A MESSAGE TO YOUNG AMERICANS OF SYRIAN ORIGIN By KHALIL GIBRAN (1919) I believe in you, and I believe in your destiny. I believe that you are contributors to this new civilization. I believe that you have inherited from your forefathers an ancient dream, a song, a prophecy, which you can proudly lay as a gift of gratitude upon the lap of America. �� I believe that you can say to Emerson and Whitman and James, ��In my veins runs the blood of the poets and wise men of old, and it is my desire to come to you and receive, but I shall not come with empty hands. ��It is to stand before the towers of New York, Washington, Chicago and San Francisco saying in your heart, ��I am the descendant of a people that built Damascus, and Byblos, Tyre and Sidon and Antioch, and now I am here to build with you, and with a will.�� It is to be proud of being an American, but it is also to be proud that your fathers and mothers came from a land upon which God laid His gracious hand and raised His messengers. Young Americans of Syrian origin, I believe in you!

Gino Colage
Gino Colage was born in 1926 in a small village in Abruzzo, Italy. He came to the United States as an infant and grew up in a small village south of Pittsburgh. Gino was drawn to Cleveland in the early 50��s by the city��s expanding industries. Gino is a World War II veteran. He has worn many career hats and he has many personal interests - among them, local and national politics. At 89 years young, Gino remains an avid bowler and an enthusiastic Steelers fan. Gino has a deep-rooted love for Italy and is very proud to be Italian American. He has spent the last 24 years passionately and voluntarily taking care of the Italian Cultural Garden in Rockefeller Park. He has volunteered countless hours of service to the City of Cleveland and to the Cleveland Cultural Gardens Federation by planting, watering, weeding, tilling the soil, and doing whatever he could to keep the Italian Cultural Garden a beautiful outdoor monument for the public to enjoy. Mr. Colage believes that the Italian Cultural Garden is a sanctuary of our heritage, a place that reflects the pride of the Italian people and the pride of all the citizens of Cleveland. Gino encourages everyone to become active participants in their communities, to preserve and to promote the rich history, traditions, language and culture of their roots. He reminds us: ��Each nationality��s garden speaks to us of its history and it challenges the future generations to keep the past alive in the present.��
Ernie Mihaly
Ernest Mihaly was born in 1920 on East 122nd Street in the Buckeye Road neighborhood where he still lives. He was baptized at the First Hungarian Lutheran Church. He grew up in this same Hungarian neighborhood and attended Hungarian Language classes. He was drafted during WWII at age 18 and was stationed in Saipan, Okinawa and the Philippines. Once back in the U.S. he met a Magyar girl, Goldie Feher, and nine months later (11/20/48) they were married. He enrolled in Cleveland College then Western Reserve. He started his own Painting and Decorating Company in 1950 where he worked until he retired in 1990. From the beginning, Ernie has embraced and cultivated his Hungarian roots. For the last 35 years he has been President of that same First Hungarian Lutheran Church where he was baptized. He is a proud and active member of the Cleveland Hungarian Heritage Society, United Hungarian Societies, Hungarian Cultural Center of NEO, Hungarian Charity Club, Cleveland Hungarian Development Panel and The Hungarian Cultural Gardens. He is almost single-handedly responsible for the restoration of the Hungarian Garden, working tirelessly on everything from digging to planting to repairing to fund raising and many things in between. To this day he works hands-on to support all things Hungarian. He was honored in 2013 by The Cleveland Hungarian Heritage Society and inducted into the Cleveland International Hall of Fame in 2014.

Mary Hamlin
Mary was born in Northern Ireland and the family (parents and brother) left when she was four years old travelling by steam ship for six weeks to South Africa, and then by train to then Southern Rhodesia. Her two younger sisters were born after Mary��s arrival in Africa. She had all her schooling there, including University, at a new College of London University. This later became the University of Zimbabwe. Mary met her future husband, Clive, as she finished high school, and they were married in Rhodesia four years later. In the meantime, she became an English teacher, with her first job at a high school in London, UK. A week after the wedding, Mary left Africa with her husband for Canada, where she continued to teach and Clive pursued a graduate degree. Clive was recruited to join Case Western Reserve University Medical School, but the complications of the US Immigration system made it necessary for them to temporarily leave the US. They spent a year travelling in a VW bug throughout Europe, the Middle East, the Indian sub-continent, and much of Africa on less than $10 a day. They acquired their first home in Cleveland Heights, and Mary joined the local chapter of The Daughters of The British Empire (DBE). Some of the members of that group took care of the British Garden. Mary soon took over leadership of the DBE, also joined the English Speaking Union, and became active in Cleveland Opera. She developed a special affinity with the Cultural Gardens, having visited many of the countries represented by the gardens. Mary has been with the Cultural Gardens for over 35 years. During that time, despite Mary��s best efforts, support for the British garden dwindled. Aging supporters, loss of the British Consulate, and corporate support by BP and others all took their toll. For the past few years, Mary tended the garden essentially single-handed, and now is not able to continue actively. Mary is gratified and deeply appreciative of other cultural garden members who have come forward to help improve the British Garden, as it approaches its 100 year anniversary.

About the Cleveland Cultural Gardens
Written by Dan Hanson The Cleveland Cultural Gardens are part of Rockefeller Park which consists of land donated by John D. Rockefeller on Cleveland��s Centennial celebration in 1896. In 1916, a journalist and Shakespeare enthusiast named Leo Weidenthal helped establish the Shakespeare Garden which later became the British Garden. Weidenthal saw the mul- tiplicity of nationalities that were in or coming to Cleveland and had a vision of using this City of Cleveland land as a tribute to them. The second garden was the Hebrew Garden and it was dedicated in 1926. Later in the 1920��s and 30��s other nationalities began working on gardens to represent their own heritage. After the Great Depres- sion, much of the infrastructure was installed with the assistance of the WPA (Work Projects Administra- tion) including bridges and retaining walls. The history and growth of the Cultural Gardens is a mirror of the history and growth of Cleveland. The early gardens were predominantly European (Italian, German, Czech, Polish, Hungarian, Irish, Slovak, etc.) because that��s who had been settling in Cleveland. World events influenced the Gardens. When Yugoslavia split, so did the Yugoslav Garden into Slovenian, Croatian and Serbian Gardens. With the fall of the Soviet Union came Latvian and Estonian Gardens joining the Lithuanian Garden. As people from other areas came to Cleveland, interest in gardens for their heritage grew and new and proposed gardens focus on the Middle East, Asia and Africa. There is renewed interest and effort to complete African American and Native American Gardens. Soon there will be 35 or so gardens repre- senting many of the diverse nationalities that make Cleveland home. Because of the Cultural Gardens, Cleveland is the only street in the world with a large statue of Mahatma Gandhi on a street named for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Not to mention the statue of Mother Teresa at the other end of the road. Nowhere else can you find scientists like Copernicus, Tesla and Madame Curie mingled with composers such as Bach, Liszt, Chopin and Beethoven. The Cleveland Cultural Gardens Federation is the group of volunteers who have created, maintained and improved the Gardens over the years. They have given their time, talent and treasure to build gardens, raise funds for monuments and do the mundane but necessary tasks like weeding and planting flowers – all for the love of their heritage and their City. The Centennial celebration of the Cleveland Cultural Gardens begins today. Please join us as we cel- ebrate 100 years of this unique treasure.

The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie - write, shoot, and edit - in just 48 hours. On Friday night, teams draw a genre from a hat. They are then given a character, prop and line to include in their films. On Sunday night, in a wild dash to the drop off event, the film is turned in - and teams celebrate. The film is then screened at a local theater in front of an audience of filmmakers, friends and families. 25+ Awards!
