Message from the Mayor

“If You Value Your Freedom, Thank a Veteran.”  Please join me in honoring those who fought for our country and our freedom by participating in the Euclid Memorial Day parade and services on Monday, May 28th.   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 Monument next to City Hall.  A special thank you to all our veterans and their family members for your service and support of our community!  

This year, the American Legion Post 343 will be dedicating a new Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial.  This memorial matches the Korean War Memorial that was dedicated in 2016.  The Memorial will be dedicated after the parade as part of the Joint Veteran’s Council Ceremony – please join us to honor our Vietnam Veterans.

Euclid’s Relay for Life will take place on Friday, May 11th from 6:00 pm to midnight at the Euclid High School stadium.  This is a community effort to raise funds for cancer research and honor those who have been touched by cancer.  It is a moving event and a great example of the community coming together – I encourage you to participate. 

There is a great deal of activity occurring across the City – the Euclid Schools have broken ground on both the Early Learning Village and the Secondary Campus.  The Euclid Square Mall has been demolished and the foundation is being built for the new Amazon Fulfillment Center.  You will soon see E. 222nd Street re-surfacing begin.  The tennis courts are in process and will be ready for play soon.   Our service department is out filling pot holes, cleaning up parks and public properties and preparing for the summer season.  I know many residents are also working on getting yards cleaned up and improving their homes – thank you for caring about your community! 

I would also like to thank everyone who helped with the Big Clean on April 21st.  There were many residents, families, community groups, businesses, church groups, scout troops who helped to pick up litter through-out the City.  I appreciate these efforts and challenge each and every one to do your part every day to Keep Euclid Beautiful!  If we all take a small part, we can make a big impact.  If you are interested in getting more involved in Keep Euclid Beautiful, please call or email Linda Beck at or 216-289-2751. 

Thanks, I look forward to seeing you around town!
