Bronze memorial plaque makes unique gift

Each Memorial Day, The Bay Village Foundation hosts a well-attended public ceremony in Cahoon Park. The event honors friends and family with the dedication of a beautiful bronze plaque. For some families in the past, this was their perfect gift for a loved one.

A bronze plaque is engraved with personalized text and permanently installed on the footbridge of the T. Richard Martin walking trail overlooking the lake in Cahoon Memorial Park. 

The plaques are installed at the request of family, neighbors and friends for a contribution of $2,500 or more. The Memorial Day program is a beautiful outdoor service featuring musicians and soloists from Bay High School. Television personality Jon Loufman serves as emcee of the event.

A bronze plaque can be ordered through March 31, 2020. All contributions to the Bay Village Foundation are distributed to Bay groups following grant requests. The funds are offered to private, non-profit, non-sectarian projects. Your support makes a significant difference to the many volunteers that serve Bay Village tirelessly.
