CLEVELAND, Ohio — A day of thanks will be offered August 5, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the USS Cod Submarine Memorial, 1089 East Ninth Street, featuring free tours for veterans and their families, music and service information.
Visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch and use the submarine’s newly installed picnic grove, and spend the day visiting the other nearby attractions of Cleveland’s North Coast Harbor.
In addition, veterans can visit information displays set up by private and governmental organizations that provide services to veterans and their families.
The city of Cleveland is providing free parking to veterans attending the event. A brief welcome program and deck gun salute is scheduled for 11:30 a.m.
“A beautiful day in August beats a dreary November day in Cleveland for celebrating the service of our veterans,” said Cod Director Paul Farace.
The memorial’s phone is (216) 566-8770.
