2020 Fireman’s Festival

From a recent post on the Greenwich Fire/ Tri Community Joint Fire’s Facebook Page.

Due the the circumstances of today’s issues in the state of Ohio and even the entire country, We regret to inform you the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 fireman’s festival.

This was not an easy decision to make for the firemen. The decision was made based on the fact that we are unable to purchase the meat for the festival (it’s just not available) and that no rides have been inspected by the State of Ohio. ( no rides are available). We also took into account possible health issues involved and the uncertainty the public parks will even be open to use by July.

Please note that there is no person or group to place blame on. We held out as long as possible to make the decision, trying to make this work any way we could. We hope to see life return normal soon and and to make 2021 the best festival yet.

A letter from Mayor Wesley E. Sallee

A letter from our Mayor Wesley E. Sallee,

Greenwich Citizens,

It whole heartedly bothers me to have to say that Due to the ongoing “Stay at Home” order and limited people that can be gathered at any event that the Governor DeWine and Dr. Acton has put us in. I have to announce that the Memorial Day Gathering at the Veterans Memorial has been cancelled.

However, the Department of Veteran’s Affairs said there will be a way for Americans to pay tributes to veterans virtually. The Veterans Legacy Memorial website contains a memorial page for each veteran and service member interred in a VA national cemetery. Starting on May 14, the website will allow online visitors to leave a comment as a tribute to their lost love ones.

“The tribute allows visitors to voice memories and appreciation for a Veteran’s service,” the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs said.

After the May 14th decision from the Governor allowing non-contact sports to start on May 26th. There still is no direct path moving forward with the requirements. I want to make sure that even if people don’t agree with the Governors actions, we as village representative must abide by the rules that are handed down to us. We cannot by law, shorten or lessen the rules that are put on us. We are hoping that within the next few Days/Weeks we will know more on when and how the Parks can be open safely to the public for use. We have to wait and see what the requirements will be for public restrooms until then we have to keep them closed. I am doing everything I can to find ways to get our village opened back up and allow our citizens the freedom that they should have.

I hope everyone will take their time in actually moving forward and do it with the safety of not only our children but for everyone in our community.

Wesley E. Sallee

Mayor- Village of Greenwich
