To Hilliard Veterans Day Parade Participants and Interested Parties:
It is with great sorrow that the William R Schnug Memorial American Legion Post 614 announces the cancellation of the annual Hilliard Veterans Day Parade, scheduled for November 8, 2020 at 2:00 PM.
Many Veterans who participate in the parade or join us as spectators are members of the older generation and have been deemed a high-risk category for Coronavirus (Covid-19). Since the parade environment does not lend itself to social distancing, we feel the risk is too high. In addition, there is much uncertainty regarding the status of high school bands, JROTC units, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and numerous other groups and organizations who have participated in the parade in the past. Our only safe, prudent option is to cancel the event.
We would like to thank you for your past participation and interest in our parade, and we sincerely hope you will join us in honoring Veterans from all eras, all conflicts, and all branches of service in 2021. The 2021 parade will occur during the day on either the Sunday before, or the Sunday after Veterans Day. We feel this date change will make the parade a more pleasant experience for both participants and spectators.
We are still planning on having our annual FREE Bean and Cornbread dinner this year on Veterans Day (November 11, 2020), but details have not been finalized. As the date draws near, check our Facebook page and/or Destination Hilliard (destinationhilliard.com) for upcoming information on this event.
Please honor our Veterans on November 11, 2020. Stay healthy and stay safe.
“For God and Country”
