Amesbury's Veterans Day Parade scheduled for Nov. 12

AMESBURY — The Amesbury Veterans Day Parade will be held Monday, Nov. 12, starting at 10 a.m.

All those marching are requested to muster in front of the Fire Department on School Street by 9:30 a.m.

The procession will begin at 10, proceeding down Main Street to Amesbury Middle School in front of the Dough Boy monument. Small flags will be provided to the youth who are marching as well as along the parade route.

This year’s parade is being sponsored by American Legion Post 187. The keynote speaker will be Nancy Moore, widow of decorated Korean War veteran Thomas W. Moore, who was Amesbury’s first battle casualty in the Korean War.

Veterans of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to attend, whether in uniform or not. Veterans who are physically able to assist the community’s senior veterans by carrying the flags are strongly encouraged to participate as are veterans with limited mobility who need transportation along the parade route.

In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will take place in Amesbury City Hall Auditorium. All questions regarding the parade can be directed to Amesbury Veterans Services at 978-388-8136.
