Euclid's Memorial Day Parade is a Classic

For the past 88 years, the City of Euclid has honored and celebrated our Veterans.

This year, as in the past, the City held its annual Memorial Day Parade.  Many residents and guests lined the parade route to celebrate, honor, and remember our veterans and active military personnel.  Many individuals and entities gathered, too, as parade participants.  Veterans, Mayor Kirsten Holzheimer Gail, members of her Administration, council members, members of Euclid Safety Forces, and representatives of various community groups, businesses and churches all marched together in a beautiful tribute to our veterans. 

As judges of the parade, we would like to thank those who realize the importance of this annual event, especially the Euclid Joint Veterans Council who have made a continued commitment to keep this holiday tradition alive.  We also would like to thank the following participants who were awarded participation trophies:
