Memorial Day - COVID style

From Euclid Memorial Day parade, 2019

Due to the Coronavirus and Governor’s directives, we have had to make the very difficult decision to cancel the Euclid Memorial Day parade and ceremonies.  This year would have been Euclid Joint Veterans Council 90th Memorial Day Parade.  While we are not able to gather together, we will continue the tradition of honoring those who died in service to our country in a meaningful way. 

On Memorial Day, we will broadcast a virtual Memorial Day program on ECTV (Spectrum Channel 1020, ATT Channel 99, “Euclid Community Television” on  While it will not be the same as being together in person--our respect, appreciation and gratitude are unwavering! 

Please do you part by joining us to:

  • Display your flag
  • Watch our Virtual Memorial Day program
  • Observe a moment of silence at 11:00am to remember those who paid the ultimate price
  • Thank those who served our country
  • Pray for those who continue to serve in the armed forces protecting our freedoms. 

Special Thanks goes out to the Euclid Joint Veterans Council, Chairman Andy Kiral, and its member organizations:

  • American Legion, Euclid Post 343   
  • Euclid Veterans Association  
  • Jewish War Veterans, Post 712
  • Korean War Veterans Association, Lake Erie Chapter 112
