This is my first year for all the ECPAAA events, but our organization has done the holiday meal for many years. Traditionally it was done at Christmas, but with the influx of food given as gifts during the Christmas season, the meal was moved to the 4th of July.
This year we held our annual holiday meal on Thursday, the 2nd of July and Saturday, the 4th of July. The meals are spread out over two non-consecutive days to allow as many officers as possible to partake.
Dedicated, caffeinated volunteers arrived at the police department at 5 am. The breakfast shift ran from 6 am until 9:30 am and lunch and dinner from 2 pm until 5:30 pm. All meal supplies and decorations for the roll call room are donated by the ECPAAA or members of the group independently.
A handful of people fried bacon and sausage, made pancakes and waffles, fresh fruit salad and hot egg strata were a few of the choices available for breakfast. Lunch included pulled pork, mashed potato salad, deli sliders, macaroni salad, crudité, and fresh caught and fried on the spot Lake Erie Walleye. There were also various desserts.
We fed all the members of the Euclid Police Department and the corrections officers from the jail. Everyone was sure to show their gratitude and appreciation. It's funny, when you cook bacon, people are just nicer.
The ECPAAA set up, ran, and cleaned up this entire event. Terri Zakraysek, Jean Schoeniger, Jen Wolford, Guy Wolford, Denny Brown, Peggy Owens, Jason Owens, Colleen Kendel, Melissa Horvath, Krystal Kaminski, Bob Ayers, Carl Lake, Bonnie Gallon, Ryan Cederlund, Marlene Cederlund cooked or brought in dishes to share. Captain Denny Brown's walleye was definitely a favorite.

September four artists: Diane Collins, James Jenkins, Troy Blum and Laureen Deveney will hold a art show at Euclid Public Library
This September four very different artists: Diane Collins, James Jenkins,Troy Blum, and Laureen Deveney will show their art at Euclid Public Library 631 East 222St. Euclid ohio, 44123. Collins is a trained ceramicist/enameler; Jenkins is a painter; Blum is a folk water-colorist; and Deveney drawing/3D. They will share not only their personal work styles, but also bear a resemblance to one another when they attempt to work in three similar platforms: ceramics, drawing, and en-caustics. Ocassionally, this small group of artists get together to pay visits to local gallery art shows. They then analyze and critique what they see. This past winter they paid a visit to Baldwin Wallace Fawick Gallery in Berea, Ohio. where there were five artists: Eileen Dorsey, Hilary Gent, Dott Schneider, Dawn Teckler, and Jack St. John. Motivated by this show, they chose to challenge themselves to work in the stlyes of two of the artists, St. John and Dorsey. For scale and material they decided upon St. John's identically framed large paper paintings and will contrast this to the scale and material of Dorsey who works in small plywood en-caustic's. On International Peace Day, Monday September 21st, there will be a free reception at the library to meet and greet these artists. All are welcome.
Hospice of the Western Reserve Announces Long-Range Growth Plans
Twenty years ago, Hospice of the Western Reserve began admitting patients at its new hospice house – the first in Ohio and one of only a handful in the country – overlooking 1,200 feet of Lake Erie waterfront. At a recent anniversary ceremony, president and chief executive officer Bill Finn announced the agency is engaged in a master planning process with C.C. Hodgson, a firm specializing in healthcare and senior living design services.
“This is a multi-year journey,” Finn said, speaking before an audience of staff members, volunteers and community supporters. “Our objective is to set long-term goals for David Simpson Hospice House and the adjacent 12-acre Christian Life Center property we acquired in 2009. As we examine the options to grow and to expand this campus, our focus is on solutions that will most benefit the Northeast Ohio region - our patients, families and the community.”

Beginning with the Second Vatican Council (1962-65), Catholics were invited to reflect upon their “personal vocation” and consider what God had given to them and what God might be asking from them. While the general use of the word, “vocation” was hardly new to Catholics, the new emphasis that each of us has been given a “personal vocation” by the grace of our baptism provides a broader perspective on “vocation,” beyond the boundaries of Priesthood or Religious Life. Lay people also have a vocation!

Shore Cultural Centre in Euclid was fortunate to have a group of youth and adults from area churches (East Shore Church United Methodist, Euclid and Shoregate United Methodist Church, Willowick) volunteer their time on June 25th to help with various tasks, such as weeding. This group has been planning and attending youth work missions since 2008. This is their 8th straight year of mission work - they were supposed to travel to Beverly, Kentucky (Appalachia) to work on homes in the under served population, but for various reasons plans changed and they decided to stay local and perform mission work in Euclid and Willowick. This is their first "stay-mission" and they were excited to focus their efforts and resources within their own cities. Shore Cultural Centre appreciated them selecting Shore, and are thankful for their hard work. If you would like information about Shore Cultural Centre visit www.shoreculturalcentre.com, or call 216-289-8578.

This is the story of hard work, being in the right place at the right time, talent and love. 42ND STREET is a celebration of Broadway and the people involved in shows. It focuses on aspiring chorus girl Peggy Sawyer, and takes us along her journey. Musical hits include You’re Getting to Be a Habit with Me, Dames, I Know Now, We’re In the Money, Lullaby of Broadway, Shuffle Off to Buffalo and Forty-Second Street. Every audience enjoys watching the underdog succeed
42nd Street tells the story of a humble, naïve young actress named Peggy Sawyer who has come to audition for a new Broadway musical,. Unfortunately, due to her nervousness, Peggy arrives to the audition late and misses her chance to join the chorus. Luckily, Peggy soon catches the eye of the famous director, Julian Marsh, and he gives Peggy her big break. However, the show's aging leading lady, Dorothy Brock, quickly grows to dislike Peggy. On opening night, Ms. Brock falls and breaks her ankle. Panic spreads through the company, as the show is doomed for closure, until it is suggested that Peggy take the roll. In only thirty-six hours, Peggy learns twenty-five pages, six songs and ten dance numbers and becomes a star.
