Seeing Friends: Judge Fuerst, Dale Miller, the Gelfands, and Cleveland Stonewall Democrats

Thursday evening, September 18th, we attended three fundraisers and the monthly Stonewall Democratic Club meeting in the space of two and a half hours. It was quite a jaunt but we had a good time playing our own version of “beat the clock” and “drive the mile.” The first fundraiser was for Judge Nancy A. […]


Encouraging Green Card Holders to Become Citizens

Yesterday, September 17th, was Citizenship Day in the United States. Also known as Constitution Day, it celebrates the day our founding fathers signed the Constitution in 1787 in Philadelphia.

Power of More and Coffee Contacts

On Wednesday evening, September 17th, we attended a Power of More Mega Mixer at Montrose Volvo of Cleveland. “The Power of More” is sort of an umbrella that covers the chambers of Fairview Park, North Coast (of which we are members), North Olmsted, North Ridgeville, Olmsted and West Shore.

Hispanic Heritage Exhibit

After we attended the 9/11 ceremony at the Horizon Science Academy on Thursday, September 11th, we planned to take a break until evening and do some errands including a trip to the tailors. Since it happened to be convenient for us to stop in Lakewood, we took our clothes to “New Era Dry Cleaners and […]


Fairview Chamber of Commerce, Lincoln West High School, and CAMEO

Our first event for Wednesday, September 10th, was a luncheon at the Fairview Chamber of Commerce where we reconnected with several people that we had seen several times before like Mayor Eileen Patton who loves the Christmas cards that she receives each year from Margaret W. Wong but regrets never having met her. We assured […]


Gloria Steinem and PFLAG

This Town Hall was a fundraiser for CWRU’s Flora Stone Mather Center for Women whose vision includes integrating “research […]
