    The Euclid School is about to start a new life and that calls for a celebration! Some of you may remember our 2014 event at the school, the building was vacant and had just been purchased by Michael Mincberg with Sight Real Estate and he had a vision for what the building could become! Now his vision is complete and the Euclid Schoolhouse apartments are about to open with old classrooms having become apartments. 

    You won't want to miss this celebration and evening of fun with tasty food for nibbling, cash bar and music. Join in and be among the first to see how history ha been put back to use at the Euclid Schoolhouse! Thanks to Michael Mincberg and Sight Real Estate for bringing Euclid School back to life and for helping to host this event.
