Veterans sought for parade


GREENVILLE — Any veteran in the area is welcome to participate in the Veteran’s Day Parade in Greenville on Nov. 11.

Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Chapter 57 Commander Robert Foster said the participants will be leaving Greenville Public Library a little before 11 and march to the courthouse on South Broadway, stopping in front of the clock.

“We have had a banner made this year,” said Foster. “And, we invite veterans to join in the parade.”

According to him, other features of the event will be a prayer, introductions, a 21-gun salute at 11:11 a.m., presentation of a wreath, and the playing of the National Anthem by the high school band. The combined color guard of the DAV, Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion will also be in attendance.
