Annual Veteran’s Day Parade planned in Claremore


The 8th Annual Veteran’s Day Parade has been scheduled for Nov. 11 in downtown Claremore. 
“We are planning for another excellent parade to honor those to gave their service to our nation,” said Frank Friedemann, parade committee co-coordinator. “From the early entries that have already booked, the 2013 parade will be the largest ever.”  
The parade, sponsored by Musgrove-Merriott-Smith-Payne Funeral Service & Crematory, will start at 11:11 a.m. at the Claremore Expo Center, and will head due west down Will Rogers Boulevard, dispersing at First Baptist Church.
As in previous years, there will be a flag retirement ceremony held in conjunction with the parade.
Old, faded and torn United States flags may be dropped off at the J.M. Davis Arms & Historical Museum (at 5th Street and J.M. Davis Boulevard) or at MMS-Payne Funeral Service (at 102 W. 5th Street) for use in the flag retirement ceremony.
The flag retirement service will follow the parade at 12:15 p.m. at the gun museum, with Inola and Claremore High School Junior ROTC cadets to perform the ceremony.
Registration for parade participation is now open to schools, churches, or other organizations, who may register free of charge by contacting committee member Bill Richey at (918) 829-9610.
For more information, call (918) 341-2487.
