A celebration of love and support of children

The Butterfly Walk & 5K attracts more than 1500 families with young children every year. This event raises money for pediatric cancer research all the while providing support and awareness to children and families currently fighting this disease and to remember loved ones who have lost their battle.

butterflywalk-logoInspired by the spirit of one child’s fight with cancer, a community of friends has come together to help spread awareness and to support families facing similar battles. The Butterfly Walk and Fun Festival will bring together people and businesses who want to share in the celebration of love and support of children. Similar to how a caterpillar changes into a butterfly, that transformation is symbolic of a child’s development into an adult. This is something not all children with cancer have the chance to experience. But together, we can make a difference. Every day physicians are fighting to help children with cancer live another day. Curing childhood cancer is not a battle won overnight. But with the support of people like YOU, together we can help further the research towards treating and curing this disease, forever.

Brush must be placed at the curb no later than Sunday night

Loveland, Oh. – The spring brush pick-up program will begin on Monday, March 16, and will run for five weeks. Brush must be placed at the curb no later than Sunday night of the scheduled week of each collection. The following will be our schedule for brush pick-up:

Week of March 16 Area of the City that has a Monday trash pick-up.

Week of March 30 Area of the City that has a Wednesday trash pick-up.

Week of April 6 Area of the City that has a Thursday trash pick-up.

Week of April 13 Area of the City that has a Friday trash pick-up.

The following are guidelines established for the brush pick-up program:

  1. Limbs cannot exceed 10” in diameter at the cut section.
  2. Small twigs and sticks should be bundled with twine in bundles 12” in diameter. Twigs or sticks can also be placed in a container at the curb, but no other yard waste should be in the containers. Please, no loose piles of sticks and debris.
  3. Limbs should be placed at the curb with the cut section facing the street and all limbs should be facing the same direction. This makes it easier and faster to handle.
  4. Brush must be placed at the curb or edge of roadway. Do NOT place brush in the roadway, gutter, ditches, or on sidewalks. Do NOT block fire hydrants.
  5. No leaves, pine needles, grass clippings, or other yard waste will be collected.

Located in the heart of the Historic Loveland District

Just outside Cincinnati, Ohio, Paxton’s Grill is housed in one of the town’s oldest buildings and is adjacent to the Little Miami Scenic Bike Trail. 

We’re located at

126 W. Loveland Ave., Loveland, OH.


Our Story

Although Loveland Ohio was named after the first Postmaster and early shopkeeper James Loveland, the area’s first settler was Colonel Thomas Paxton. Born in Pennsylvania in 1739, Paxton moved to Kentucky in 1790. After having the opportunity to observe the beauty of the Little Miami River landscape, Paxton travelled North and in 1795 settled in the area now known as Loveland.

During the Revolutionary War, Thomas Paxton served as Lieutenant Colonel of the Second Battalion of the Bedford County Militia. In 1777, Thomas Paxton ate Christmas dinner at Valley Forge with General George Washington and other illustrious military personnel, such as the Marquis de Lafayette and Alexander Hamilton.

Thomas Paxton is acknowledged for being the first to build a log cabin in the area. He died in 1813 and was buried in the family graveyard on the farm where he built his first cabin.

Thirty-five years later, Colonel William Ramsey, a land speculator, laid out the town of Paxton, which was partially bordered by the Little Miami Railroad. A few years later, Ramsey laid out the town of Loveland, which adjoined the town of Paxton. Due to residents frequent stops at James Loveland’s General Store, the name Loveland caught on and in 1863, Paxton officially became Loveland and new boundaries were established.

Paxton’s Grill is housed in one of Loveland’s oldest buildings, built approximately the same time that the town of Paxton became Loveland. In January 2000, a few locals saw the need for a family friendly establishment and purchased this historic building with the goal of providing good food at reasonable prices in a comfortable setting.

We welcome you to Paxton’s Grill and are proud to pay homage to Thomas Paxton and his early contributions to what is now called the Historic Loveland District.

The first fund-raiser Power Ryde held for the Norton family was so successful they are doing it again.

On February 25, Power Ryde and the Loveland Athletic Boosters raised over $1,400.00, and Dylan, Tara (Seniors at Loveland High School who lost their father recently) and their mom, Michelle, all rode in one of the spin classes.

Meg Hilmer said, “We are going to do another fundraiser at Power Ryde for the Nortons on Saturday, March 14.  This time we are going to offer 4 classes at Power Ryde. It’s important that people sign up if they want to ‘ryde’ in one, or multiple classes.” She add however, “It will be more of a party atmosphere this time so people can just hang out during classes. People can come just to support the Nortons, they don’t have to spin.”

Hilmer is working with Rich Myklebust, the Loveland Athetics Booster’s vice-presidet who has recruited Dickey’s BBQ to provide food.

Loveland, Oh. – Charges have been filed in connection with the burglary that occurred at the Loveland Middle School on February 5. Cash was stolen. A 27 year-old male was charged with one count of burglary, a second degree felony.

Just after midnight on Thursday, February 20, Loveland Sergeant Kevin Corbett observed a man walk into the Speedway station on Loveland Madeira Road wearing a jacket that looked very similar to the one seen in video taken at the school during the robbery. This information was passed along toLoveland Detective Steve Moster

Moster was able to secure a search warrant and recovered the jacket and other evidence from the suspect’s residence. He was also charged with several drug violations by Hamilton County Sheriff’s deputies who assisted in the search warrant.
