Veterans Day Car Parade
The Village of Deerfield and the Deerfield American Legion are partnering to honor our senior veterans this year with a drive-by parade. If you are looking for a safe way to celebrate Veterans Day, you are invited to join us in your vehicle at Deerfield High School next Wednesday, November 11.
The parade will start at the high school at approximately 10:00 a.m. and drive by the homes of WWII, Korean War, Cuban Missile Crisis, and Vietnam War veterans, and will end at the Deerfield Veterans Memorial at 11:00 a.m., with participants remaining their vehicles.
If you know of a senior veteran who is not a member of the legion and whom you would like to see included in the tribute, please contact Mary Blankenship, Commander of Deerfield American Legion Post 738, at 847-948-7451.
