Instead of the annual Veteran’s Day assembly at Uniontown High School, a parade has been planned in the town on Wednesday, November 11 at 2:30 p.m.
The idea came from a conversation between UHS Principal Mike. Reith and UHS History Teacher Hannah Hays.
“Traditionally we host an assembly, but knew that wasn’t an option this year due to COVID,” said Hays.Teacher. “A parade allows us to still recognize our local vets but in an outdoor venue with plenty of space to spread out.”
“We don’t have a specific theme, just simply gratitude for their service,” Hays said.
In the parade will be decorated trailers and trucks, the UHS band, local law enforcement and horses as well, she said.
It will take place Wednesday, November 11th at 2:30 in the afternoon.
A photo of the parade route is in the flyer that Hays sent and accompanies this feature.
The route will be around the perimeter of the grade school which sits south of the high school on the towns east side.
“We have invited anybody and everybody to participate in the parade,” Hays said. “Just as long as they demonstrate an appreciation for our veteran community.”
Patriotically decorated vehicles, flat bed trailers, bikes or horses are invited. Meet at the football stadium at 2 p.m.
Extra parking is located south of the grade school on First Street and community members may line the walking trail, with social distancing in famiy groups.
“We have also invited both UHS and West Bourbon Elementary School students and staff, as well as community members to attend and watch the parade,” she said.
