The Cleveland Restoration Society is taking a moment to revel in the cultural side of historic preservation during their 2016 benefit party. The St. Clair neighborhood is the heart of Cleveland's Slovenian cultural heritage and the Slovenian National Home, a City of Cleveland Landmark built in 1924, is the center of this culture. On
Saturday, September 24, the Cleveland Restoration Society will take over the Slovenian National Home to celebrate Slovenian traditions with a twist.
Old world traditions are successfully mingling with new dreams in the St. Clair Superior neighborhood. Younger generations and new residents are working to revitalize the neighborhood while upholding ethnic traditions; they are infusing an unique heritage with a deep commitment to sustainability. Perfect examples can be found in the Cleveland Flea, Upcycle St. Clair, Loft Homes created
out of vintage worker cottages, Night Markets, the Kurentovanje Festival
and much more.

as we revel in the traditions of a proud past and celebrate a hopeful future! We will honor the unique contributions of three of the neighborhood's community leaders: Michael Fleming, Executive Director at the St. Clair Superior Community Development Corp; Rich Clark, President of St. Martin de Porres; and Rick Semersky, owner of
Sterle's Country House.
We're all Slovenian for the day!
