Veterans Day Parade
The Veterans Day Parade and Ceremony in Greenville will begin promptly at 11 a.m. Friday. Nov. 11.
The parade route will be along Main Street, on both sides of Highway 89.
The parade will stop, and participants will park their vehicles and gather in front of Hunter Ace Hardware for a short ceremony in honor of all who served in the armed forces of the United States.
The keynote speaker will be new veterans service officer Mike McLeod, who served actively with the U.S. Marines from 1981 to 1985.
A sergeant, he served out of Cherry Point, N.C., and onboard the USS Saratoga in the Mediterranean.
He later retired from police work out of Reno.
“The transition to veterans service was easy because it’s basically applying rules and regulations in a humanitarian service to veterans and their dependents,” he said.
There will also be prayers and performances of patriotic music.
Parade entry is free, and so is admission to the event.
