As part of our Made in Collinwood outreach to artisan businesses, Northeast Shores is kicking off 2017 with a free entrepreneurial workshop series!
The core 4-week Neighborhood GROWS series combines the impact of an intensive business development and management series with the personalized attention and detail of one-on-one business counseling sessions to meet the needs of neighborhood-based retail businesses.
The retail industry is nothing short of a rollercoaster ride, but with the right planning you can be prepared to make educated decisions to remain competitive and profitable. While the core of a retail based business does not change much from location to location, the neighborhood you open your business in does aﬀect what you sell and how you sell it.
This training series presented by Northeast Shores Development Corporation and the Hispanic Business Center gives you the tools and expert knowledge needed to open or expand your business in the greater Collinwood community.

May 6, 10am to 12pm - It’s that time again when the snow has (hopefully) melted and all that remains is the salt from the roads and trash that was left behind. All that trash goes someplace, and it’s unfortunately the shores of Euclid Beach. The great news is if everyone pitches in, we can help make Collinwood beautiful! Grab a neighbor, grab the kids and get to picking up trash. We’ll have trash bags and gloves for you, plus a few incentives. This is a great way to give back to the community that has given us so much. For more information call Julia at 216-481-7660.
It’s April, and that means it’s time to start planting! Whether you lack land or just want to garden around friends, community gardens can be found throughout North Shore Collinwood. So get out there with your green thumb!

Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of all ages, past and present, are invited to Saint Casimir Parish on Sunday, February 26, 2017 at 12 noon for a special All Scout Mass. Uniformed scouts from local parishes will serve as readers and ministers, and attendees are invited to wear their Scout uniforms or the insignia from their time in Scouting.
The mass will celebrate the shared heritage of Scouting and mark the birthday of the founder of The Boy Scouts Association and Girl Guides, Lord Robert Baden-Powell. His success inspired his friend Juliet Gordon Low to return to her native Savannah, Georgia in 1912 and start the very first troop of Girl Scouts of the USA.
Since 1926, Scouts celebrate Baden-Powell’s birthdate, February 22—which he shared with his wife, Olave—as World Thinking Day. Scout families in more than 145 countries around the globe celebrate over 110 years of Scouting supporting the physical, mental and spiritual development of young people, so that they may play constructive roles in society. Olave wrote that, though we cannot visit with our brother and sister scouts around the globe, “you can reach out to them there in your mind. And in this unseen, spiritual way you can give them your uplifting sympathy and friendship.”
The celebration will be a full Catholic Mass, but all are welcome at St. Casimir.
The Salvation Army will host a Martin Luther King Day celebration on Monday, January 16th from 10:00 until 2:00. Children and teens of all ages are invited to take part in this event.

Her insights will be as relevant today as it was in the 1950’s and 60’s.
Participants will then be invited to join age appropriate workshops based upon the day’s theme: Dream, Move, Serve. After the workshops, lunch will be served and the children will have the opportunity to make cards which will be distributed to The Hospice of the Western Reserve located on E. 185th Street.
At the end of the day participants will be invited to share the projects that they created during the workshops.
Event planners include: Caroline Peak, Charlotte Iafeliece, Margaret Craig, Sr. Madeline Muller, Jamar Doyle and Valerie Beutel. AmeriCorps members from NEOMED and University Hospital will volunteer.
