“The Veterans Day Parade keeps getting better, and we’ll have a very good parade this year, ” said Eugene Wilson, commander of American Legion Post 219. “We encourage people and groups to enter the parade and then for the community to attend the parade on Nov. 12. This is a great opportunity to honor our veterans.”
