Cleveland Heights Mayor Ed Kelley and other city and school officials will greet new community members, and neighbors will have an opportunity to meet one another and learn about local businesses and resources.

The hosts will offer light refreshments and merchants will provide a chance to win raffle prizes.

“No other event brings together people from many organizations specifically to welcome newcomers,” said Kirsten Radivoyevitch, one of the volunteer coordinators, in a press release. “We want people to get to know the community, and to let them know that this is a great place with a lot to offer. The idea is to encourage people to get to know their neighbors, get involved in the community, learn the benefits of shopping locally, and discover the great facilities right in their neighborhoods.”
