The Annual Memorial Day Parade kicked off at 2:00 PM.    Local legend Terry Ginn, along with Steve Jones and Stan Piatt, did the announcing this year.  This year's Grand Marshal was 46-year Suffield resident Jim Trout, president of the Acme Fresh Market StoresTrout was a long-time president of the Suffield Jaycees, which later became the Suffield League.  Once again the parade was sponsored by the Suffield League.  

Jim TroutThis year's Grand Marshal Jim Trout has been a Suffield Resident for 46 years and is a 1975 graduate of Field High School.  He and his wife Debbie have two children, Jennifer and Jeffery, who both attended Suffield Elementary and also graduated from Field High School.  Jim believes that Suffield is the best community anywhere to raise a family.   Jim is currently the President of Acme Fresh Market stores and has 44 years’ service which started with him packing groceries at age 16 at the Ellet store.   Jim is a past President of the Suffield Jaycees, coached Suffield Baseball for 12 years and is a member of St. Joseph Parish.  Jim loves golf and spending time with his four grandchildren Madalyn, Landon, Ella, and Cooper.   He and his wife Debbie also support our community with three college scholarships yearly for Field High School graduating seniors funded through the Acme Scholarship Fund.  Oddly enough, his next door neighbor Jack Evans was last years Grand Marshal.

On Monday, prior to the parade, the Suffield Lions Club and Boy Scout Troop #267 teamed up to present the 21st Annual Pancake Breakfast at the historical Town Hall.  The Suffield Township Historical Society sold hot dogs and pop from about 1:00 PM until after the parade.

And something new this year is an eventthe jungle book movie on Friday June 2nd.  The Suffield Lions Club is presenting the family movie "The Jungle Book" in an outdoor showing at 8:30 PM at the Lions Park, which is located next to the Suffield Elementary School.  This was planned for last fall, but weather caused a cancelation.  This year, if rain spoils the evening, the movie will still be shown, but at the Town Hall.  You are encouraged to bring a chair, blanket and your whole family to enjoy the evening.  Refreshments will be provided.  Any questions, please call Dan Kuntzman at 699-6856.

Wingfoot Lake State Park is Suffield's only park.   It was opened by the Ohio State Parks & Recreation Department in 2009.  Goodyear had operated the park since the 1960's as a private playground for its employees and for corporate retreats.  As the company footprint grew smaller in the Akron area Goodyear decided to close the park in 2006.  To learn more about the park, such as rental of the facilities, visit the park's website:  http://parks.ohiodnr.gov/wingfootlake
