Happy New Year! Welcome to 2021!

Downtown was a popular place during the Christmas season with many admiring the Ocoee Street rooftop and tree lights, the Courthouse, Community Christmas Tree, First Street Square lights, snowflakes, and the beautiful displays by so many businesses. Most nights many families were out and about taking pictures and enjoying the festive surroundings. 

Thank you to Mayor Brooks for his leadership on the project, and thank you to the lighting sponsors:  Allan Jones, Logan-Thompson, P.C., Robert Thompson, Mainstreet Cleveland, and the City of Cleveland. And, a special thank you to the City’s Urban Forestry Department for hanging the lights on the Community Christmas Tree and at First Street Square. 

No January Meeting

Due to the high number of active COVID cases there is no membership meeting in January. Mark your calendar for the next scheduled meeting on February 22 with a program by Mayor Brooks.
