On November 11, 2015, the City of Delray Beach will proudly pay tribute to all veterans with a special ceremony and "hometown" parade.
This year, Lt. General William J. Ely will serve as Grand Marshal. At 103 years old, he is the oldest living West Point graduate and the oldest living veteran in South Florida. Veterans from WWII, the Korean War and the Vietnam War will also be honored for their military service.
As we are losing our older veterans every day, this is a great opportunity for students and parents to participate in American history and learn more about the self-sacrifice of past generations.
The ceremony begins at 9am in Veterans Park, 802 NE 1st Street. Immediately following, the parade will proceed along Atlantic Avenue from the park to the Delray Beach Center for the Arts at Old School Square.
At the conclusion of the parade, the City will distribute preprinted 2-hour community service forms to every student in attendance.
Join us at the 2nd Annual Veterans Day Ceremony and Parade to commemorate our veterans who gave so much to protect our freedoms. For more information, please call the City of Delray Beach at (561) 243-7010.
