1Weapons Co., 3rd Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment, 4th Marine Division"Marine Forces Reserve must be READY, RELEVANT, and RESPONSIVE.

MARFORRES is comprised of two groups of Marines and Sailors – those who are not currently on active duty, and those who are. The former represent the core of our warfighting strength; the latter are the critical enablers who ensure we are always combat ready. Both groups are essential. Neither group could succeed without the other. We are all members of “the first team.” We must all meet “first team” standards.

The mission of Marine Forces Reserve (MARFORRES) is to augment and reinforce active Marine forces in time of war, national emergency or contingency operations, provide personnel and operational tempo relief for the active forces in peacetime, and provide service to the community.

24American Legion Post #281 Poppy Princess - Gracie Miles, Melanie Miles

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow servicemembers and veterans.

Hundreds of local American Legion programs and activities strengthen the nation one community at a time. American Legion Baseball is one of the nation’s most successful amateur athletic programs, educating young people about the importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and fitness. The Operation Comfort Warriors program supports recovering wounded warriors and their families, providing them with "comfort items" and the kind of support that makes a hospital feel a little bit more like home. The Legion also raises millions of dollars in donations at the local, state and national levels to help veterans and their families during times of need and to provide college scholarship opportunities.

The Royal Canadian Legion is proud of its military heritage and still maintains close ties with the Armed Forces today; however, over the years, categories of membership have evolved to include other members of the community."

355th Ohio Civil War ReenactorspNotes"Few events in history captivate the American imagination like the Civil War. Countless books, articles, and film scripts have been written on the subject, and Civil War discussion groups abound in communities coast to coast.

For many people, however, reading about and talking about the Civil War simply isn't enough. Some people want more out of history. They want the experience to be more tangible. They want history to come to life...
The 5th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, Company H, is a group comprised of such people. Our organization, with members from all over Northeastern Ohio, is dedicated to preserving the heritage of the brave men who fought and died in that terrible war.

By depicting the experiences of 19th century military camp life and recreating the drill and battle strategies of the era as accurately as possible, the 5th OVI provides its members and the public the opportunity to experience the Civil War in a way that no book can begin to express."
36Sons of the American Revolution"The SAR is a historical, educational, and patriotic non-profit, United States 501(c)3, corporation that seeks to maintain and extend:

the institutions of American freedom
an appreciation for true patriotism
a respect for our national symbols
the value of American citizenship
the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people.
We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions."
37Daughters of the American Revolution, Cuyahoga Falls Chapter"On October 8, 1921, the Cuyahoga Falls Chapter NSDAR was organized by Mrs. Arthur K. Billman. The Aaron Olmstead Chapter was also formed in Kent, Ohio, at this time.

One hundred and fifteen members of the Daughters of the American Revolution attended the organization ceremony for the Chapters at Hotel Franklin in Kent, Ohio.

State Regent, Mrs. William Magee Wilson of Xenia, Ohio, announced that the purpose of the meeting was to initiate the two new Chapters and install their officers.

The Cuyahoga Falls and Aaron Olmstead Chapters of the National Society of The Daughters of the American Revolution were known as the twins. These were the first two Chapters in Ohio to be organized on the same date."
38William Wetmore Daughters of 1812"The National Society United States Daughters of 1812 was organized on January 8, 1892. The purposes of the Society are to promote patriotism, to preserve and increase knowledge of the history of the American people, by preserving documents and relics, marking historic spots, recording familiy histories and traditions, celebrating patriotic anniversaries, teaching and emphasizing the heroic deeds of the civil, military and naval life of those who molded this government between the close of the American Revolution and the close of the War of 1812, from 1784 to 1815, inclusive, and to maintain, at National Headquarters in Washington, D.C. a museum and library of memorabilia of the period.
Women eighteen years of age and over are eligible for membership, providing that they can satisfactoily document their lineal descent from an ancestor who rendered military, naval or civil service between the close of the American Revolutionary War and the close of the War of 1812.

Com. William Wetmore Chapter was organized November 7, 2009 in Stow, Ohio. Our first project was to place a War of 1812 marker on the grave of William Wetmore in Stow Cemetery. This was done on July 31, 2010.

We have since done other markings and photographed the graves of the veterans of 1812 buried in Summit County and worked to get flag holders for each veterans' grave. We accomplished our goal to get headstones for each man who had an unmarked grave. Thanks to the VA and a grant from the County of Summit, this was finished in 2014. We have also done memorial ceremonies around the area for these veterans.

47Knights of Columbus 4th Degree"Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven and some of his parishioners, the Connecticut state legislature on March 29, 1882, officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society. The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.

The Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.

The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.

The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council to more than 14,000 councils and 1.8 million members throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Cuba, Guatemala, Guam, Saipan, Lithuania, Ukraine, and South Korea."

70Cuyahoga Falls Historical Society"The Cuyahoga Falls Historical Society began on November 7, 1979. Members consisted of Ray Sutliff, William Barth, John Bender, Connie Jenkins, John Wafer, Ione Hoffman, Virginia Bloetscher, and Nina Perkins. Eric Thompson, columnist for the Falls News Press and local historian spoke at this inaugural event. The Historical Society was incorporated as a non-profit organization on January 22, 1980.

In June of 1986, a small room on the third floor of the Quirk Cultural Center was donated by the Cuyahoga Falls Parks and Recreation Department to be utilized as a museum. As the museum grew and space became limited, a move was made to a full size classroom where viewing of the artifacts was made available. This occurred in March of 1987.

The year 2000 marked another significant move for the museum to 2751 Hudson Drive. The Cuyahoga Falls Historical Society called the first floor of this building home for the next six years.

The City of Cuyahoga Falls purchased and remodeled a building to house the new Cuyahoga Falls Historical Society Museum. The building at 2083 Cook Street, with the dedication and hard work of its members and many volunteers officially opened its doors to the community February 2, 2007."

78Ms Miki's GymansticsMy goal is to make every child feel special and challenged in a fun and healthy way. I am able to do this in my non competitive gymnastics classes. Gymnastics is a great basis for anything that your child may decide to do in the future. It builds body awareness, strength, coordination, discipline, leadership and creates interaction with other children.

87The CFHS Pride Alumni Marching Band "There has always been a great sense of dedication and commitment by all students who have endured the training and necessary testing that goes along with achieving membership in the Pride of Cuyahoga Falls, the Tiger Marching Band. Past members have always longed for the chance to return to their home field and march again.
In 1969, one former student was determined to make this happen. Camping out at every rehearsal, football game, etc., she convinced then director, Robert H. Feldbush, to let alumni march at the “Preview of Bands”. It was a small group, only enough to stretch from one sideline to the other, wearing whatever yellow shirt they could find. It was a one-time shot, no rehearsal. They started at one end zone and played “Tiger Rag” (doing the 6-to-5) straight down the field. The crowd was amazed, and the Alumni Band was born.
Over the next several years, participation was spread by word-of-mouth, rehearsals were established, routines and a concert number were added. Each year saw more and more alumni wanting to participate. During the ‘80s, the formal Pride Alumni Band Association was established. Our logo was born and it became a formidable organization.
The Pride Alumni Band Association was again on the move in the ‘90s with filing and receiving our own 501(c)3 designation, which allows us to help in fundraising events. The funds we receive help to offset the costs of the annual newsletter, provides each graduating senior with their Pride t-shirt, sponsors a scholarship for a graduating senior, and contributes annually in whatever way it can to the current band. Recently, the Pride helped by buying a brand new sousaphone and new cymbals.
This could not have been achieved without the help and support of both past and current directors, announcers, Board of Education members, the Mayor and certainly the past members of the Pride of Cuyahoga Falls, the Tiger Marching Band.
Today, the Pride is a highly-regarded organization in the community and if not the largest, one of the largest high school alumni band organizations in the nation. In addition to the “Preview of Bands” band show, we participate in the Cuyahoga Falls Memorial Day parade, the Stow Fourth of July parade and various other community activities and benefits.
All this came from the desire to come home “ONE MORE TIME”."

In the 34 years of its existence, the Cuyahoga Falls Oktoberfest has raised nearly $1M that has been contributed back to the city in various local charities and services including 3 river tour boats for the Cuyahoga River.

99Jane Jacobs"ane Jeanette Jacobs [Badini] (born June 16, 1924) is a former pitcher who played from 1944 through 1947 in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Listed at 5 ft 4 in (1.63 m), 130 lb., she batted and threw right-handed.[1]

Jane Jacobs was not a hard thrower, but her underhand fastball fooled batters because she was basically a curveball pitcher. Jacobs hurled an in-curve, out-curve, upshoot and specially a drop ball, her better pitch. Her most impressive start was having pitched a complete game-shutout one-hitter, but she fell victim to sidearm delivery when the league converted over on it.[2]

?Jake?, as her teammates nicknamed her, was born in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, where she started playing softball at the age of 11. In 1943, she was spotted by a league's scout when she was 18, but did not sign until a year later.[3]

Jacobs entered the league in 1944 with the Racine Belles, playing for them two years. She did not a have a winning season, even though she posted a 2.82 earned run average in 1945 and 2.86 in 1945, while compiling marks of 9–16 and 7–9, respectively. The team had a surplus of talent, so she was loaned to the Peoria Redwings the next year.[1][4][5][6]

In 1946, according to the new AAGPBL rules of play, the pitchers were forced to switch gradually from underhand to sidearm delivery. Jacobs made the transition, with no small effort, and led the Redwings pitchers with a 2.13 ERA, which was a career-high. Though her success was not reflected in her 6–12 record due to poor run support.[7][8]

She returned to Racine in 1947, when the league adopted full sidearm pitching regulations. This time she struggled to make the additional mandatory adjustment and went 2–6 with a 2.92 ERA. Then, for the third consecutive year the league set a new rule for a strictly overhand pitching in 1948. It spelled the end of Jacobs' career. I was afraid I'd ruin my arm, she explained with resignation.[7][9]

In a four-year career, she was managed by Racine's Leo Murphy and Peoria's Bill Rodgers. She finished with a 24–43 record and a 2.65 ERA in 88 pitching appearances.[7]

Jacobs returned to her home of Ohio, where she operated her own dry cleaning business for 40 years. She married Mario Badini in 1973, and was widowed after 16 years of marriage. Jane was diagnosed with cancer in 1994, but survived the surgery and the follow up treatments, according she said. After recuperating from cancer, she ran a ceramics business for a long time.[3]

She is part of Women in Baseball, a permanent display based at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York, which was unveiled in 1988 to honor the entire All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Though she did not attend the ceremony, she traveled to Cooperstown in 2009 to see her name in the hall. I will definitely be back, said the proud AAGPBL veteran.[10]

The native of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio made the long pilgrimage along with a niece, her husband and their two daughters. She also extended her Cooperstown visit to the A. Bartlett Giamatti Research Center, where she both donated photos and clippings from her AAGPBL career and received copies of other photos from the Hall’s archives. She even helped identify some former teammates who were unidentified in old team photos.[10]

At age 90, Jane Jacobs is one of the oldest living former AAGPBL players. She is still residing in her homeland of Cuyahoga Falls.[11]"
