AS PROMISED LAST WEEK, HERE’S A LIST OF NEWSLETTERS AND WEBSITES PROMOTING LOCAL ACTIVITIES AND COMMUNITY OPPORTUNITIES:

BETHLEHEM NEWS & NOTES is a wonderful community-oriented newsletter published weekly by Bethlehem Community Church. To include items in the bulletin, send them by noon on Thursday to Bethlehem.euclid@sbcglobal.net. For more information about what’s happening at Bethlehem and in the community, sign up to receive Bethlehem News & Notes at Bethlehem-euclid@att.net

Send requests to subscribe to the SHORE BREEZE, containing info on all things Shore and much much more, to Del Tekieli at dtmadre@aol.com or ShoreCC@thecoralcompany.com .  Submissions welcome too.

Those interested in the Waterloo/ E 185 area will love Nan Kennedy’s personal touch and writing style, especially when she describes the latest gallery show—subscribe to NAN’S NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES at  nankennedy@yahoo.com

Sign up for the CITY OF EUCLID’s newsletters and view recreation, administration, senior, and other community events on their new calendar at www.cityofeuclid.com.  The home page is a source of city news and developments.

Visit EUCLID CHAMBER OF COMMERCE’s calendar at ExperienceEuclid.com for two reasons:  to view the monthly calendar of community events, and to easily add your own happening where it reads “click here” on the top of the calendar.  Just fill out the blanks, and within 24 hours it will be approved and posted for all to see.

Everyone voicing an opinion on the future of the newsletter agreed that an event host should be responsible for writing and submitting their own ready to print article. The good news is, nothing needs to change.  Consider the ExperienceEuclid.com calendar a suitable replacement for this newsletter–because not only can you choose to write as much descriptive text as you wish in your event description, I’m the person behind the curtain who will be approving your event for posting!  With your diligence, Euclid residents will remain informed. 

EUCLID PUBLIC LIBRARY’s home page featuring community commentary, plus the chock-full calendar of library events resides at www.euclidlibrary.org

MEMORIAL-NOTTINGHAM LIBRARY’s calendar can be found at http://events.cpl.org/eventcalendar.asp?df=list&ln=19&nd=365

The EUCLID COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER’s website will remain online, with its lists of community links, archived newsletters, recycling info and more.  I’ll continue to post garage sales (and I’m still puzzled over why this didn’t catch on, once the Journal left?), community organization info and commentary as you send it to me at info@euclidwellness.org.  The website’s address is Euclidwellness.org. 

Don’t miss our city meetings, available in any of three ways:  in person, on TV if you have the government channel, or for city council meetings access the link on the www.euclidlibrary.org website a few days after the meeting. 

Finally, if you’re interested in participating in the birth of a new Euclid newspaper written and published by Euclid residents, email me at info@euclidwellness.org and I’ll pass your contact info along to those involved.

 November 2009 Update

 Euclidwellness.org

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

“Too much information!”

 …is a phrase often spoken by an overwhelmed person with eyes squeezed shut and fingers jammed in the ears.  We want to be informed, but too much repeat information creates the opposite effect.  I intended to resume the newsletter in November in a big way after time off to refresh and rethink its structure, and I’m so grateful for the many offers of technical help to create a more streamlined process!  But the biggest obstacles – my drive to hunt down every event in town, need to please all tastes, and inability to settle for less – had no satisfactory resolution.  

Last week I learned the City of Euclid’s new website is already equipped with the marketing features I dreamed of creating, and will enable the city to send out regular notices of community events.  I then considered all the local newsletters and blogs that speak to target audiences rather than trying to be all things to all people.  So should I – as the overused phrase goes – reinvent the wheel by devoting time and money to new software and email programs only to tell you again what you will already know? By subscribing to  newsletters such as Bethlehem News & Notes, the Shore Breeze, Euclid Chamber of Commerce, and Nan’s Neighborhood Notes, and using the calendars on Euclid Chamber of Commerce’s ExperienceEuclid.com site (be sure to post your events there too!) and websites for the City of Euclid and Euclid Library, you can obtain much of the info you want without waiting for me to tediously rework it into yet another list that has grown too lengthy to read. 

Let’s try that and see how it goes?  Here’s an invitation to all those publishing or emailing information on a regular basis:  send me your signup info and I’ll print it next week in place of the newsletter.  Then, people can choose to receive the information that best applies to their interests.  And I can’t say it enough – if you’re representing a group holding an event, PLEASE post it on the ExperienceEuclid.com calendar! 

I believe there’s something more to be done with the website and for the great group of people on my email list. Maybe it’s time to return to the newsletter’s roots and go back outside to play in the community like we did in 2007? (Get your bike ready!) Your continued input and support is much appreciated and will assure that something worthwhile will evolve if we just remain open to it.

 

MEANWHILE…

These November events have been patiently waiting in my inbox in hopes of being published.  I just can’t let them down! 
SUNDAY NOV 1

Did you turn your clock back? There’s plenty of time to make it to breakfast!

They’re back… the very popular PALACINKE BREAKFASTS at St. Mary’s (Collinwood), 15519 Holmes Ave.  For those of you who may not know what palacinke are: they are a Slovenian-style crepe made with only the freshest ingredients, filled with jelly, and either folded or rolled.  At the St. Mary’s breakfasts, the crepes are served with fresh homemade Slovenian sausage, scrambled eggs, fruit garnish, bread, juice and coffee.  They are a great value at $7 for adults and $4 for children.  Mark your calendars for Nov 1 AND Nov 29, all are invited to come.  For more details: 216.761.7740 (parish office)

 

BETTER BRUNCHES AT THE BEACHLAND The State of Ohio has amended its liquor laws to permit full-strength Bloody Marys at 11 am.

 Gallery openings both Friday and Saturday nights on Waterloo

 FRIDAY NOV 6

 

CASEY AND OMAITZ IN THE GALLERY opens tonight. At first glance, these artists couldn’t be more different – Amy Casey’s continued reworking of the elements of houses and wires – old Cleveland houses, old Cleveland buildings, wire fences, swinging wires like a tornado of utility lines is so much more figurative than Jen Omaitz’ assemblages, prints and swirling paintings. But there are points of convergence – the Omaitz swirls often echo the tangled Casey wires, both palettes play off intense, subdued reds and blues against darker colors, and both turn out detailed, complex works that repay long, long looks. Arts Collinwood, 15605 Waterloo 216-692-9500, www.artscollinwood.org. Gallery hours Thur/Fri 6-9 p.m.; Sat/Sun 1-5 p.m., and whenever the adjoining Café is open.

The exhibit opens tonight and runs until December 5 before moving on to other cities. Bigshot Toyworks is a creative studio specializing in the design and production of unique collectibles, toys and art objects, with roots in industrial design, toy design and digital sculpting. 15813 Waterloo, 216.383.3633, www.shoparooni.com. Winter hours: Monday – Closed; Tues, Wed, Thurs – 3 pm – 9 pm; Friday – 3 pm – 10 pm; Saturday – 12 pm – 10 pm; Sunday – 12 pm – 4 pm

 

REALITIES UNSEEN opens at LowLife Gallery, comprised of new works by Andrew Shondrick and Adam Hoskins. Andrew graduated from the University of Akron and was featured in the British magazine London Street Art Design as part of an article on emerging Ohio artists.  He is joined at LowLife by Adam H. Hoskins, another UA grad, who creates vast worlds to illustrate his animal novels. 16101 Waterloo. Thursdays: 6p.m.-10p.m., Fridays: 6p.m.-11p.m., Saturdays: 5p.m.-11p.m.

ART DRIVE AT JOSEPH-BETH  October 10-12  artdrive

I know we keep telling you to stay out of malls and shop at galleries – but if you shop at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Legacy Village October 10-12, 20% of your purchase (10% of bistro purchases) will go to Cleveland Neighborhood Arts, a consortium of the groups sponsored by the Cleveland Foundation’s Neighborhood Connections program. All the money collected will buy musical instruments and art supplies for the children served by the groups; feel free to bring such donations with you, if you have them. Tell the cashier you’re donating to Cleveland Neighborhood Arts. 

 

HAPPY HOUR ART AT ARTS COLLINWOOD  happyhour

The Arts Collinwood Art Center is offering happy-hour art classes on Mondays and Wednesdays; Michele Biondo will show you how to make jewelry from broken crockery (the small masterpieces created by china painters of the past come into focus when they’re not surrounded by a plate); she’ll also show you how to make simple stained glass designs. And there’ll be a garden art series, too, making wreaths, stepping stones, mobiles and such. Details below. 

 

PARTY WITH THE ART MERCHANTS October 10  Fall

The Waterloo shops and galleries have got together with the Slovenian Home for a festive evening of food and shopping: extremely good $5 sandwiches in the Slovenian Home’s bar (along with cheap beer) plus a bocce court plus in-store events all along the street. All inspired by a recent arrival in the neighborhood who loved the summer Arts Fest and wanted to keep the vibe going.

 

HAVE YOU READ THE OBSERVER YET?

WATERLOO’S PUBLIC ART  October 12

And if you’re really interested in public art here in Collinwood, look for the upcoming series “Art Endeavors” at Arts Collinwood Gallery on Oct 17 and 24 — two sessions (with wine and cheese) focused on the potential for public art and what it can accomplish here in our community.

THIS WEEK ON WATERLOO

 

ANOTHER DUMM ART SHOW AT ARTS COLLINWOOD October 9-31

  There’s a place in Cleveland where cats of bizarre geometries hang with politicians, zombies, musicians and other singular characters (including the writer/creator of American Splendor, Harvey Pekar).

  Gary and Laura Dumm have depicted all these beings and more in pen & ink and paint in their two-person art show at Arts Collinwood Gallery. The show’s opening reception, with treats and spirits, is October 9 from 6 pm till 9 pm. This exhibit offers the viewer a broad spectrum of techniques and sensibilities: from Laura’s lighter, funkified color approach in painting the feline to Gary’s ink drawings of blues people, cartoons and dark re-animated horrors.  It can also be viewed during open hours for the adjoining Waterloo Cafe, then closes rather appropriately on Halloween.   Bring your imagination, a love of color (and black & white) and maybe a few “treats”, some of these beasties look hungry!

Contact the Dumms at 216-961-0230 for more information or email artcat12@sbcglobal.net.

Arts Collinwood gallery is at 15605 Waterloo Road; hours are Thur/Fri 6-9; Sat/Sun 1-4. Call 216-692-9500.

FALL HAPPENING ON WATERLOO  October 10

Spend the evening of October 10 partying with the art merchants.  Start with a visit to retro-land at the Slovenian Home, where the beer is cheap, a bocce court lurks in the basement and the parking is both free and secure. (Didn’t know Collinwood had a bocce court, did you? Come witness!) After you’ve stoked up there, you can stroll down the street checking out Arts Collinwood and the Waterloo Café, the Beachland Ballroom, MusicSaves, Shoparooni, LowLife Gallery, StarPop, Blue Arrow Records (and don’t forget the books) and Waterloo 7 – most of which will be having special in-store events. Such as:

THE DUMMS AT ARTS COLLINWOOD

If you missed the Friday opening – this is your night. The Waterloo Café will be open, too.

Arts Collinwood gallery is at 15605 Waterloo Road; hours are Thur/Fri 6-9; Sat/Sun 1-4. Call 216-692-9500. Waterloo Café is next door.

TENTH ANNUAL ROOTS OF AMERICAN MUSIC BENEFIT AT BEACHLAND

Since 1999, Roots of American Music (ROAM) has been connecting individuals young and old to the history and spirit of our country through traditional American music. ROAM’s 10th Anniversary Benefit for Education, featuring singer-songwriter Alex Bevan and none other than Michael Stanley, will offer an intimate all-acoustic concert, weaving the songs and stories that defined being young, alive and seeking one’s fate in Northern Ohio for the last quarter century. Concert-only tickets are $50 for the 7 pm show. VIP tickets, which include early dinner and private reception, are $125 (with a $30 tax deduction) and almost sold out – but call 216 – 321 – 9353 to see if you can still get one.

PNK-EYE SIXTH ISSUE PARTY AT THE BEACHLAND

Pink Eye magazine is a glossy zine detailing the arts, culture and music scene in Northeast Ohio, with a firm grasp of the punk/avant ethos and how that connects with what it sees as Cleveland’s dystopian nature. Celebrating their sixth issue, the publishers decided to hold a little shindig in the Tavern at 10:30 pm. On this bill will be The Buried Wires, Electronic funk duo Arte Povera, noisy pop combo Chief Bromide and pinball prog-metal quartet Self Destruct Button. Come early, take in the openings and birthday parties at the art stops, then go to the Tavern.

Beachland Ballroom, 15711 Waterloo, 216.383.1124, www.beachlandballroom.com

 

SHOPAROONI’S SECOND BIRTHDAY

Shoparooni turns two and wants some cupcakes NOOOOOOOOOW!!! Oh, and some other spooky kooky Halloween stuff on Waterloo. And if you missed the Johnny Yanok opening last week, not to fret – he’s still there. His work – sort of 1950s ad art meets anime – would make great nursery decorations for a baby with unusual tastes. His illustrations, paintings and sculptures are known across the country, and his shows are characterized by people smiling. Broadly.

The exhibition is on view until Friday, October 30, during store hours: Monday – Closed; Tues, Wed, Thurs – 2 pm – 10 pm; Friday – 2 pm – 11 pm; Saturday – 12 pm – 11 pm; Sunday – 12 pm – 6 pm.

THIS WEEK AT THE FARMERS’ MARKET

Autumn is closing the doors on the vegetable patch – but Secors still had corn and tomatoes last Saturday, and  Francis had perfectly beautiful cabbages. PanDeMonium (the Shaker Heights greens growers) were selling radicchio to cook “like collards, only faster.” I stocked up on apples at the Rigginses, who also provided dear little Chinese chestnuts (stab each one with a knife and bake it in oven or microwave till soft; salt and savor); Mrs Riggins had to fight a squirrel for them, but she’s a doughty lady. Acorn squash at three for $2 (or $1 apiece) were too good to resist – and they make a very nice gift. Really.

To get last-minute updates on what you’ll find at the market, join the market’s email group.  Subscribe by sending an email to:  coitmarket-subscribe@yahoogroups.com. And go to the website (coitmarket. org) to buy tickets for their first ever Taste of Autumn event. 

Coit Road Farmer’s Market is located at the corner of Coit & Woodworth Road in East Cleveland. Saturdays & Wednesdays 8am-1pm – all year round. Summer Mondays 4-8 pm.

~ EUCLID COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER ~

 October 2009 Issue

Euclidwellness.org

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

EUCLID COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER IS TAKING A BREAK.

Surprised?  Me too!  Until I wrote this I didn’t believe it either, but it’s time.

Although recent newsletters are stuffed with facts, this began as a little blog about local events. When the Journal left I felt obligated to add some news to the mix.  I find myself in the uncomfortable place where some now expect me to behave like a newspaper and adopt the standards of a reporter, and others want me to represent their causes.  In addition, many no longer send in events because they count on me to hunt them down– a terribly time consuming job– and if I fail to do so, I often hear about it later. The pressure of meeting expectations is taking its toll.  It’s really stressful to evolve in public! 

   

Euclid’s on the verge of exciting NEWS opportunities.  You may feel lost without the Journal, but all eyes are on Euclid’s needs and there are many folks both in and out of the city anxious to fill that news void.  It’s time for me to decide if, and where, I fit in!  Should I continue this extremely time consuming unpaid job until it’s no longer needed?  Join forces with an interactive online community paper?  Or step out of the way?  To help make that decision, I need to try on how it feels to have my mornings, lunch hours, evenings and vacations free again. 

 

This issue contains the October events I have to date, so hang onto it for reference because I will probably not send any more newsletters this month.  Be sure to visit the websites boxed at the end of the October listings to access the area calendars containing lots of events not printed below.

 

I’ll continue to update the website’s pages with any info you send for garage sale ads and news articles.  I’ll also post Nan Kennedy’s Neighborhood Notes from Waterloo there each week.  

 

 If I find myself missing the newsletter as much as some think I will, I’ll return by the end of October.

If not, ………?

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you have comments about the future of the Euclid Community Newsletter,

please join me at the following:

 October 1: EUCLID COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER MEETUP– open to anyone who cares about the future of news in Euclid, and the continuation of this newsletter in particular. In the absence of a local paper it’s time to discuss what we need, how it should be accomplished, and whether or how to keep the newsletter going.  If you’re interested in sharing your ideas and opinions at this meeting, email info@euclidwellness.org to reserve a spot so I know how many to expect.  7 PM at St. Roberts, 23802 Lakeshore Blvd.

Our Waterloo correspondent suggests we stroll across the street to WATERLOO 7 GALLERY to “see the wind chimes made from drum cymbals hanging in the Sculpture Garden beside the gallery – very charming. M. Forbes’ papierdogs (colorful companions in papier mache) are a giggle. Marcus Braithwaite’s pen and ink drawings are delicate delights. Barbara Daberkow’s (extremely reasonable) fabric bags are precisely crafted and practical, as well. But what really won my heart were Laurel Herbold’s drizzled paintings – with paint left over from her bread-and-butter murals, Laurel creates intricate tangles (yarn? Brain prions? The Internet?) overlaid with a close approximation of Arabic calligraphy. The colors are soothing, the execution immaculate. Her little people, almost stick figures, decorate neckties, glasses, mugs – whatever – and are delightful – but the calligraphy scores.”  Be sure to visit Jerry’s studio. 16006 Waterloo; closed on Mon; open 2-8-Tue, 2-8-Wed, 2-8-Thu, 2-10-Fri/Sat, 1-6-Sun. 239-293-95458.

TENTH ANNUAL ROOTS OF AMERICAN MUSIC BENEFIT in Beachland Ballroom, 15711 Waterloo, 7 PM (6 PM door). Alex Bevan & Michael Stanley play an intimate all-acoustic concert, weaving songs and stories that defined being young, alive and seeking one’s fate in N. Ohio. For Stanley, whose MSB shattered attendance records at Blossom Music Center and the Front Row, his rock torn from the roots of the heartland found its way from Billboard’s Top 20 to “American Bandstand,” while Bevan, whose “Skinny Li’l Boy” was a revelry anthem, plied a wide-eyed acoustic/folk approach that celebrated the natural beauty of the Grand River, Kelly’s Island and the innocence of first love.  This is the first time these two iconic singer/songwriters share a stage. Also includes a silent auction and raffle of music-related items. $50/ticket with a $30 tax deduction.  VIP tickets, including a catered dinner at the Beachland Tavern, drink tickets, priority reserved seating and valet parking, are $125 ($75 tax deductible), and they always sell out quickly. Call ROAM for the VIP ticket, 216-321-9353.

~ EUCLID COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER ~

September 24, 2009 

Euclidwellness.org

 

Let’s talk about people, not buildings.

They’re the reason this newsletter weighed in at a mind-numbing 14 pages last week. The people INSIDE the buildings have worked for their causes longer than some readers have been alive!  Whether they’re in the churches that provide for our community’s needs, the non profits pouring hours of volunteer time into fundraisers and housekeeping tasks to keep the organization running a few more months, the shops & galleries on Waterloo aspiring to become the “Eastside Tremont”, or the community centers committed to entertaining, educating, caring for and supporting us, these tired cheerleaders deserve the boost one gets from being appreciated. 

What better way to say thanks than for us to pick at least one event or volunteer opportunity from the newsletter each week that we may never have considered before, and give it a try!

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Still time—the GALLERY SHOWS at Shoparooni and LowLife Gallery on Waterloo close after this weekend; the Tiedman & Utter show at Arts Collinwood ends Oct 3.

 

Euclid has a free gallery show of its own, the EDITORIAL ART EXHIBIT from the collection of the late Bill Jerse in LAKESHORE COFFEE HOUSE.  See his cartoons featured in the Sun Journal which frequently targeted political figures and developers.  His hard hitting style is missed by many who admired his criticism and courage to put it in print.  Prints on display will change weekly, so stop in often to catch them all.

SHORE CULTURAL CENTRE FARMERS MARKET continues to deliver fine fall harvest and other delicacies such as oils, vinegars, honey, baked goods and much more.

 

Opening night for JOHNNY YANOK at Shoparooni from 7-11 PM. His paintings, illustrations and sculptures – sort of 1950s ad art meets anime – are known across the country, and his shows are characterized by people smiling. Broadly. On view until Oct 30, during store hours: Mon – Closed; Tues, Wed, Thurs – 2 – 10 PM; Friday – 2 – 11 PM; Sat – noon – 11 PM; Sun – noon – 6 PM. 15813 Waterloo, 216-383-3633

Our Waterloo correspondent suggests we stroll across the street to WATERLOO 7 GALLERY to “see the wind chimes made from drum cymbals hanging in the Sculpture Garden beside the gallery – very charming. M. Forbes’ papierdogs (colorful companions in papier mache) are a giggle. Marcus Braithwaite’s pen and ink drawings are delicate delights. Barbara Daberkow’s (extremely reasonable) fabric bags are precisely crafted and practical, as well. But what really won my heart were Laurel Herbold’s drizzled paintings – with paint left over from her bread-and-butter murals, Laurel creates intricate tangles (yarn? Brain prions? The Internet?) overlaid with a close approximation of Arabic calligraphy. The colors are soothing, the execution immaculate. Her little people, almost stick figures, decorate neckties, glasses, mugs – whatever – and are delightful – but the calligraphy scores.”  Be sure to visit Jerry’s studio. 16006 Waterloo; closed on Mon; open 2-8-Tue, 2-8-Wed, 2-8-Thu, 2-10-Fri/Sat, 1-6-Sun. 239-293-95458.

Euclidwellness.org

 

WE’RE WELL ON OUR WAY TO CREATING A GRASSROOTS NETWORK OF INFORMATION THAT RELIES ON COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT!  

Let’s cover all our bases:

v     The City of Euclid’s updated website— www.cityofeuclid.com –is full of links & info that formerly were hard to find, and the new calendar puts City & Recreation Department info right where you want it. Check it out!

 v     The new, improved Euclid Chamber of Commerce calendar at ExperienceEuclid.com invites everyone to post their community events and meetings directly to the calendar with the click of a mouse!  Be sure yours is there for others to see.

 v     Euclid Library’s site www.euclidlibrary.org is not just about books, it’s another great source of current community info as well as rarely seen/heard historical videos and audio clips from Euclid years past. 

 v     The Euclid Community Newsletter will continue to publish Euclid/ N Collinwood events (send yours to info@euclidwellness.org ), and is willing to grow even more to accommodate your need for news & community info by adding relevant pages as needed to the website, EuclidWellness.org, for your input.  To submit articles, read the guidelines on each page.

And we all need YOU—be sure you’re helping to make our community stronger and your events successful by getting your info out where folks can see it. 

And a special reminder to local organizations & businesses: 

KEEP THOSE WEBSITES UPDATED! 

Yes, it’s a lot of work to keep it current and make it look good…but remember, it’s becoming the number one way people look for your info, so their further interaction with you will only be as good as your website is.  If they don’t see what they want the first time, they probably won’t visit again. Don’t put it off!
