    it is home to the Mentor ice arena, Civic Center and President Garfield's house. Mentor also provides residents with many places to dine and socialize such as Outback Steakhouse or Davitinoes. Not only does Mentor provide activities for adults and teenagers but the city provides attractions such as Chuck E Cheeses and Busy Bees for children to enjoy.

    engage the difficult stories, the unique stories, the many stories that exist around us. God is active in so many of these stories, but unless we connect to the pulsating life-force of these stories, we will remain dead. Inactive. Disengaged. Courage is requisite in being open to hear the stories of God’s creation. However, even more courage is required to humbly acknowledge the mistakes and pain of the past – to take that pain and use it to bring about restoration. President James A.…

He gained the nomination for presidency by popular vote despite not officially being in the running, and he was awarded the presidency against the democratic nominee using the same unexpected means.
