Virtual Merchant Meeting-3.15.jpg

Presented by Cleveland Neighborhood Progress and Destination Cleveland in collaboration with the City of Cleveland Community Development Corporations.

Eat & Explore CLE is part of a wintertime initiative to boost business and outdoor activity in city neighborhoods. As residents and visitors travel through town for dining and shopping needs, we invite them to patronize restaurants, explore other nearby small businesses, and take advantage of unique, safe and friendly outdoor spaces.


The Eat & Explore CLE initiative runs from January through April. Each week, we’ll feature a different city neighborhood. Click on the neighborhood name to learn more about special activities happening in the neighborhood.

Did You Miss our Virtual Jazz for Harvard Event Last Summer?  Enjoy the video below and recapture the moment.

Below are Photos of the Harvard Community Services Center Social Distance Line Dance event.


This event was coordinated, managed, and paid for by the Harvard Community Services Center.

To support the community during this stressful time of COVID-19 when most people are shut-in, HCSC wanted to provide an event that was pleasant, but at the same time safe; therefore we reached into our budget to pay for a Line Dance Instructor and Live Streaming. You can view the Videos on this page and our YouTube Channel.
Our office was flooded with calls from individuals that saw the event on social media acknowledging HCSC for being a community partner; and allowing a group to come in and host a Line Dance Event.
However, this is not accurate.
The Harvard Community Services Center planned this event from beginning to end; and we acknowledge our HCSC staff for all of their hard work of implementing the Social Distance Line Dance event.

The event was free and open to the public.

Thank you Robert Robert Freeman Hubbard for the Live Streaming, Brenda Lee Simpson, for Instructing the Line Dance, and the Smokey Soul Food Truck.
We also want to acknowledged our President/CEO,
Mrs. Elaine Gohlstin for allowing the implementation of such events, which can be challenging to plan in the midst of COVID-19 rules and guidelines.

Look Back At Miles Heights Village, Cleveland's Black Suburb:
It’s widely known that Carl Stokes was the first African-American elected mayor of a major U.S. city – but he wasn’t the first elected in the state of Ohio. That honor goes to Mayor Arthur Johnston and the Village of Miles Heights – which no longer exists.
