Message from the Mayor
Happy May! I hope you are enjoying spring in Euclid. For all those able to help with the Spring Clean-up, thank you! We have been working hard to spruce up our community and I appreciate all the residents, businesses, schools, churches, neighborhood associations, beach clubs and community organizations who took the time to help. Thanks to the “Keep Euclid Beautiful” group for organizing this effort and others. We need to continue this effort throughout the year – it is up to all of us to help Keep Euclid Beautiful! If you want to learn how you can help, please call 289-2751.
Welcome to Chipotle who opened their Euclid site (22250 Lakeshore Blvd) on April 27th and has been busy ever since. We are glad to welcome them to our mix of dining options in our downtown district. We are also glad to welcome Jack Flaps SAMMICH at 651 E. 185th Street. Stop by for a great sandwich, meats or catering. Euclid Brewery (21950 Lakeshore Blvd.) will be adding outdoor seating soon, we appreciate their continued investment in our community. Our local businesses depend on our support – please remember to shop, eat and drink at our local businesses.
Euclid Relay for Life will be Friday, May 19th from 6:00 pm to 12:00 am at Euclid High School Stadium. Relay for Life is a volunteer run event that brings together the community to remember loved ones lost to cancer, honor the survivors of all cancers, and raise funds to help in the research, education, care and prevention of cancer. I hope you will join us for at least part of the event, it is always very moving.
I hope to see you at the Euclid Memorial Day Parade, Monday May 29th. The theme is “If You Value Your Freedom, Thank a Veteran.” The day begins at the Euclid Cemetery with graveside services at 7:45 am followed by a ceremony at St. Paul’s Cemetery at 8:15 am. The parade begins at 10:00am at E. 228th and Lakeshore Blvd and proceeds to City Hall. Following the parade will be services at the Veteran’s Memorial next to City Hall. Please join me in honoring those who fought for our country and our freedom by participating in these activities. A special thank you to all our veterans and their family members for your service and support of our community!
I would also like to send a special thank you and Happy Mother’s Day to the mothers and grandmothers!
