Veterans Day Parade

Compatriots and friends of the SAR, DAR, and CAR,

Members of the Patrick Henry, Alexander Hamilton, and William Hightower chapters of the Sons of the American Revolution along with members of the Andrew Carruthers, Thankful Hubbard, and the Balcones Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, gathered today on the Congress Ave. bridge to march in the annual Austin Veterans Day Parade.  The morning was overcast and there was a slight chance of rain, but not a drop fell.  Spirits were high among the entire line and the crowd was jubilant.  Sounds of cheering erupted several times as we marched down Congress Ave towards the State Capitol building.  We saw many veterans  in attendance including several World War Two veterans. If you haven’t seen this parade I highly recommend it and if you haven’t marched in it, well there’s nothing quite like it.  Thank you all for your participation today and thank you veterans for serving our great nation!

I’ve just posted new pictures from our 4th of July celebrations at the Dell Diamond and Allendale parades.  You can tell by the looks on the faces of those in attendance that they are enjoyable events! If you are interested in participating in either of these, please reach out to me and I will get you to the appropriate person.
