This Saturday Past (8 November) we held a Veterans Day Parade in Springfield MO. This parade could not have taken place with out the generous support and donations from our Sponsors and Supporters. There are many who helped but I would like to give special thanks to Sheriff Arnott and Sgt Cantor and all the Deputies that provided security for the event. Youngblood Auto and Friendly Ford were gracious enough to loan us vehicles for the parade. Krispy Kreme Doughnuts once again provided snacks for the participants along with water from Associated Grocers. Signs Now did a great job in designing and producing our signs for the Grand and Deputy Grand Marshalls and the Guests! AMMO - Air and Military Museum of the Ozarks was instrumental in planning and helping produce this event. Thanks to Brundage-Bone for their Pump Flag Pole and their personnel on staging. Last but not lease I would like to thank the great vendors of Mikes Unique who helped in staging and providing traffic control. Please let all the sponsors on our page know you appreciate their Support. Read More...
