Veterans’ Parade and Award Presentation Sunday, Nov. 10
A Veterans’ Parade followed by a presentation of the Veteran of the Year award will be held on Sunday, November 10, beginning at 1 p.m.
This year’s Parade Marshall is Kenneth Hoffman, who was last year’s Veteran of the Year winner. The guest speaker will be long time radio personality Paul Arca, who now runs Creative/ Commercial Production at 590 The Man/ 1380 The Woman.
The Veteran of the Year Award will be presented to David D. Miller, for his dedicated service to our nation in the US Navy during the Vietnam War and his continuing service to veterans and to the community in the following years.
The 2.5-mile parade steps off at the corner St. Charles and St. Francois, goes east on St. Francois, one block south on New Florissant to East on St. Catherine, North on Waterford Drive, and ending at the James J. Eagan Center. Following the parade there will be a presentation of the Veteran of the Year award. Refreshments will be served inside the Eagan Center for parade participants.
The parade will have over 70 units participating, including military vehicles, drum corps, marching bands, elected officials and many others paying tribute to our veterans.
This event was first brought here at the suggestion of Mr. Norman Sirna, a member of the Veterans’ Commission. Mayor Tom Schneider and the City Council invite everyone to come to this event and salute the men and women who have and continue to serve in the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard.
