Several hundred people showed up to support the veterans and the Greenville community.  Both sides of what used to be Main Street in Greenville were lined with well-wishers thanking the veterans and wishing the community the best as it begins the rebuilding process. Photo by Gregg Scott

Residents turn out to support the annual Greenville Veterans Day Parade

Plums County residents turned out to help Greenville celebrate Veterans Day with its annual parade. Chester resident and Boy Scout leader Gregg Scott, who also reports for Plumas News, attended the event with his troop and shared these photos from the event.

This group photo of the veterans from all the different units along with Chester Boy Scout Troop 36 from Chester was taken at the finale of the parade just before they all relocated near the Evergreen Market for lunch.  Post 568 Commander and Parade Coordinator John Banks noted that 180 people had signed up for the lunch.

What parade would be complete without an equestrian unit?  They always seem to be a big hit, especially with the young ones, and this year there were two. Photo by Gregg Scott
The parade drew support and entrees from many locations in the county. Floats, Fire Engines, K-9’s, 4-H units and even a fishing boat from the Almanor Fishing Association. Right after the parade was over these folks were handing out hats, t-shirts and fishing poles to the young people at this booth. Photo by Gregg Scott
