Memorial Day 2019

Honoring our Euclid Veterans

The Euclid Memorial Day parade is one of the longest running and best parades in the area! The 89th Euclid Memorial Day Parade and services started with graveside services at Euclid Cemetery and St. Paul’s Cemetery followed by a ceremony and breakfast at Recher Hall (the first home of the Euclid Veterans Association).  The parade kicked off at 10:00am and featured our honored local veterans organizations.  Euclid Police, Fire, City Officials as well as a variety of Euclid community members, organizations, churches, and community groups also marched to honor those who served our country.  Grateful residents and family members lined the beautiful, newly paved E. 222nd Street which is now proudly lined with Hometown Hero Banners honoring local service men and women.

Message from the Mayor

I am truly proud to serve the City of Euclid as its Mayor.  One of the greatest honors as Mayor is to participate in the Memorial Day parade and services.  This year was the 89th annual parade and Memorial Day services – what a great tradition to honor those who served and sacrificed for our freedom.  We are so fortunate to have an active Joint Veteran’s Council and strong local Veteran’s organizations who continue to support and serve our community in so many ways.  I am also grateful to all the community organizations and residents who participated in the parade or came to watch and pay respect to our veterans.   Special thanks goes out to the Service Department for making sure E. 222nd Street was completed, the grounds were prepared, and all the necessary preparations were done.  Thank you also to Linda Beck, Andy Kiral, Rick Smith, Cheryl Ludwa, John Prizzi, Ed Chenock, together with Keep Euclid Beautiful and the Euclid Joint Veterans Council, for coordinating the Hometown Heroes Banners that lined the parade route.  What a tremendous way to show our pride for those who served!

Celebrate Your Life

Deb is a Life Coach. Soon you can meet her at the Euclid Chamber Greenhouse. In the meantime, contact her at: DobbsCommunication.com

As a kid, did you ever peer inside a kaleidoscope? If so, can you recall your fascination with the designs and colors? Or, did you spend hours sifting through odd objects to create a fort or a lemonade stand? Perhaps you spent your time creating costumes and acting out imaginary stories. Or did you spend hours riding your bike, practicing sports or hanging out with friends? If not, you may be able to recall a brief time when you felt safe, relaxed or content.

Kiddie City Hosts Family Tea Party

Kiddie City Childcare Community recently hosted a "Springtime Tea Party" for parents, grandparents, and other "special" family members.  The children created their own special placemats for their guests and made colored carnation centerpieces, using food coloring in water.  For several days prior to the event, the Pre-Schoolers were able to observe their carnations change from white flowers to colored flowers through the scientific process of transpiration.   Each child enjoyed cupcakes and tea with their hosted guests.  The morning culminated with the Pre-School students singing "I'm a Little Teapot" and planting seeds with their families. Check out the Kiddie City photo gallery of Tea Party pictures!

Care For Caregivers

Today, so many people are working hard to keep their aging and/or ill loved ones at home.  It is at once a selfless act of love and an exhausting undertaking.  Ss. Robert and William Parish has committed to walking with these men and women by sponsoring a monthly Caregivers Support Group.  On the third Saturday morning of the month, they meet to pray, share stories, and get good advice on how to better negotiate the difficult terrain of caregiving.  (Please note that meetings are also open to those who have a loved one in healthcare facilities.  Sometimes circumstances make it impossible to care for someone at home and many people make daily visits to nursing homes, performing tasks that let the patient know they are remembered and valued by their family.)  Guest presenters have included people from the Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging, an elder law expert, and even a music therapist.  There is a lot of great advice out there but sometimes all that is needed is a break from the daily routine in a relaxed environment with others who understand what you are going through.  Meetings are from 10:30 AM until Noon and are open to parishioners and non-parishioners alike.  The cost is free but we do ask that you call ahead to allow us to prepare materials when needed.  For more information call Renée Barber at 216-731-1515 Ext. 262.

Lakefront Erosion - Informational Public Meeting

The Lakefront Erosion meeting is intended for lakefront property owners in Euclid, however it is open for residents from neighboring lakefront communities and all Euclid residents.

If you live on the shores of Lake Erie, it is no secret that persistent wet conditions have resulted in a rapid rise in lake levels this spring. As of mid-May, the daily levels of nearly all of the Great Lakes were above their record high monthly mean levels. The increased intensity and frequency of rainfall combined with higher water levels can wreak havoc on the shoreline, accelerating erosion.

The Perfect Date Movie Review (Netflix streaming original movie)

Noah Centineo stars in his third romantic comedy created by Netflix but this time he is the lead as opposed to the foil for the female lead as in his past two films. He continues to show that he can hold his own opposite his strongest cast yet. The movie boasts both Laura Marano (Austin & Ally) and Camila Mendes (Riverdale) as the other leads but Mendes is clearly "click bait" as she barely appears in the movie more than what is shown in the trailer. This movie is clearly a vehicle for Centineo opposite a surprisingly talented Marano but the plot remains too obvious with little to enjoy other than the rising star of Centineo. Grade - C

The Hustle Movie Review

This movie lives and dies on the chemistry between its lead actors - Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. I am a fan of both of them but there is no particular chemistry between the two that suggests this movie should have gotten past the screen test stage. Everyone is just going through the motions with few surprises or chuckles to be had. I did like the opening credits sequence though. That was well done. Grade: C minus.
