    Hi, I go to Hillgrove High School, and I am in the JROTC unit and we were looking for a parade to be able to march in. If this is okay, please contact me through my e-mail so we can talk. Thank you!

    Please advise on correct date of parade. Is it the second Saturday in November, the 9th or is it on Veterans Day, the 11th?
