|Posted: Wednesday, November 7, 2012 12:00 pm |
|Veterans Day is Monday, but Weakley County will honor its local veterans this weekend. |
The annual Veterans Day Parade will be held Saturday starting at 10 a.m.
Rolling Thunder Chapter 6 will again sponsor the parade and is inviting all area residents to “come help us remember those that gave of themselves so that we can be free to live the way we choose to do so in this country.”
The parade will start at the UTM football stadium parking lot and follow the route used for the Soybean and Christmas parades.
Many Veterans Day parades actually take place on Nov. 11, no matter which day of the week it falls on. RTC 6 chose to do either the weekend before or after as a matter of convenience for area residents.
If you have a group that would like to participate in the parade by actually marching, walking or riding please contact either Mike Morel at 731-431-2411 (evening) or Led Symmes at 731-514-4191 for more information on the parade. Published in The WCP 11.6.12
