Oct 11, 2017
It is with great pride that Mayor Don Walters invites the community to attend a ceremony to honor the Cuyahoga Falls High School Tiger Marching Band with the Honorary Boulevard Street Naming Award. The band will be recognized on Saturday, October 21, at 9:00 a.m. The section of Broad Boulevard at the intersection of Third Street will be named "Tiger Band Boulevard." The street sign hanging ceremony will be held rain or shine. The community is also invited to an official presentation at the City Council meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the Natatorium in the Erie Room, on Monday, October 23.
“It is an honor to recognize the work and community pride of the Cuyahoga Falls High School Tiger Marching Band,” stated Mayor Don Walters. “My Administration could not be more proud of the tremendous fundraising efforts that the band members undertook to buy their new band uniforms and that they were named Best High School Marching Band in Greater Cleveland. I am thrilled to invite the community to celebrate our Falls Pride by honoring the Cuyahoga Falls Marching Band with Honorary Boulevard.”
The Tiger Marching Band is an auditioned group of approximately 175 students in grades nine through twelve at Cuyahoga Falls High School. In addition to performing in the marching band, all students are also enrolled in one of the four curricular bands.
The Honorary Boulevard Street Naming Award is an initiative used to pay homage to the people and organizations that selflessly give back to Cuyahoga Falls residents and the city as a whole. To qualify, a nominee must have made extraordinary volunteer contributions to the local community, arts, environment, education, neighborhoods, health, or human services. They are recognized for their substantial volunteer efforts, time commitments, and financial donations that directly impact the betterment of the community. It is important to note this is an honorary gesture only and does not change the official designation of Broad Boulevard for postal purposes.
