Eddie Mitchell

At our Euclid Art Association meeting on Monday, January 9, 2017, we featured members, Gerry Shamray, Dan Driscoll, and Eddie Mitchell, plus EAA workshop previews by Launie McDevitt and Lee Peters.  On this very cold January evening, 34 members and one guest, came out to hear Gerry, Dan and Eddie talk to us about their artwork.  That’s a very nice show of support from our membership when you consider this was the very same evening as the big college football game!  But then again, the January meeting is always one of our favorites and as we heard someone say....“the best meeting ever.”  “Northeast Ohio really is teeming with talent!”....another nice comment.

Learn to Skate at C.E. Orr Ice Arena 

We all know it. February is cold and dreary, and it can be hard to convince yourself to leave the house.

Snuggling up at home is tempting, but staying active is important for both the body and brain!  Luckily here in Euclid, there are many opportunities to keep your mind off gray skies and frigid temperatures.

Bob’s Corner

He had just lost the love of his life, and he came to the Center because he didn’t want to be alone. His feelings and emotions were raw. They went from relief that the suffering was over, to anger and a horrible feeling of emptiness. Twenty-six years together is a long time.

During that time, they had shared everything in life. Good times, and bad. Happy and sad. It has been said that everyone needs a witness to their life and his had died, just this morning.

We talked about the belief that birth and death are opposites, but there is no opposite to life. We talked about life going on, but in a different form that we cannot see. We spoke about the gift that life together had been, and how it is better that the suffering is now over.

Families Make the Difference at OLL School

Trunk or Treat is one of the popular events the PTO organizes at OLL School

Our Lady of the Lake School is successful not only because it has great students and teachers – but because it has great families, too. Moms and dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles – this is the extended community that comes together to offer students extra support and to provide resources and programs. Each school year the PTO at Our Lady of the Lake plans an array of fundraisers and events, from the Walkathon to family movie night, uniform exchanges to dances, dad walks and muffins with mom and COSI day and so much more. The parents at Our Lady of the Lake go above and beyond because they want every student to feel their education is important and their community supports them. And they want every family to feel welcome, to make the school community a fun and engaging place. Judging by the success of their events, with hundreds of students turning up for Halloween fun, dozens of moms getting together for art night, and more than 30 parents turning up for even the most routine of meetings, this parent teacher group has got a good thing going. And the whole school community appreciates all the great work that they do.
