Beachwood Boredom-Busters: June 7 Edition

Posted on June 7, 2019 at 11:16 AM by Mayor Martin S. Horwitz

Today is National Gun Violence Awareness Day in the City of Beachwood. Every day, 100 Americans are killed by gun violence. Typically each month at least 52 women are shot and killed by an intimate partner. On average there are nearly 13,00 gun homicides in the United States. I am proud to be a member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns. We should all renew our commitment to reduce gun violence and pledge to do all we can to keep firearms out of the wrong hands.

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month. Beachwood is home to the Cleveland-area chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, which is preparing a massive awareness and fundraising program on June 21, the longest day of the year. Mark your calendars now to participate in a yoga class at Cleveland Yoga & Barre (3737 Park East Dr., Ste. 209) at 4:30 PM to benefit programs and research by the Alzheimer’s Association!
