Men and women from all walks of life representing every branch of military service will be the guests of honor Saturday, when the city of Williston hosts the annual Levy County Veterans Day Parade.

Step-off is at 10 a.m. Nov. 11. More than 35 units have pre-registered to participate in the parade down Noble Avenue including floats, motorcycles and horse and buggies.

Following the parade, everyone is encouraged to come to the Heritage Park Pavilion where Mayor R. Gerald Hethcoat's annual Veterans Day Program will take place.

In addition to patriotic music, where all branches of the military are honored with their anthems, Williston City Council President Charles Goodman, a Vietnam veteran, will deliver the keynote address.

Following the hour long ceremony, the city will serve hot dogs and chips to those in attendance.

Dr. Ken Schwiebert is still looking for veterans to ride in the parade. If you want to participate, call the Chamber of Commerce at 528-5552.

For more information, call Latricia Wright at 528-3060.
