Happy July! I hope you enjoyed the 4th of July in Euclid. I love being a part of several neighborhood celebrations that include parades, picnics, activities and games, but mostly they provide the opportunity to get together with family, friends and neighbors. Special congratulations to the Shore Haven Club (E. 219th Street) as they celebrate 100 years as a street association this year! This is one small street that has worked to bring their neighbors together to build strong neighborhood bonds and connections. Family members join in, former residents come back and current residents proudly welcome all! The pride in being part of this street and community is evident.
Thank you to the many Euclid residents and lakefront property owners from surrounding communities who joined City Officials on June 12th for an informational meeting on Lakefront Erosion.
The old has been made new! The City of Euclid once had a very strong Kiwanis Club. You may recall attending some of the great community events sponsored by Kiwanis such as the Annual Corn Roast or Pancake Breakfast, or you may have even been a member at some point. No matter what your involvement was, Kiwanis has had a blanket positive influence on so many Euclid residents in the past. What has been made new, you ask? Well, Kiwanis is back and ready to revitalize our club!

Are you frustrated or exhausted because you’ve tried “everything” and still can’t get breakthrough results? During these challenging times don’t get caught in a self-spiral that feeds blame. Blaming is a consuming attitude. When you cast blame, it wraps you and anyone else involved in blankets of doubt and fear. When relationships are contaminated with blame and shame, they spin and wobble and become loosely formed. Situations become conditional. Trust unravels. Stop doing what is not working before it’s too late. Instead, take a deep cleansing breath and make a radical shift to think and speak in gratitude. Turn your situation upside down by taking on a different perspective. Change your atmosphere and you can change your outcomes.

Evening Book Discussion: Becoming by Michelle Obama
On Wednesday, June 5, 2019, torrential rain began at 7:00 in the morning. Alas, this was the day my wife and were to host a “Wednesday on the Porch”. By 5pm the rain was still pouring, and my wife said, “Well, I guess I’d better put these sandwiches up for another day”. Lo and behold, at 6:45pm the rain suddenly stopped, and the sun emerged. We both thought no one will come now, seeing as how the event was to begin at 7pm. At exactly at 7pm, we saw several of our neighbors walking down the street with dishes in hand. By 7:30 our backyard, which was very soggy, was happily filled with several neighbors. We ate, drank and socialized until after 9:00.

Four years ago, Create-A-Craft owner Eileen Sheehan turned the key to her studio, flipped on the lights, opened the windows, and welcomed her first day of guests. Since then, locals have come into the studio to discover themselves through creativity and self-expression. Offerings like paint your own pottery and canvas painting allow even the most inexperienced artists to create something unique. Visiting artists have come to the studio to teach their craft as well; needle felting, succulent planting, jewelry making, advanced painting, collage, along with a myriad of other fine arts and craft classes, have shaped the studio into the creative hub that it is today. Artists Angela Michelle of SooCrafty Creations and Amy Bennett of pARTners Project Studio share the studio space as well, offering specialized craft classes as well as provide a studio for adult artists with Autism, respectively.
Our first meeting in February did not give me any warning this was going to be a year of new experiences during the E. 200th Street Stroll. Just when I thought the 13 year old Stroll had run its course, I became reenergized with new relationships, more participants, and words of encouragement from unexpected people. Thank you for being with me on this journey!
