Some of you have known members of our armed forces who gave their life for our country, or others who came home disabled after fighting and serving bravely. We should remember that many of our brave veterans are getting on in years. Few opportunities remain for us to say thank you to these heroes and to let them know of our admiration and gratitude for their many sacrifices.
Every second Saturday of November, we honor veterans from throughout Central Virginia in the Gordonsville Annual Veteran's Parade. Our hope is to have as many veterans as possible marching and riding in the parade, along with their supporters honoring them with patriotic music and floats . Come and feel that patriotism, and be sure to bring your children to enjoy the pageantry and to instill the values of respect and honor that have made this country great.
The 2021 Annual Veteran's Parade was held on Saturday, November 13, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. Fifty-two parade entrants, from high school bands to veterans groups to local businesses, participated to celebrate and honor the veterans in our community.
The 16th Annual Veteran's Day parade will be held on Saturday, November 12, 2022 at 2:00 p.m.
