The Bay Village Foundation bronze plaque makes a great Christmas present – Westlake

Christmas time is a great time to retreat from our busy lives and review the past year. It is an opportunity to spend time with family and friends and celebrate old traditions as well as introduce new ones. The Bay Village Foundation’s bronze plaque program is one such tradition that celebrates the family while giving back to the community.

The Bay Village Foundation has been creating a lovely place to remember loved ones for nearly 20 years. The foundation’s bronze plaque program was set up to give families and friends the opportunity to provide permanent recognition to Bay citizens in one central location. Donors who contribute $ 2,500 or more may request a plaque to honor the life and work of Bay Village residents, living and deceased. The plaques are engraved with personalized text and attached to the T. Richard Martin Footbridge in Cahoon Memorial Park.

Every Memorial Day, the Bay Village Foundation holds an outdoor public ceremony to announce those who have been honored with a bronze plaque. For the past several years, television personality Jon Loufman has served as the host for the annual event. The music is traditionally provided by Bay High School students.

The public is welcome to participate in the Memorial Day program, which takes place after the Bay Village Parade and Veterans Memorial Service.

All contributions to the Bay Village Foundation are used to support grants to Bay Village organizations and scholarships for Bay High School graduates. All awards are made to make Bay an even better place to live, work and play.

For more information about the bronze plaque program, please call 440-899-3490 or visit the foundation’s website at The deadline to order a bronze plaque for Memorial Day 2022 is March 30, 2022.
