As the sixth annual Military Appreciation Day tribute approaches, organizers have unveiled one of this year’s key fundraising tools: the always popular T-shirts whose design defines the 2018 community event.

But it’s not all about the deep-blue garment.

Although T-shirt sales contribute mightily to the fundraiser — whose proceeds will support the inaugural Bobby Taylor Memorial Scholarship — Military Appreciation Day planners also continue to welcome donated items for the silent auction.

Additional sponsors are also being sought, and another key recruitment need is volunteers to work the springtime event. This year’s Military Appreciation Day commemoration — which is again coordinated by the Lee University Flames baseball team and head coach Mark Brew — will be held Saturday, April 21.

T-shirts are available for purchase at the downtown main office of the Bank of Cleveland, which is again serving as primary sponsor for Military Appreciation Day, as well as at the Cleveland Daily Banner offices at 1505 25th St. N.W.

Officials with Cleveland City Schools and the Cleveland Police Department used a public gathering Tuesday night to answer some of the community’s questions on school safety.

The school district held its Community Meeting on School Safety at Cleveland High School, where panelists answered questions concerned residents submitted via the district’s website.

Dr. Russell Dyer, director of Cleveland City Schools, kicked off the event by explaining how the district looks at a variety of factors related to school safety.

Fires, natural disasters and other types of crime are just some scenarios for which school districts must plan. Dyer said safety committees at each school and on the district level look at ways to ensure they have plans in place.

He explained these plans are very in-depth, yet they are flexible. As new situations — such as the Valentine’s Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School  in Parkland, Fla. — surface, district leaders look at whether or not changes need to be made.
