Kiwanis invites Westlake to honor veterans

Ed Sheehan, Westlake veteran of the Marines, fought at Iwo Jima.

Memorial Day will soon be here. The Westlake Kiwanis Club invites you to participate in our annual community parade and services that day, Monday, May 27.

The parade and service will honor those civilians and military that sacrificed so much to preserve our freedoms and protect our shores – many of those fallen were members of our Westlake community. If you participated in the parade or in the services in Clague Park last year, the Westlake Kiwanis and the community appreciate your participation and hope you will take part again this year. 

If you missed this vibrant and moving event we hope you will join us this year. There is plenty of room for various groups of marchers, vehicles and floats. If you wish to participate in this year's parade and or service, please contact Rick Grane at 440-829-0974 or
