Matowitz is the perfect person to discuss prominent Mentor families like the Garfields, landmarks like the Wildwood Estate, and more. But he also has a mindful of spectacular Mentor stories that nearly nobody else knows.
You can hear some of Matowitz’s rare and untold stories during a special program at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 20, at our Main Branch. The talk is free to attend and open to all. We only ask that you can register beforehand. You can sign up by calling us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 247.

Also, Tom Todd, the Amazing One Man Band, will perform from 6 to 7 pm. Bring your lawn chairs or blankets, sit back and enjoy a little bit of Jimmy Buffett. We will also have cake and contests. All are welcome and no registration is required for our party.
