Blossom Time is the premier homecoming occasion of the year, along with the rapidly growing fall Hall of Fame/Homecoming Weekend.
Blossom Time Weekend has changed little through the years: It features two parades — one extravagant, the other patriotic, plus ribs and bluegrass in Triangle Park, hot air balloons, a carnival in Riverside Park, a 5.25-mile race that draws hundreds of participants from throughout northern Ohio and a traditional Memorial Day service at Evergreen Cemetery. The CFAA hosts an all-class reunion on the Friday evening at Town Hall with over 300 in attendance. We are looking for those that would like to be sponsors for the evening. Please see this Blossom Fundraising Letter if interested.
On Friday and Saturday evening, typically 10 class reunions are held. On Saturday afternoon, alumni baseball, soccer and lacrosse games are played at Lenny May Baseball Field and C.S. Harris Stadium respectively. Also on Saturday afternoon the alumni chorus will put on a moving concert. Each year the weekend brings us more memories of what makes our community and its people so special.
We would like to thank once again the Chagrin Valley Jaycees, who put on the weekend events. One can imagine the time and energy that goes into putting on so many events is tremendous. However, what many do not know is that the proceeds the JCs earn from the weekend will be redistributed to worthy organizations in the Chagrin Valley.
