The event will be held Monday, May 31, starting with a parade at 9 a.m. from the Loveland Elementary School, 600 Loveland Madeira Road, to the Loveland Veterans’ Memorial. If you or your organization would like to be in the parade, registration is still open. Register online at https://www.lovelandoh.gov/FormCenter/Parade-Registrations-12/Parade-Registration-65.
Immediately following the parade, a ceremony will be held at the Loveland Veterans’ Memorial, located at the intersection of West Loveland Avenue and Riverside Drive. The ceremony will feature a speech from COL. Brad Wenstrup, U.S. Representative of Ohio’s 2nd congressional district.
After the ceremony, participants are invited to attend a dedication of a WWII Honor Roll Monument at the Loveland Museum Center, 201 Riverside Drive. The monument was constructed in 1944 as an “Honor Roll” to recognize local men and women serving in World War II. It served as a central location where family members could leave updates on where their loved ones were serving and how they were doing. Members of the Loveland Historical Society and John Hill Construction partnered to restore the monument.
