Stand Down 2010

Images from the 2011 Stand Down at the Masonic Temple on February 18, 2011 in Cleveland Ohio.

Another wonderful event staged by InterAct Cleveland. We estimated 550 people attended the health fair on Friday. There were a couple hundred volunteers who helped with food, distribution of hygiene kits, and hospitality, also the Cleveland Photography group provided amazing portraits to around 100 people. The Cosgrove staff served a great lunch. Luke, our staff assigned to the event, wanted to highlight the hand and arm massages that had a long line throughout the day. He also wanted to mention Youthability and their lovable pooches, but I have no idea what that means.

There were health screenings, access to social service providers, and entertainment for the population. This is a relaxing day for those who struggle every day to try to find a stable place to live everyday, and the weary who have endured a tough winter.

Your phrase: "He also wanted to mention Youthability and their lovable pooches" should instead read as "He also wanted to mention Youth Abilities and their treasured empathy-pooches". Thanks again, Brian, for your acute attention to the details of things.
