Procession returns to Memorial Day services

After the city held abbreviated Memorial Day celebrations the past two years due to the pandemic, this year will see the return of the procession to Maple Shade Cemetery.

On May 30, residents are invited to gather at the War Memorial on Public Square for a Memorial Day service beginning at 9:30 a.m.

Following will be a procession to Maple Shade, where city leaders and presenters will hold a graveside service. After the services, attendees can walk across the street to Drug Mart on Brecksville Road for a hot dog cookout. The Independence High School marching band will perform at the cookout and all donations made will benefit the band. ∞
