Hello Everyone,

At our last meeting on July 21st, 2015, we voted on a new logo that was developed in concert with one of our CGEA members. We wanted to update our old logo but still incorporate its elements into a fresh updated look. It was approved as the new logo unanimously!

Cleveland-area chiefs and officers lend a hand at Ohio historic site

Coast Guard chief petty officers and officers assigned to Cleveland-area units, along with other volunteers, dig an 11-foot by 17-foot area Aug. 17, 2013 for a brick patio where an Ohio historical marker will educate visitors about the Henninger House, one of the oldest structures in Parma, Ohio.
