Bicentennial

Bay Village celebrated its bicentennial in 2010
The official date of Bay Village’s bicentennial was October 10, 2010. It was referred to as 10.10.10.

Beginning in January 2010, special events were presented each month.

Beginning in January 2010, residents were asked to turn on their porch lights in the evening to create an awareness of the settling of Bay Village by the Cahoon family on October 10, 1810.

Each city group, individual, organization and business from the Cubs, Brownies, Girl and Boy Scouts to senior and athletic groups to churches were invited to participate by sponsoring an event or becoming a part of an event during the first 10 months of 2010!

The big weekend of 10.10.10 found Cahoon Memorial Park the center of attention: Contests, food, entertainers, concerts, dances, historic city tours, Lakeside Cemetery tours with re-enactment entertainers in both the park and cemetery and much much more.

The bicentennial parade took place on Sunday 10.10.10 at 2 p.m. and ended in Cahoon Memorial Park where folks viewed the parade floats up close, enjoyed a city-wide picnic, watched a celebrity-packed presentation about Bay’s history and enjoyed the city’s birthday cake while watching the lighting of Bay’s new cupola on top of the old Cahoon family barn (now the Community House). The cupola was constructed on site in the weeks preceding the 10.10.10 lighting ceremony.

All of this finalized with a fireworks display at dark on 10.10.10!

Thanks to the bicentennial committee of Evelyn Allen, Dave Tadych, Carole Roske and Tom Phillips for coordinating this event.

by Thomas William Jones

CommunityHouseArt_500
The Bay Village Historical Society is offering limited-edition prints of the Cahoon family barn, built in 1882 and now Bay Village’s Community House.

The artwork was created by world reknown artist Thomas William Jones, a 1960 graduate of Bay High School. Jones graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art. His work has been included in many exhibitions, including the National Academy of Design, Butler Institute of American Art, Seattle’s Frye Art Museum, as well as private and corporate collections worldwide.

Jones’ reputation and mastery in watercolor has earned him acclaim at the highest levels, including the White House, where he was commissioned by former President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan to paint their 1985 through 1998 Christmas cards.

Only 295 signed and numbered prints were offered, and most have been purchased; a few remain. The image is 12 1/2″ by 16 1/2″; the overall size is 18″ by 22″. They are printed on archival paper using 12 separate ink colors. Prints are packed with foam board backing in a sealed, clear bag.

These limited-edition prints are only $85.00 each.

The original artwork is also being offered by the Bay Village Historical Society. The price is $22,000, with $11,000 of that going to the society for its bicentennial efforts. Much of the purchase price may be tax deductible.
