The annual Veterans' Day Parade, a cherished Delaware County tradition, serves as a testament to our unwavering commitment to honoring the brave men and women who have selflessly dedicated themselves to serving and protecting our nation. The parade is a unifying event that brings together our community in a spirit of solidarity, and allows us to stand side by side, to honor those who have defended our nation.
Veterans have made significant sacrifices for our country. From missing family milestones to facing the perils of war, they deserve our utmost respect and recognition. The parade is a collective expression of remembering these sacrifices and ensuring they are never forgotten.
The parade also serves as a platform to raise awareness about the needs of Veterans and their families. It encourages our community to support programs and organizations dedicated to improving the lives of Veterans.

We encourage you to bring your friends and family to celebrate the bravery and dedication of our Veterans.
