One of the nicest things about a small town is the way people can get to know their neighbors and become close friends, simply by spending time together in shared activities and pursuits.

Each is happy to have newcomers join their ranks. And as for our local attractions, like the Canal Towpath, Medina Falls, and Swallow Hollow, well-there's a reason we put up with our long winters.

The events calendar is what One Stop Medina's all about. The seed was planted at an Orleans Renaissance meeting in the summer of 2013. Frustrated while trying to figure out the best date for an upcoming concert, a member bemoaned, "I wish there was one place we could go to find everything! A community calendar of some kind...then maybe we wouldn't double book when something else was going on!"
From that small kernel, One Stop Medina was born. Practically everyone we know is involved and active across a very wide spectrum, from their businesses, to their social groups, to their churches, to their kids' activities. Imagine a storekeeper who belongs to a church and a book club, whose children are involved in Scouts and Marching Band. Where to go to post all the upcoming events, especially the ones she wants others to attend, like a fundraiser carwash, an open-to-all church picnic, and an upcoming Thursday night sale?
Now there's one place to go. One Stop Medina's Events Calendar. And here's the very best part: Anyone can enter any event, for FREE, and there you go: One stop. All of us know.View the Events Calendar
