President’s Letter
 
As the Strongsville City Club is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, we reflected back on the original objective of the club with was to cultivate and promote civic interests for the city of Strongsville.  That objective is still our standard and I am proud to say that we have lived up to that standard for half a century !!
 
City Club members, their families and volunteers donate countless hours to support our two annual community events.  We kick off the summer season, as we have each summer since 1986, on the Commons with the Rib BurnOff.  This three-day event brings the community together to enjoy live entertainment along with fantastic food, including rib vendors from around the country. “Not the biggest, just the best” is the motto of the Rib BurnOff.  As summer winds down, the City Club invites the community to join each other for Breakfast on the Covered Bridge.  Since the first breakfast served in 1983, the tradition of a leisurely morning spent with friends enjoying a home-cooked breakfast in a beautiful setting is a great way to spend a September morning before heading off to the Day at the Chalet or to a Browns game !
 
More than 20 years ago, the City Club provided the vision and funding for Strongsville's landmark Clock Tower on the Commons.  The Clock Tower is a beacon of civic pride for all Strongsville residents and those passing through the Route 82-Pearl Road intersection.  Some of our other major projects include funding for Catan Stadium, the Food Bank, the Strongsville Cemetery fence and the Pandrangi Tower at Southwest General Health Center.
 
Most importantly, City Club members hold a loving place in our hearts for the Strongsville Special Olympics athletes and their families. We proudly fund their various events throughout the year and are so proud of their success and living the credo of Special Olympics, “Let me win.  But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”

More information about our events and projects can be found on these pages. City Club members thank the residents of Strongsville, our sponsors, our families, and countless volunteers as well as the surrounding communities for their fantastic support of our efforts.
 
 
 
     Thank you,
