Alive Inside Returns

Alive Inside is a documentary film directed by Michael Rossato Bennett released in 2014 that explores the miraculous power of music to help re-kindle memories for Elders living with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of Dementia regardless of how far advanced the fatal disease is. The trailer for the film features "Henry"
Excerpt from a Recode.net article posted July 19,2014:
Audiences first encounter Henry hunched over in his wheelchair, head down, hands clasped firmly together, unresponsive to the world around him.As soon as a pair of headphones are placed on his head, the 94-year-old dementia patient opens his eyes, sits up straight and begins swaying and humming along with the music. Henry speaks animatedly about his favorite band leader, Cab Calloway, and even begins to emulate the jazz artist’s style of scat singing — at one point launching into a rendition of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.” The dramatic transformation, which takes place against the bleak institutional setting of the nursing home where Henry has spent the last decade of his life, is a powerful set piece for Alive Inside.
Last seen in the Cleveland area in March 2014 during the Cleveland International Film Festival at Tower City Cinemas the 2014 Sundance Audience Award winner for Best Documentary will be screened at the Cuyahoga County Public Library Parma-Snow Branch Auditorium as part of the annual Make Music Day celebration that takes place around the world on June 21st of every year. There will be multiple musical performances by local musicians beginning at 10 AM and ending at 6:30 PM culminating in the screening of Alive Inside at 7 PM followed by a short discussion.
If you or anyone you know or love have been directly or indirectly affected by Alzheimer's / Dementia , if you are a Care-Giver or a Healthcare professional or even a musician looking to make an impact we recommend attending this event, supporting your local musicians and seeing this movie.
Drop-In anytime from 10 Am on to hear some great musical talent

There has been another school shooting in the United States with more "thoughts and prayers" for the victims of this latest mass shooting. But as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow morning, there will be another mass shooting in the United States. Whether it is at another school, or a place of business, a church, a shopping center or just out in public; this is an epidemic that must stop!

The Blossom And Cleveland Museum Sail Into History

Fish specimens include Doctorfish or Barbero (top left) and Rock Hind (top right).

The events leading  to "Sailing Through Science: the Voyage of the Blossom" at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, began with a map. Museum Librarian and Archivist Wendy Wasman was hunting more cabinet space when she found a 1923-era map--“Base Map for Plotting Route of the Schooner Blossom South Atlantic and Indian Ocean Expedition”. Intrigued, Wasman searched deeper into museum archives and found such good material that the museum elected to mount its own exhibit. She also found the voyage was a tactic for the then-new museum to stock its collections. “The expedition was incredibly well-documented for its time, “ Wasman says in a exhibit, including the base map, now on display in the museum’s Fawick Gallery. The map shows the expedition crossing the Atlantic four times, totaling 22,000 miles, touching land in Africa and South America, plus numerous islands. The effort collected 13,000 specimens of fish, birds, lizards, etc. Plans calling for side trips to the Indian Ocean and Antarctica were cancelled by necessity, as the trip stretched out well past its original two-year plan.

The President's Corner

House Bill 523 was signed into law by Governor John Kasich in September, 2016, legalizing medicinal marijuana in the state of Ohio. The law allows patients with certain medical conditions to purchase and use medical marijuana with a doctor’s recommendation. The law also permits cities to decide whether or not to allow the cultivation, processing, and/or dispensing of medical marijuana within their jurisdictions. Soon after the passage of the law, Parma’s officials began studying the issue, and after months of debate, approved vendors for all three stages of production. Over the past several weeks, many residents have asked me what the status of medicinal marijuana is in Parma.

MAY’s Asset Category: COMMITMENT TO LEARNING. Education has improved immensely in the past 20 years. Today, more young people are taking high-level courses, fewer of them are dropping out, math and science scores are on the rise, and more students are entering college after high school. But that doesn’t mean a commitment to learning happens naturally in all young people. Instilling this important trait involves a combination of values and skills that include the desire to succeed in school, a sense of the lasting importance of learning, and a belief in one’s own ability. This commitment is strongly influenced by the school environment and relationships with family and peers.

I Believe

According to research, people benefit when their positive emotions outnumber negative ones by three to one. All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching the truth, rebuking error, correcting faults, and giving instruction for right living, so that the person who serves God may be fully qualified and equipped to do every kind of good work. An important step in a young person’s life is when he or she changes from parental dependence to Godly dependence. This point in one’s journey of life will vary from person to person. Blessings may be in plain sight or hidden behind clouds of anxiety and despair, but they are always part of our lives. Change occurs from the bottom up. It takes concerned, inspired, and dedicated individuals to make it happen.
