Lakeland Civic Association Cancels Spring Events

LCA regrettably will cancel or postpone its regular Spring events due to the continuing pandemic. The otherwise active neighborhood organization already had postponed its quarterly meeting which had been rescheduled for Thursday June 11. That meeting will not be held.

Quarterly gatherings of the group typically are attended by thirty or more of its most active members and interested neighbors. LCA President Kevin Jones has determined that the risk of attendance remains too high and that the COVID-19 pandemic prevents LCA from following its normal schedules.

Euclid, OH (March 2020)  - HELP Foundation, Inc. proudly announces Arcadia GlassHouse, as a presenting sponsor of their 2nd Annual Helping Lives Bloom Spring Gala to be held at the elegant Stillwater Place at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo on Saturday, May 2, 2020.

Jeff Kenyon, President of Arcadia GlassHouse explains, "HELP does a great job providing life-changing services for valued members of our community. This new greenhouse will enable them to expand by offering organic gardening skills to grow their own food source year-round with hydroponics and other modern growing technologies. Arcadia GlassHouse is proud to be part of this HELPful mission.

Arcadia GlassHouse was founded by a horticulturist from The Ohio State University who started designing and building commercial propagation greenhouses in 1980. The demand for very precise temperature and humidity controlled environments for propagation of woody ornamentals led to innovative engineering designs for high quality, reliable greenhouses that were air tight and energy efficient. These design innovations are what makes Arcadia GlassHouse unique in providing exceptional growing environments with strong extruded aluminum frames. Arcadia now has its sales and service headquarters with a 10,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art manufacturing operation in Madison, Ohio.

FreshWater editor to teach 12-week 'Artist's Way' course at The Green House in February

Often, when I talk to people I meet in Cleveland about The Artist's Way, they haven't heard of it, but they're intrigued and want to learn more. (Or they've had it on their bookshelf for years and are ready to dust it off.)

That's why I'm so excited to once again offer "CLE-ative Groove," a dedicated 12-week course based on Julia Cameron's best-selling bookThe Artist's Way has been an incredibly transformative tool in my own life—I studied it for many years when I lived in Los Angeles, where the book and corresponding classes helped me navigate a job transition from the entertainment industry back to my journalism roots, a difficult period of fertility treatments, and various other turning points in my life.

As we get ready to ramp up for the fourth installment here in Cleveland, I wanted to share the class with FreshWater Cleveland readers, the dreamers, doers, and do-gooders of our city. Despite the title, the Artist's Way isn't just for artists—it's for anyone looking to reclaim their creative spark or kickstart their art, whether it be writing, painting, starting a business, or [insert your passion here].

The book speaks to creatives, entrepreneurs, and/or anyone looking to make a meaningful shift personally or professionally; the class melds self-care and self-discovery via interactive exercises, journaling prompts, and creative connection within the group.

The class is being held at The Green House coworking space in Euclid this winter, and dates run from Feb. 12 to May 6, with an off week March 11. (The class meets every Wednesday from 6:30 to 9 p.m.) FreshWater Cleveland readers can get a discount of 10% off by entering the code FRESHWATER when registering here.

Hope to see you there! Feel free to email me at editor@freshwatercleveland.com with any questions or curiosities.
