Shore Cultural Centre Awards Window Renovation Contract

Shore Cultural Centre is delighted to announce that our window rejuvenation project is taking a huge step forward. Work will begin in late 2020 or early 2021 to replace windows on the north side of our building. The contract for the work has been awarded to Jamieson Ricca Fenestration located in Cleveland, Ohio. Jamieson Ricca provides accurate historic window replication systems for renovation projects. They have provided solutions for the Cleveland Historic Coast Guard Station, Tomlinson Hall at Case Western Reserve University, St. Luke's Hospital Rehabilitation, and other major projects around Northeast Ohio.

The window project was made possible through the combined efforts of many people and organizations. Thanks go to State Senator Kenny Yuko, who represents Ohio's 25th Senate District, and the Ohio Development Services Agency who earmarked $325,000 in Ohio's budget last year for this project. State Senator Yuko is a Euclid native who devotes his career to strengthening Northeast Ohio communities.

Since coming to Shore in 2009 when The Coral Company was hired to manage the building, Executive Director, Laura Kidder, has worked tirelessly to raise funds for this and other projects. Working with Shore's Board of Directors, Laura raised thousands of dollars from private donations for building improvements. “I've been on a mission!” Laura states. “Thanks to Senator Yuko and all our angel donors for their continued support. This is an important goal in our mission to preserve and maintain this historic building.”

Shore Cultural Centre is an valued asset to Euclid and surrounding communities. Located at 291 East 222nd Street, Shore Cultural Centre is on the National Register of Historic Places. The building houses art studios, daycare, medical training, ministries, the Euclid Hunger Center, and WIC Program. Family-friendly programming and community celebrations such as the Euclid Holiday Celebration take place at Shore.

Donations are still being accepted to complete the work of this important project. Shore Cultural Centre is a 50l c(3) non-profit organization. If you would like to contribute to the Every Pane Counts Window Fund, donations can be made to Shore Cultural Centre Civic Corporation and sent to Laura Kidder, Executive Director, Shore Cultural Centre, 291 E. 222nd Street, Euclid, Oh 44123.

“We may live without poetry, music, and art;

We may live without conscience, and live without heart;

We may live without friends, we may live without books;

But civilized man cannot live without cooks.”
