you around town!
