Veterans Day Parade Nov. 11 to honor our veterans
On Monday, Nov. 11 Pickens County will observe Veterans Day by honoring all veterans who have served our great nation.
Immediately following the parade, join the veterans and parade participants at our Veterans Memorial located at Lee Newton Park. There will be a ceremony and patriotic music.
Come be part of the celebration and show the patriotism our county is known for. Our county is honored to be the home of over 3,000 veterans who make up over 12 percent of our population. That is one of the highest percentages in the nation. It’s obvious that veterans love Pickens County. Let’s return that love and say thank you for their part in defending our freedoms.
All individuals, organizations and clubs are invited to participate in the parade and festivities.
We hope the county will line Main Street to honor and show appreciation for the “All who gave some and the some who gave all.”
