Veteran's Day Parade to take place in Lake Worth, November 8th

The Lake Worth Veterans Day Parade on Saturday, November 8th begins at 11 AM. The NAPC will again this year feature two floats, one for Neighbors to ride and walk with and one float for the NAPC tribute to the Lake Worth High School students and faculty Veterans who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our Country since the High School was founded. The LWHS Memorial float features a life size replica of the granite monument permanently installed on the LWHS campus.

The NAPC Neighbors float will safely carry about 30 people. Children are very welcome to ride the float as long as they are accompanied by a parent or guardian. Veterans are always welcome to ride as well as our Neighbors who may find it difficult to walk in the parade. Line up for the parade begins at 10 AM along Federal Highway. The NAPC float is usually parked close to 4th or 5th Ave North on Federal, near Sacred Heart School.

The Parade ends at the Cultural Plaza where the Ceremony begins around 12:30 PM with the PBSO Honor Guard, the Scottish Rites Bagpipe and Drum Corp, the high school marching band, the Pledge of Allegiance and patriotic songs. Elected officials and honored guests will be on stage to Salute the Service and Sacrifice of our Veterans. A special recitation of Hal Borland's "The Creed" will be delivered along with neighbors holding plackards displaying "I Am An Am-er-ic-an". Tented seated in the Plaza is provided for our Veterans.

The parade route and the Cultural Plaza will be festooned with American flags Thanks to generosity of Neighbors who contributed to the Lake Worth Flag Project and the City of Lake Worth.

Veterans Day in Lake Worth is special. We've taken Veterans Day as our own and forget past grievences and remember why we have the freedoms we cherish. One of the lesser known venues at the Lake Worth Veterans Day Parade is the reading of “That Ragged Old Flag” penned by Johnny Cash. Former Commissioner Cara Jennings and her lovely partner Panagioti Tsolkas do the reading and it will bring tears to your eyes. Here is the end of the poem:
"So we raise her up every morning,
Take her down every night.
We don't let her touch the ground
And we fold her up right.
On second thought I DO like to brag,
'Cause I'm mighty proud of that Ragged Old Flag."

See everyone at the Parade!!!!

Very clever bulldog. Some people might actually believe it. Cara has no love for this country.

From the banning of feeding the homeless comes the rise of 'Homeless Incarceration'

The second Genocide and Holocaust has begun...

The New World Order has contrived it, the politicians have ordained it, and the hungry homeless will join the 'Ebola disappeared'...
