On what would have been his 100th birthday this December, we pause to remember the memories and contributions of our member Richard (Dick) Hughes.
Mr. Hughes, a veteran of World War II where he served in the the US Army Air Corps, was a valued member of the Strongsville Kiwanis Club. Many members will remember him as a key part of the team of volunteers that raised the flags in the town square as he drove the trailer, with his trusty dog in the seat next to him.
Dick was a fixture of the club, and would be seen volunteering his time at many events, including working at Read Around The World each year. One of our favorite memories was when Dick was the key speaker at a special meeting to describe World War II and his experiences. The attendees, which included a number of veterans and members from neighboring clubs, were spellbound while Dick showed off some of his memorabilia and told stories of the war.
This summer the club held a very special ceremony at the Freedom Trail in Strongsville to remember and honor Dick, including dedicating a “memory brick” included in the city’s Walk of Valour.
The Strongsville Kiwanis Club has announced the dates for their American Flag Display for 2022.
Clean-up day will be Wednesday, May 11 and will start immediately following the morning meeting. Members will prepare the grounds and sleeves.
All flags and sponsor signs will be raised at 9:00AM on Saturday, May 28th. Flags will remain in place through the 4th of July holiday, and will come down on Wednesday, July 6th.
Flags will again be raised on Saturday, September 3rd in advance of the Labor Day holiday.
Flags will remain up for September 11th and will be taken down after Veterans Day.
