wedding kiss outside the house

Little Brook Meadows is an elegant venue for weddings, reunions, corporate events and other gatherings. The former horse farm encompasses 50 acres of rolling hills, meadows and woods. This stunning central Ohio hidden gem is located just south of Lancaster. Originally it was part of the estate of the John Giesy family dating back to the late 1840's; the present structures were built in the late 1930's. The Southern Colonial style main house, while dramatic in its own right gives no indication of the spectacular interior which includes 6 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. The over 8,000 square foot house can accommodate up to 20 overnight guests.

 

the barn wedding

The stately barn is strategically situated on a hill adjacent to the house. The venue offers space for a wedding celebration for both the ceremony and reception, or for a multi-purpose event. The barn with its 20 original stalls has been discreetly renovated with a prep-area for a licensed caterer provided by the host, ADA restrooms, a bridal suite, photo stall, kids stall and a bar where a certified bartender can serve host supplied alcohol. An event coordinator is provided as well as parking attendants. With the diversity of beautiful locations on the estate there are multiple sites for a stunning backdrop for a wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and boundless photographic opportunities. 


wedding setup

The property was purchased in 2008 by Chris and Therese Ryckman who are no strangers to the Lancaster area, or the hospitality industry. For years, Therese owned and operated the popular Four Reasons Deli & Bakery in downtown Lancaster. In 2011 one of their daughters wanted to get married in the barn. Therese replied, “No way! Who gets married in a barn?” Daughters are often very persuasive, and her idea won out. The wedding was a huge success and it was obvious that the space had possibilities, and a new business was born! Both the house and the barn are available for your next event in one of the most unique locations in central Ohio and the Midwest.

Fairfield Growing book cover

 
Fairfield County has released an update of the Fairfield Growing local-food and agricultural economic development plan. Guided by a dozen farm and community leaders, the plan calls for investment in local processing and supply-chain infrastructure – which will create jobs, provide markets for locally produced farm products, and promote environmentally friendly agricultural practices. The 35-page report was produced for the county by Brian Williams of Local Nexus, with page-design donated by Crissy Devine of Web Chick.

A public release of the plan is scheduled on May 7 at the season-opening Lancaster Farmers Market, with a copy of the report and a swag bag given to the first 200 visitors. County Commissioner Jeff Fix, Lancaster Mayor David Scheffler, and others are among expected speakers at the event. With participation from many farmers, local government officials, and civic organizations such at the Chamber of Commerce and Visit Fairfield County, the plan seeks to make agriculture a prominent and visible part of the regional economy.

 

I am very excited to announce that we (WebChick.com) are changing our commerce platforms for our clients.

We recommend visiting VenomLures.com if you are looking to buy fishing lures. Web Chick has implemented a major overhaul of the online fishing-lure store which consists of 4,000 SKU's. It is now possible for Venom Lures to offer his clients express payment options such as PayPal, ApplePay, and Google Pay, (on your mobile device) but it can also accept orders with major credit cards. With these additional features, the website has become more user-friendly and provides a better e-commerce experience to clients.

Today, online commerce platforms are faster and provide better quality service.


My experience with two other commerce platforms I previously used did not meet my expectations when it came to the design and checkout process. The platform we discovered provides our client with better service in order confirmations, and with tracking of order information. The overall platform experience allows us to provide better service to our clients and their users. With several years of experience, Venom Lures has been dedicated to serving the clients of professional anglers, professional staff anglers, and performance anglers. Venom Lures is one of the leading fishing-lure manufacturers in the world today, with over 100 dealers selling its fishing lures at retail stores in the US and Canada. Venom Lures' soft plastics, tackle terminal tackle, swag clothing displaying the Venom Lures logo has become a popular item among fishermen over the years.


We have added a new feature for choosing the color of the fish lures. Color swatches can be used to change the color of the main photo image that appears on the screen once the color of the swatch has been selected.

It is worth mentioning that Fairfield County 2-1-1 is now collecting donations for the campaign.
https://www.fairfieldcounty211.org/donation-form.html

Also, you can visit the "Giving Tree" where you can view local businesses and individuals who have donated to the organization.

You can contribute to this cause simply by going online and making a donation to the absentee No-Show Gala at FairfieldCounty211.org. As their campaign slogan says, "No Show Gala" means you don't need to leave your house or change any of your lives for Fairfield County families in need. You can simply make a donation for this cause by going online.

giving tree ad


The Giving Tree, which is animated with donation cards displayed on the leaves when you mouse over the donation card appears, was designed and donated by me (WebChick) for a fundraising event. Due to the small size of the tree, the mobile version of the giving tree provides the user with a visual slideshow since the tree would be too small to reveal the cards.
