Card of Thanks – Veterans float

Published: Thursday, November 7, 2013 at 09:40 AM.

I would like to extend a special Thank You to all the Franklin County veterans who were on our float and walked and handed out flags, candy and necklaces to the crowd

Thanks to Pam for moving us up from the rear of the parade to the middle. As for the questions from many of our local residents as to why the “local” veterans float was behind so many out-of-town floats, I don't know. Ask your seafood festival president and committee. I would have thought they would have been proud of their veterans and put us up front. Guess not.

We got a great response from the crowd with several standing ovations and cheers. Veterans, we will do it bigger and better next year.

Charles Wilson
