Calling all veterans
Blue Hill’s Veterans Day parade takes shape
by Faith DeAmbrose
With an informal Veterans Day parade held last year under their belts, members of the Duffy-Wescott American Legion Hall Post #85 are ready to “step it up,” said Reggie Nevells, and host something more organized this Veterans Day—Monday, November 11.
While the final details are still being shaped, Nevells said it will begin at 11 a.m. at the Blue Hill hall location, travel up Route 15 toward the Co-op and head back to end at the hall. The actual route is still under consideration.
Nevells said he welcomes all veterans to participate, noting there will be plenty of vehicles to ride in. “It may totally be a vehicle parade,” said Nevells, unsure of the specifics, but those looking for more information can contact him at 266-9959.
Regardless of the format, the parade will begin at 11 a.m. at the Legion Hall.
