Default No parades this year!

Sadly for the first time in 15 years I will not be transporting vets for the Memorial Day parades this year. With all the COVID-19 stuff here all the local parades have been cancelled. But if the weather holds out, several of my buddies that help me drive every year and myself are going to drive the routes and have our own parades. Even if the people are not lining the roads, it's the principal behind it all and we will stop and pay our respects at the cemetery's for all the past Veterans. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Same here in WV.
Heck, just heard on the radio that our local 4th of July fireworks will also be canceled.
I love your thinking Dave!
My wife and I, are planning on driving the M715 through some of our local cemetery's with the flag a flapping, and stop to pay respects.
Then set up an outdoor display in our front yard.
Everyone have a safe weekend.

With all the local parades officially canceled due to this crazy crap, we decided to hold our own parade. We ran through Hart where we found several of the Veterans from the VFW finishing up a private ceremony. After which they formed up with us for a convoy to Pent-water where we stopped for lunch. It was great to see all the friendly people along the way.
