CleveBWRa

On Friday July 21, 2017, The City of Cleveland celebrated its 221st Birthday.  When Moses Cleveland’s surveying party landed on the shores of the Cuyahoga River, they surveyed the new Connecticut Western Reserve.  The team divided the area into town lots and named it Cleveland.

 The 2017 recipient  of the Herrick Award was Western Reserve Society SAR past president, Gilbert True (far right).  True has done a great deal to promote Cleveland and is very deserving of this award.
