Completed in 1985 the Gazebo is still the focal point of the Square. This club is also partly responsible for the lighting of the Green and Gazebo during the holidays.
The flag memorial, the gazebo on the city green, the pavilion at Memorial Park and the skate park at Memorial Park are just some of the ways we've given back to the community.
mission & vision
No need is too small and no voice is too quiet to be heard. We will devote the time and energy necessary to educate, advocate and provide.
This project is life-long. Old eye glasses are collected at the North Royalton Library and the given to St. Vincent's Lions Eye Clinic for distribution to those in need. Please donate where you see this sign.
Completed phases one and two in 2001, the picnic shelter and deck to the lake have added a wonderful place for outdoor parties and gatherings. This project was completed with the help of the North Royalton City Departments of Building Engineers and City Council. It is used almost every weekend throughout the spring and summer.
