The annual Seminole County Veterans Day Parade, cancelled last year because of the devastation caused by Hurricane Michael, returns this year and is set for Monday, November 11th in downtown Donalsonville. Line up begins at 9 a.m.
The parade, established to increase attendance at the 10 a.m. ceremony in front of the Seminole County Courthouse,
will travel down Second Street beginning at Tennille Avenue and ending at the Courthouse.
All veterans, officers, enlisted military personnel and family member(s) of servicemen and women currently deployed are encouraged to participate. It is the hope of parade organizers to have Second Street, from Tennille Avenue to the Seminole County Courthouse, lined with cheering, flag waving citizens. Veterans, family members and all who intend to be a part of the parade are asked to meet beginning at 9 a.m., Monday, November 11, on the lawn behind Ponder
Enterprises at the corner of Tennille Avenue and Second Street.
For businesses located on Second Street this is the perfect opportunity to celebrate local veterans by participating in the celebration, making posters, waving flags and cheering as the parade marches past your location. All businesses throughout Seminole County are encouraged to place signs in their windows, to thank the community’s veterans for their
Plans are for veterans to ride in golf carts or vehicles in the parade. Parade organizers would like churches, businesses and individuals to sponsor groups of veterans. A sponsor group would be responsible for securing transportation and making banners/posters for its assigned group of veterans.
