TARRANT COUNTY VETERANS DAY PARADE BUZZ

Money Needed to Support Vets Day Parade
“Parades are fun...but they’re not free!” states Pixie Wetmore, fundraising coordinator for this year’s Tarrant County Veterans Day Parade. “And we still need money to proudly march down Main Street.”
“November marks the 100th year of Armistice/Veterans Day parades in Downtown Fort Worth,” Wetmore notes. “To commemorate this remarkable event, we (the Tarrant County Veterans Council) initiated a Give 100 fund raising campaign.
“We’re hoping our Give 100 drive gives people and businesses across Tarrant County the chance to support the parade and be part of this historic Centennial Celebration. That support could be through giving 100 pennies, nickels, dimes, dollars, or more.
This year also marks the 100th year of service to veterans by the American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary, and the Military Order of the World Wars.
“Have an idea?” Wetmore asks. “Want to salute a veteran? Can you contribute a service in kind? Eager to donate? We’ve made it as simple as going to the parade website (https://www.fw2019vetparade.org/), clicking the DONATE button and filling out the online form.”
