Message from the Mayor

Gratitude and thankfulness – that is what comes to mind as I think about the coming month. 

We will celebrate Veterans Day on November 11th at 11:00 am with a ceremony at Euclid City Hall (585 E. 222 Street) conducted by the Euclid Joint Veterans Council.  On Veterans Day we celebrate and honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.  Thanks to the Euclid Historical Society, we will also have a display at City Hall to honor the 100th year anniversary of the end of World War 1 – their display will be at City Hall beginning 11/5.  You can also learn about about the new Euclid Hometown Heroes Banner Program!  Please join us in thanking and honoring those who served and affirming the continued commitment to promoting peace and mutual understanding in our world.

Our Faith leaders and the community will come together with our third annual Thanksgiving Prayer Service on Sunday, November 18th at 3:00 pm at Saints Robert and William Church (367 E. 260th Street).  This event is organized by our Faith in the City leaders and provides an opportunity to come together in the spirit of Thanksgiving to celebrate unity and the unique gifts of our faith community. 

Our Annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony will take place on Friday, November 30th at Shore Cultural Centre.  Please join us from 6:00 to 9:00 pm to kick off the holiday season with music, activities, food, ice carving, and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus.  A big Thank You to Shore Cultural Centre and our many sponsors, partners, and volunteers for making this event happen!  It is another great opportunity to come together to as a community!  

I truly appreciate the many churches and organizations who offer special assistance during the holiday season or are providing a Thanksgiving meal.   Truly, a community who cares!  If you would like information about these offerings, please call my office, 216-289-2751.

As we celebrate Thanksgiving, I am grateful for the many blessings I have – a wonderful family, good health, a rewarding job, support and assistance from great staff/ friends/ neighbors, and a community who cares!  I am grateful to all of you – who care about our community and are doing your part to make Euclid a strong community!  I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!
