Memorial Day

May 28, 2018

Memorial Day

Monday, May 28th will be the annual Memorial Day Parade and formal observances to honor those that gave their life to our country and those that have served our country to support the freedoms we all enjoy everyday. All Veterans are welcomed to join the American Legion, VFW, and VVA to march behind these organizations in the parade to be recognized.  The parade will step off at about 8:45 a.m. from Huntington Park and march West on Lake Rd to the Lakeview Cemetery for services and recognition of the city founders that served early for our country.  The parade will reform on Lake Rd and march East to Cahoon Rd and turn South to end at the Gazebo. Community leaders and some local honorees will be recognized at the Gazebo ceremony. A 21 gun salute, taps, and patriotic music will be part of the ceremony to honor our local Heroes and current Veterans in our community.  All are invited to line Lake and Cahoon Rd to recognize the veterans, and enjoy the BHS Band, First Responders, and Scouts.  Please remember that this is a solemn occasion and we request that you provide due respect for the event.  

This is a great American tradition, and a great way to start your holiday. 

The Bay Village Foundation to Honor Local Residents through their Bronze Plaque Program During the Annual Memorial Day Observance

The Bay Village Foundation will honor Russell D.Brill, Henry and Betty Laub, Gerald and Joyce Maurer, Wayne A. and Jeanne M. Reese and Jean and Julius Zajac, with permanent bronze memorial plaques to be installed at the T. Richard Martin Cahoon Memorial Bridge on Monday, May 28th. The program will take place at Cahoon Park North under the tent following the Memorial Day observance at the gazebo. Friends of the families and the public are invited to attend the annual ceremony and view the plaques currently installed on the footbridge, along with the new memorials.

Soloist, Natalie Surdy will sing "The Water is Wide" as part of the dedication ceremony.

Megan Evans (violin I), Abigail Cho (violin II), Christina Randazzo (viola), Emily Boggess (cello) and Lillian Graber (bass) of the Bay High Honors String Quartet, will also perform.

The Foundation will also announce and present checks to the winners of the annual Bay Village Foundation grants during the program. Four scholarships will be awarded to Bay students this year (increased from three to four for 2018), including the T. Richard Martin Memorial Scholarship that is derived from the income of a perpetual grant contributed by the Martin family.

The Bay Village Foundation has been creating a beautiful place to remember loved ones for 17 years.  The Village Foundation Bronze Plaque Program was established as a way for families and friends to give permanent recognition to Bay citizens in one central place.  Donors that contribute $2500 or more may request a plaque to honor the life and work of Bay Village residents, living or dead.

For more Information about The Bay Village Foundation estate planning, the grant application process or contributions towards a plaque, please call 440- 899-3490.  Applications for scholarships and guidelines for proposals are available at www.thebayvillagefoundation.org
