Veterans Day parade scheduled
Greenville Herald-Banner - 10/28/2018
Oct. 28--Veterans will be honored one week from today during the Hunt County Veterans Day Parade.
The parade is scheduled on the morning of Nov. 3 in downtown Greenville. The Disabled American Veterans is hosting the event again this year and the organization's John Turner said several groups have already signed up.
"So far we have the National Junior ROTC, the Hunt County Veterans Honor Guard and the Hunt County Sheriff's Posse, Family First Home Health and Vitas Innovative Hospice is again supplying the luncheon," Turner said. "The VFW is going to have a float this year, the Greenville Fire Department is going to post their giant American flag and they may also have a fire truck in the parade. And the Greenville High School Band will also be in there."
Turner said he anticipates announcing a grand marshal for the parade in the next few days.
The DAV is looking for groups, businesses, and individuals to join in the event and is inviting floats, walkers, classic cars, church groups, schools, biker clubs, and sponsors to participate, along with volunteers to assist in helping organize the start of the parade.
The parade will line up at the Farmer's Market at 9 a.m., with the parade starting at 10 a.m. and proceeding west on Lee Street to the Landmark building where all veterans are invited in for coffee, tea, water and socializing until the free lunch is ready.
