Message from the Mayor
Happy Holidays to you and your families! As we prepare for holiday gatherings and celebrations, I know I will be thinking of all those who helped to move our community forward this year. I am proud of the progress we have made this year and the resiliency that our community has shown when faced with challenges. The work to build a strong community continues to bring me joy in so many ways!
I hope you will take some time to connect with your neighbors and enjoy our many community assets during the holidays. Take a walk down to Sims Park to see the progress being made on the new shoreline improvements as part of our Waterfront Improvements Project. Stop at Shore Cultural Centre to see the holiday light display and hear the Euclid Symphony Orchestra on 12/2 or Singing Angels on 12/16. Take a walk through the Euclid Creek Metro Park and enjoy the natural beauty. Visit the Euclid Historical Society and Museum for their holiday party on 12/9 and learn more about Euclid’s history. Enjoy the many holiday decorations throughout our neighborhoods and visit a neighbor who may not get out. Visit one of our faith communities for a holiday service or event.
We all can help to support thriving neighborhood business districts. As you prepare for the holiday, please remember your local stores, restaurants and entertainment establishments. By keeping your dollars local, you are helping to improve our local economy while supporting small, resident owned and operated businesses. Please take special effort to support our E. 222nd Street businesses who are being impacted by the road construction. Please eat local and shop local whenever you can!
During this season of giving, if you are able to make a charitable contribution please give locally. Our local organizations and community groups truly make a difference everyday right here in our community and they depend on the generosity of time and resources from all of us. Thank you to all who give so much!
On behalf of the City of Euclid, I wish you and your family many blessings and much joy this holiday season! Thank you for your continued support and commitment to our community. Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Kwanzaa! Best wishes for a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!
