Our nation owes
a debt to its fallen
heroes that we can
never fully repay.

The Memorial Day parade is scheduled for May 27, 2024.

Each year we mention veterans living in our community. If you are a veteran or know someone who is a veteran and would like to participate, please call Jerry Ritch and give him your name, branch of service, and war in which you may have served. 330-657-2015.

On May 27 at 9:30AM in the Township`s service garage Valley Fire will be providing doughnuts and coffee. While at the service garage, please consider stopping by the new location of the Peninsula Library Museum. The museum is on the ground level and you enter through the doors of the brick building.

There will be a brief service at the Memorial Grove at the Peninsula Library at 10:00AM. This service commemorates the service of former staff, board members, and friends of the Peninsula Library who have passed away.

We expect the band to arrive around 11:00AM. From here the parade goes up to Cedar Grove Cemetery for a short service.

For the Boston part of the parade, we will again start at the parking lot on Riverview Road at the south end of Boston Mills Ski Area. We are using the two driveways at the south end of their parking lot. There will be hot dogs, water, lemonade, and bakery for all. After a brief rest the parade will continue to Boston Cemetery for another service.
