We need 50 Corvettes for the Veterans Day Parade!
 
On November 11, at 11:00am the local area expects to see 50 shiny Corvettes carrying Wounded Veterans and their family members in the Huntsville Veterans Day Parade. Currently, we have 28 members signed up with the possibility of 30 cars. Since this event is less than two weeks away, we need your help in signing up and getting other members to sign up to transport these amazing visiting American patriots. The parade committee has asked that we have no more than 50 cars but we are still short 20 to 22 cars. We currently have 40 wounded veterans and 25 Care givers. Four are in wheel chairs and one is blind with a guide dog. That is the only service Animal we are aware of.
 
For those of you wanting to eat breakfast, we'll meet at the Cracker Barrel on Drake Avenue at 8:00am. Please assemble/park in the Ashley furniture store parking lot south of Cracker Barrel. For those of you not wanting to eat breakfast, please meet the rest of us in the Ashley furniture store parking lot before we depart for the VBCC staging area at 9:30am. As in the past, placards will be distributed prior to departure to each vehicle. Cars without a placard are not allowed into the staging area. Our cars need to be in place in the old Meadow Gold parking lot adjacent to the VBCC by 0950. When you arrive in the staging area, we ask that you immediately apply the placard to the car door. These apply with no-damage-stick tape and have worked well the past few years.
 
We have an expected loading time with the veterans of 1020-1025 and at 1025 we will be moving to a staging area to be in place by 1030. The parade will start at 1100. The route is reversed this year. The main reviewing stand will be in front of the Veterans Memorial Park. At the end of the Parade we will vacate on to the Heart of Huntsville for off loading to the buses.
 
Let us show these Warriors how much we appreciate their service, sacrifice, and commitment to this great country on their special day of recognition.
 
Thank you to all who serve and all who support,
 
Ken Ille, President
