The Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners and Wakulla Christian School are sponsoring the 5th Annual Veteran’s Day Parade through downtown Crawfordville on Saturday, Nov. 5, 2011 at 10am to pay tribute to Wakulla County Veterans.
The theme of this year’s parade will be, “Honoring All Who Served”.
The event will kick off with a Veteran Reunion breakfast at 8:30a.m. at Hudson Park. This breakfast will be free to all Military/Veterans and their spouses.
Following breakfast, the parade will begin at 10am with local participation including School bands, Veteran organizations, Military organizations (with troops and military equipment), and many others marching through downtown Crawfordville. The parade is open to any organization or club that wishes to participate and we’re asking if you are a Veteran in Wakulla or the surrounding counties, please come out and help us make this Fifth Annual Veteran’s Day Parade and Ceremony a great success.
Additionally, the Ceremony honoring our local veterans will begin at 11:30p.m. at the pavilion in Hudson Park to be led by Wakulla County Veteran’s Services Officer, J. D. Johnson. “This is a great opportunity for Wakulla County to take a few moments to offer our sincere appreciation to all Veterans for their tremendous sacrifices. Join me on November 5, 2011 to honor the men and women who have fought to preserve our way of life and the freedoms we have in this great nation,” requested J.D. Johnson, Veteran Services Officer.
