Steve Zilber is the president of the Cleveland Go Club. He explained the ancient game of Go at their booth at the 2017 Cleveland Asian Festival. Steve said the game of Go requires both sides of the brain whereas Chess may use the left side primarily. Steve also told about the Cleveland Go Club and their free weekly meetings which include lessons and games.




Lt. Colonel Joseph Meissner served with the Green Berets in Vietnam. He connected with Miss Gia Hoa Ryan who came from Vietnam in 1971 and formed the Friendship Foundation.
