Veteran’s to Parade Past Fort Scott Schools on Nov. 11

The American Legion Post 25 has planned a Veteran’s Day Parade, following the decision of the Fort Scott Tourism Board to cancel the one they have sponsored for a few years.

“I am proud and excited to announce that we have organized our own parade for Veteran’s Day,”  Jessica Allison, Commander of

American Legion Post #25, Fort Scott,  said. “I am encouraging all of you to participate.”
All veterans who wish to participate will be meeting at Memorial Hall, Third Street at National Avenue, at 9:45  a.m. on Thursday, November 11.
“The parade will be led by the American Legion Riders on their motorcycles, and the rest of you will follow in vehicles. We will not have a float. We will be driving by all of the schools in town.”
“Tom “Short Bus” Metcalf, Jr. has contacted the (USD234) School Superintendent and they will have the students outside to watch,” she said.
“We will end the route at National Cemetery in time for the Veteran’s Day Ceremony at 11 a.m.,” Allison said. “Please pass this on to any and all the local veterans that you know.”
Contact Allison at 620-224-4733 or Tom Metcalf, Jr at 620-224-7951.

  1. The Drive by Parade was a success. We had several motorcycles from the ALR in the lead and several four wheel vehicles following with flags. The turnout and reception from the Schools was fantastic. The kids were awesome with colored posters and flags of their own to show us. We arrived at the cemetery in good time and enjoyed the service there as well. It was a good time all around.
