Due to weather conditions the Coffee County Veterans Association (CCVA) postponed Manchester’s fourth annual Veterans Day Parade and Ceremony on Saturday, November 12th. The parade will now take place on Saturday November 19th beginning at 10 AM, starting at Raider Academy; going west on Highway 55; turning toward downtown on Hillsboro Blvd; then onto Spring Street and ending at the Courthouse Square.
A Veterans Day ceremony will begin at 11 AM, on Manchester Square. James Dobson, Army Armor Office (Disabled/Retired) and VFW Post 10904 member, will serve as Master of Ceremonies and guest speaker.
The theme for this year’s parade is “Honoring Military Service Animals” in recognition of their valuable role in improving veterans’ quality of life. Bring your trained pet (stuffed toy animals are good, too) to be in the parade with you. Registration deadline is November 8th and the registration form is available on the Coffee County Veterans Association CCVA Facebook page, or upon request at email@example.com
Vendors are free to set up booths, trailers, tables and tents as they wish. There is no fee or space assignments, so arrive early to secure the best location. No post-ceremony entertainment or events are scheduled.
The parade registration form can be found on the VFW Post 10904 Facebook page or by contactingKimberly King at (251) 554-8836 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
