AMERICAN LEGION VETERANS DAY CELEBRATION
OCTOBER 26, 2016
The Mamou American Legion Post 123 will once again sponsor its annual Veterans Day celebration on Friday November 11. New post commander Charles Perdices is trying to recruit new members to the post that has been in existence since 1926. A new post sign will be unveiled at the event.
The veteran’s day observance will begin at 4:30pm, the lineup for the parade at Mamou High School. The parade will begin at 5;00pm rolling down Sixth Street to the Legion Post home. Military veterans and groups wishing to enter the parade are asked to please contact Perdices at 601-212-5600. He is also attempting to have veteran and law enforcement motorcycle clubs to participate in the parade. Following the parade, there will be a memorial program and public speaking at the post home at about 5:30 or 6;00pm. KVPI FM 92.5 is planning to broadcast the veterans day observance again this year.
Something new this year is a “classic car show” that will take place Saturday Nov. 12 from 9-5 at the Legion Post Home on Main street. Those classic car owners that would like to show their vehicles are urged to contact Perdices.
