    1. Meeting at Historical Village
      7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      A lot has changed since the teacher called her students to a one-room schoolhouse with a bell she rang herself. Students would shuffle into the room, take their seats (youngest in front & oldest in back) and the daily lessons would commence. Each child had his or her slate for practicing arithmetic problems and, for the young ones, learning to form their letters first in print and then in cursive. Today busloads of students pull up to large buildings with multiple classrooms—some specialized like science labs and art rooms and students are using computers and tablets instead of slates.
      But some things never change! Each new school year begins with an air of expectation and the hope for a positive learning experience. Now that all the local children are back in school, why not take some time and visit the replica of Clermont’s very first school at the Historic Village, 490 West Ave.—not far from the Historic Downtown Shopping District. The Village is open every Saturday & Sunday from 1:00 to 4:00 PM and admission is free (a $2.00 donation per adult is requested). After listening to the teacher in the schoolhouse, you can also visit the five other buildings in the Village and even take a peek into an outhouse replica.
      If you are interested in history in general or the history of Lake County in particular, contact the South Lake County Historical Society by going to our website, ClermontVillage.org; by calling Roxanne Brown, Village Manager, at 352-593-8496; or by attending our membership meetings which are held on the second Monday of the month at 7:00 PM in the Train Depot in the Historic Village. The next meeting will be September 10. After touring the Village, please like us on Facebook.

    1. Walk to Support MADD
      8:00 am – 10:00 am

      Clermont Police Department will be hosting Lake County’s first Walk Like MADD 5K event for Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D) on, September 15, 2018, at 8 a.m., at Clermont’s Waterfront Park located at 100 3rd St., Clermont.
      M.A.D.D is an incorporation that is dedicated to aiding the victims of crimes performed by individuals driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Their mission includes aiding the families of such victims and help increase public awareness of the problem of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
      Walk Like MADD is the organization’s signature fundraising event to help raise both awareness and funds to eliminate drunk driving. Last year, tens of thousands of people in over 90 cities across the nation participated, and together raised over 3 million dollars to provide programs and services at no cost. With every step taken and each dollar raised, walkers are supporting MADD’s lifesaving mission to keep families and communities safe.
      “We are excited to bring MADD to Lake County,” said Officer Deborah Reasoner from the Clermont Police Department Traffic Unit. “I know we have victims and families that could benefit from their aid and services,” said Reasoner.
      “The Clermont Police Department encourages everyone to come out and show their support for such a worthy cause. We are very enthusiastic about our new partnership with MADD, and fully support their efforts in reducing impaired driving related fatalities,” stated Chief Charles Broadway.
      You can register to participate in the walk at www.walklikemadd.org. Check-in for walkers at the event will be at 7 am. Opening ceremony and remarks start at 8AM. The walk will begin at 8:30 AM. Vendor spots are still available. For information on how you can help, please contact Officer Deborah Reasoner at dreasoner@clermontfl.org
