Entries still accepted for Veterans Day parade
Entries are still being welcomed for the 2019 Veteran’s Day parade in Anna.
The parade is set for 11 a.m. on Veterans Day, which is Monday, Nov. 11. The parade will be in Anna.
The parade once again will be hosted by the Veterans of Foreign Wars Carroll P. Foster Post No. 3455 of Anna.
The VFW is always looking for parade participants willing to show their patriotism and respect for the nation’s veterans.
Businesses, organizations, clubs, groups and others who would like to be a part of the parade can pick up an entry form at the VFW post home near Anna during regular business hours.
Entry forms also can be mailed. Information is available by contacting the VFW at 833-5182.
The deadline to submit an entry form is Nov. 1.
The theme for this year’s parade is “Welcome Home.”
The VFW notes that many of the nation’s “service men and women never received the proper heroes welcome they deserved upon return from their time in combat zones, and this is our opportunity to show them how grateful we are for their sacrifice.”
Complimentary chili and hot dogs will be served to participants at the VFW post immediately following the parade.
Certificates will be distributed to winning entries at that time as well.
