The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 34 celebrated the Fourth of July by inviting veterans and other parade participants to the Legion clubhouse for hot dogs, chips, cookies and soft drinks prior to the start of the parade.
Unit members decorated two 16-foot trailers with patriotic decorations for veterans and American Legion family members to ride on in the parade.
Trailers were provided by David Montgomery with Ted Montgomery as the driver and All Through the House with Jacob Hibbs as the driver.
When the parade completed the tour through dowtown, the veterans gathered at the Lawrenceburg Green. Each veteran spoke about where he served, which war or military engagement, and the number of years of service.
Unit 34 members, as well as our veterans, look forward each year to the parade and recognition of their service., organizers said.
