Ralph D'Alessio, our Cleveland Cultural Garden representative, will give an update on the Greek Garden and HPS's proposed project to complete the Garden's frieze. 
When the Greek Garden was dedicated in 1940 a proposed relief sculpture was to be installed on the Parthenon wall facade. The frieze was never realized, and HPS will be undertaking this project.  
A brief update to the membership will kick off the evening, prior to Ralph's talk.
We will also be electing a new at large member to join the board.  
The Cleveland State University Department of Theate and Dance will present Tree of Oedipus. This new play developed by The Idea Theater in Athens, is having its American and English language premier at the CSU Department of Theater and Dance. The play, compiled from several ancient Greek tragedies, follows the lineage of Oedipus, from Cadmus, the first man and founder of Thebes, through the story of Oepidus' fall and redemption, to the deadly civil war between his sons, and the final battle between Creon and Antigone.
What’s going on at the Garden
The Greek Garden has been put to bed for the winter. Even in winter it is a popular garden to visit and take photographs. Stop by and visit the Cultrual Gardens, they are beautiful and unique to Cleveland!
The Cleveland Cultural Garden Federation's 73rd Annual One World Day was a big success. We will be looking forward to next year's event which will move back to it's August date in 2019. Mark your calendar for August 25, 2019.
Many thanks to the men at St Herman's House for their hard work maintaining the Greek Garden.
