MONTE VISTA—The Monte Vista Community Fund would like to invite all to help pay tribute to local veterans and their family members who are serving, have served and in some cases, sacrificed their lives in the many wars— past and present, for our freedom. It is also important to remember those whose resting place will not be known until the last day or perhaps never, the POW/MIA veterans.
This year’s Veterans Day parade will be held on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 10 a.m. The parade will line up at Stars and Strikes Bowling Alley. From there, it will go west on Second Avenue to Adams Street to Dennis Street. The parade route will then turn right on Dennis and head north to Second Avenue. Finally, the route will turn right and end at the Faith Hinkley Veterans Memorial Park.
The Annual Veterans Tribute will take place at the Faith Hinkley Veterans Memorial Park immediately following the parade.
Please join in on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 6:30 p.m. at Central Auditorium for a special SLV Big Band veterans tribute concert. The cost is $10 in advance and $12 at the door. All proceeds will go to finish the Faith Hinkley Veterans Memorial Park.
With questions, please contact Debbie Garcia at 580-5565 or Colette Skeff at 852-3435. Parade entry forms can be faxed to 852-5600 or mailed to the MV Community Fund, P.O. Box 797, Monte Vista, CO 81144.
