View Image Gallery

The Memorial Park Community Garden (MPCG) came to life in 2011 through the efforts of a group of dedicated residents, the City of Euclid, OSU Extension Service, and Cuyahoga County Board of Health. We now have 37 gardens beds, and plans for more. Our mission is to provide Euclid residents of all ages and abilities a space in which they can produce nutritious food for themselves and their community, in harmony with nature.

MPCG is not just about helping individuals to have a great gardening space in Euclid, we are dedicated to being active in the community including educational programs and hunger outreach. MPCG requires garden members to donate 10% of their crops to the Euclid Hunger Center (EHC). We have two 100 sq. ft. garden beds dedicated to the hunger center with plans for expansion. MPCG also partners with the Euclid Fruit Harvest Project in the fall to collect hundreds of pounds of fruit.

Euclid Book Sale Back to Old Time and Place


Browsers on Friday night
View Image Gallery

With library renovations finished, the semiannual Friends of the Euclid Public Library book sale is back on track, at its regular time--the last full weekend of April–and its regular place–all of the meeting rooms off the gallery at Euclid Public Library, 631 E. 222nd St. If you don't know where it is, look for the tank--it's a war memorial--in front of it.

Plans call for Friday, April 25, to be Members' Night, when members of the Friends can come and shop from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The library itself is closed Friday nights; only the sale rooms will be open. Non-members may sign up at the door.

On April 26, the doors open at 9:00 a.m. and close at 4:00 p.m. This is usually the best time to shop; there's room to breathe (Friday night tends to be crowded) and a good selection.

Sunday, April 27, is Bag Day. For $2.00, you buy a grocery bag to fill. Amazingly, there is usually more than enough left to make the bag a huge bargain.

From the desk of Mayor Bill Cervenik

Dear Friends:

          The definition of volunteering is a selfless activity intended to promote good or improve the quality of life for others. April is National Volunteer Month. If you would like to make a difference and give more, but don’t know exactly how to get started, all you have to do is ask. So many organizations and groups are in need of volunteers to give a helping hand or just a smile and a kind word. Volunteering doesn't have to be time consuming and can be according to your availability. Whether it be at a church, hospital, hunger center, in your neighborhood or at the animal shelter, every small task helps and adds up. Volunteering gives you an opportunity to change lives, including your own.

Spring is a great time for a new beginning by getting out and volunteering.  Now let’s all enjoy the beauty of spring.

Your Mayor,

Bill Cervenik

Longitudinal Care Center at Euclid Hospital focuses on long-term health

A new model of care is being introduced at Euclid Hospital, and it comes with a new name to go along with the new philosophy on which it is based: Longitudinal Care Center. The goal is to streamline and centralize care for patients and to improve quality and coordination, resulting in more efficient, less difficult encounters. This new Center puts patients in the middle of their care experience and helps the multiple providers caring for that patient communicate and collaborate more effectively. The Center is staffed by a team of professionals – physicians, nurse practitioners, RNs, clinical specialists, pharmacists and social workers.

Cleveland Clinic's Minority Men's Health Fair

You can discover your risk of developing prostate or colon cancer, learn how to quit smoking and prevent strokes, and gather all kinds of other health information at the 12th annual Cleveland Clinic's Minority Men's Health Fair.

Pi Makes School Fun



The sixth grade classes at Our Lady of the Lake School celebrated Pi day this year by working across the curriculum to get creative, apply and explore.  Working in cooperative groups, they measured the circumference and diameter of round objects to find Pi (3.14).  They used the first thousand numbers of Pi to create a stem and leaf plot.  They created as many words as they could that contained the letters "pi.”  (How many can you create? Test your wits against our students and see how you do!) Then they logged into their computers to create diamante poems about Pi. And, of course, they rounded off the day with a round treat!

Kindergarten Buddy Day Was a Learning Adventure



Twice each year, Our Lady of the Lake School Hosts an Open House for for preschoolers interested in learning more about quality kindergarten options.  The day is also especially fun, not only for the kindergarten students and their visitors, but also for the eighth grade student council students who come and plan special projects with them. This year’s project: building a leprechaun trap. While they had fun, they also learned STEM engineering processes in cooperative learning groups to design and construct “traps”, follow clues and find the pot of gold. What a wonderful day of exploring for our little ones, and for the senior students who show them that learning is fun!

Power of the Pen

 

            During the 2013-2014 school year Our Lady of the Lake students participated in the Power of the Pen competition.  Power of the Pen is not just a competition, but a writing approach that builds skills and enhances creative thinking.  Through this competition students build self-confidence, along with writing abilities.

            This year Our Lady of the Lake was proud to enter two teams into the competition, consisting of seventh and eighth grade students: Emily Kovacic, Khalid Mitcham, Jeri Huggins, Rachel O’Connell, Martin Hiti, Matthew McGinn, Lindsay DePenti, Winnie Kime, Karli DeChant, Elizabeth Smith, and Schenley Blase.  Mrs. Kish, Mrs. Millett, and Miss Zbiegien coached their talented team, meeting twice a week to prepare for the district competition.  Their hard work paid off: Khalid Mitcham won “Best of the Best” for his second round of writing titled “Small but Numerous,”  and, Emily Kovacic, Khalid Mitcham, Schenley Blase, and Karli DeChant all moved on to regionals.

Review of Fusion Fitness Training & Wellness from an Admitted Fitness Skeptic


Eric demonstrating one of his favorite torture techniques, the rope jiggle.

At Fusion Fitness Training & Wellness, Owner Eric Price looks the part of a personal trainer/gym owner, or at least that’s what I mused to myself the first I saw him. Thoughts about never judging a book by its cover aside, I was not particularly convinced anyone could get me into shape, but I at least wanted a beefy trainer that I could point to as evidence of my efforts.

Having been very active as a child, I was always in fairly good shape. Life, particularly graduate school got the better of me, and then I was not in that great of shape.  Having finished school and settled in a relatively consistent routine with my employer I realized I had run out of excuses.

Ask An Officer

Question:  There are adults and sometimes teenagers selling door-to-door in my neighborhood.  I don’t want them knocking on my door.  How can this be stopped? 

Answer from Officer Fred Stoldt, Patrol Division:  Door-to-door peddling and soliciting may be legally conducted within the City of Euclid and there are approximately 20 laws that address these requirements.

The first ordinance that would directly answer this question and should provide for your request would be ordinance - 757.13 Peddling Forbidden Where Sign Prohibits.  If you display in public view a sign which reads “No Peddlers”, “No Solicitors” or similar statements, even a lawfully permitted solicitor is forbidden to knock on your door or ring your bell.  Premade signs may be purchased through local retailers for a small cost and affix easily to your front door without being too obtrusive.
