†NEW†† Lorain County Wireless Notification System
Lorain County recently implemented a wireless emergency notification system

Penfield is part of K.E.Y.
Many of you may have seen the news release about K.E.Y. (Keystone
Empowers You).† The goal of the KEY
Collaborative is to increase access to physical activity and healthy foods
leading to a Keystone School District community where the healthy choice is
the easiest choice for seniors, school-aged children, parents, adults, and
individuals who work for a Keystone community employer.†
While it references the Keystone School District, itís only connection
is that it is using the school district to define the geographical area
that the collaboration entails.
Some of the projects that stem from KEY, that you might notice, will be
healthier choices at the concession stands and improvements to the Penfield
walking trail at the recreation park.
