Moment with the Mayor for November 9, 2018
Veterans Day Parade
On behalf of the Wadsworth community, thank you to all veterans and to those who currently serve in our military. We are so grateful for your courage and your commitment. The freedoms that we enjoy are made possible by your service. The Veterans Day parade will take place on Sunday, November 11, 2018, as the parade steps off downtown in front of the VFW at 10:50 a.m. Though it is a short parade, it is a meaningful way to honor and remember the brave men and women who have defended our country and who continue to do so, today. If you have a moment, please take time to stop downtown and join us.
