Before we even reached mid-month, the Cleveland Cultural Garden Federation had great cause for celebration. On Dec. 3, the Cultural Gardens were honored by the 100 Club of the Western Reserve Historical Society at its annual gala. We were inducted into the club that honors institutions and businesses that have reached or passed their 100-year anniversaries.
On Dec. 5, the Federation held its annual holiday party, which drew 140 attendees. Hosted by the Russian Cultural Garden, the event featured dancing by the Cleveland Ballet and the Paprika Girls and singing by the Cuyahoga Cossacks. With a record turnout, the garden delegates and their guests enjoyed a great time and reflected on their considerable achievements in 2018. Below, members of the Cleveland Ballet take a bow before appreciative party-goers.
