Lions Invite Veterans To Ride Along During Parade
November 2, 2010
We will have a float in the parade on November the 13th of 2010 to salute the veterans. One of our banners for the parade has the message "Still Serving".
In the past years we have had veterans from the club on the float. This year we are asking any veteran that would like to ride with us to meet us at the Lions Club Building 30 minutes before the start of the parade. We want every veteran to be a part of the parade in their honor.
Several of our veterans will be dressed in their military uniforms from their tour of duty and if you would like to wear your uniform please do. You don't have to be member of the Lions Club to ride. Just come and enjoy the Town of Woodbury and Cannon County's appreciation for your time to our country.
We wish to honor all veterans who have served their country and their fellow man.
Once again we invite ANY and All Veterans to share the day and the ride with us.

Wish the county school students could be present to attend the parade and help honor the veterns. I am not sure some of them appreciate the importance these men and women have been in the history of their freedom. I did notice students from Woodbury Grammar were allowed to watch the homecoming parade the past few years. Wonder if this counts as a field trip?
