Active duty and vets wanted for parade


VERSAILLES – The VFW and American Legion invite you to ride in the parade during Versailles Poultry Days on June 15. As they did last year, they will have a section set aside for the military.

They hope to see soldiers that have served our country in every branch of the service. They would like to see some uniforms, hats or anything that is patriotic. They want to show their love for our great country. They will have two people haulers, plus trucks. There is plenty of room for all.

Thanks to Johns IGA, they will be serving breakfast for the military, past and present. They will start at 9 a.m. on June 15 at Johns IGA parking lot and serve until it is gone or until it is time to line up for the parade. If there is bad weather, they will be in the IGA garage, in the dining room.

They will have hats, chicken dinner tickets, drinks, hot dogs and more.

Individuals, clubs and businesses are being sought to sponsor a soldier for a day during the Poultry Days Parade. Make your donation to Dave Miller.
