The Haslinden Cricket Club is one of the oldest and longstanding Jamaican organizations here in Cleveland, Ohio. Haslinden hosts the Annual Jamaica Independence Celebration in August. The event historically took place ay Kerruish Park off Miles Road. This event started as a gathering of club members and friends. the event has grown into Cricket Match, stage show, food vendors, sound systems, and an event where over a 1,000 people have attended in a single afternoon.
WRUW's Black Scorpio was the President for many years. "Basement" parties were hosted at Black Scorpio's home as well as Russian's home. Very enjoyable times.
