We had some chores to do at home on Sunday morning, September 5th, but, nevertheless, we took an hour off to attend the traditional opening ceremony of the annual Hungarian Festival, now in its 65th year, presented by the American Hungarian Friends of Scouting, celebrating 70 years of scouting in the Cleveland area, at German Central Farm on York Road in Parma.
Out & About
On Thursday evening, September 2nd, we went to the Lakewood Democratic Club’s Summer Supper that was held at Western Reserve Distillers on Madison Avenue. Considering the recent Covid-19 surge, no one was admitted to the affair without first showing their vaccination card which we believe was a very wise protocol.
On Friday, August 27th, we attended an in-person forum at the City Club titled “Believing in Home” wherein Ms. Michelle Jarboe of “Crain’s Cleveland” interviewed Mr. Kevin J. Nowak, Executive Director of CHN Housing Partners, and Mr. D.J. Valentine, Vice President, State CRA Mortgage Sales Manager, at Huntington National Bank, regarding the advantages of homeownership and the avenues to achieving it.
On Friday, August 27th through Sunday, August 29th, the 31st Annual Egyptian Festival took place at St. Mark Coptic Orthodox Church on Pleasant Valley Road in Seven Hills.
It is billed as “an Egyptian cultural experience with great food, musical entertainment, and souvenirs.”
On Tuesday evening, August 24th, we went to the headquarters of Cleveland Walls! at 7119 Euclid Avenue to attend an artist talk titled “Taking Action: Social Change through Artistic Practice” wherein the participants discussed the potential for murals, like those being created in the Cleveland Walls! process, to positively impact a community.
On Tuesday evening, August 23rd, we stopped by the Cleveland Walls! headquarters at 7113 Euclid Avenue to watch Cleveland community members try their own hand at creating art on the side of the building.
On Sunday, August 22, we stopped off at two festivals which Margaret W. Wong & Associates LLC supported by purchasing ads.
First, we went to the 16th annual St. Mary’s Romanian Festival on Warren Road in Cleveland.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, it was billed as the “drive-thru edition” and cars were lined up to pick up take-out orders.
On Saturday, August 21st, we stopped off at La Placita that was taking place that weekend at the corner of West 25th Street and Clark Avenue, an area known as “La Villa Hispana” which is the cultural and economic hob of the Hispanic community in both Cleveland and the Northeast Ohio region.
On Monday, August 23rd, we toured the various Cleveland Walls!/Midtown Murals sites and were most impressed by what we saw.
Here are some photos that we took
