A most sincere thank you is extended to the many volunteers who came out to Brookdale Cemetery in Elyria on Saturday to honor our veterans as part of the WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA program.  Elyria was honored to be chosen among 1,200 locations across the country to participate in this national recognition.   Wreaths from Columbia Falls, Maine adorn the headstone of veterans buried at Brookdale to spread patriotism and commemoration for the ultimate sacrifices made for our country.   

Thank you for your service!

Mayor Holly Brinda


The City of Elyria’s Holiday Lights display at Finwood estate on North Abbe Road has never looked better.  If you haven’t yet visited, be sure to get there soon.  Santa will be there through this Saturday night and after that you can still drive through to see over half a million lights of magical winter wonderland!  This is truly an opportunity to make a lasting family memory – and it’s free.  Donations of canned goods for those in need are welcomed and appreciated, but not required.   Have a wonderful holiday season, Elyria.
