Uptown Westerville is a Place to Honor, Remember, and Thank

In 2009, America is observing Memorial Day on May 25th.

Memorial Day weekend welcomes summer and pays tribute to those who have sacrificed, and who do sacrifice, to insure that we have weekends to enjoy with friends and family year round.

As tennis great and humanitarian Arthur Ashe said: True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.

Westerville's Memorial Day parade begins on May 25th at 9:45 a.m. at College and State.

The parade route proceeds south on State past the armory and Veterans' Memorial, up Bishop, to the cemetary on Knox. Our Memorial Day parade isn't all brass bands and floats and celebrations and big crowds like July 4th, it is a heartfelt, dignified march to honor and we encourage you to come out to State Street Monday morning to take beat to appreciate and honor or find a small moment to keep a thought for those who serve sometime during the day.

This year, Rotary Club of Westerville Sunshine is creating the Field of Heroes at Cleveland and County Line West. The Field of Heroes begins May 23rd and runs through May 25th.

The members of the Westerville Uptown Merchants Association wish you a wonderful, safe Memorial Day Weekend and Summer.
