Women and men from all across our nation have been putting their lives on the line to defend the United States of America for centuries. The city of Knox is teaming up with the St. Joe Valley Blue Star Mothers of Indiana #6 to honor those heroes with a welcome home parade. It will take place on Sept. 13th.
All veterans are invited to participate and receive recognition for their nobility. The plan is to line-up behind Five-Star, go down Main Street and walk to the Starke County Courthouse. Following the parade, there will be a few special speakers on the courthouse steps.
The South Bend Medical Foundation will also have their bloodmobile set up, and have agreed for every successful donation they will donate $5 to the local chapter of Operation Care Package.
This event is a way to express gratitude to each and every person who has served for this country. Any questions can be directed to Sandra Boldt via email at, firstname.lastname@example.org
