Veterans Day on the River

First and foremost, thank you to all the veterans who have served to establish and protect our freedoms. This is such an important day for reflection.

We heard (albeit rather late) about the Veterans Day Parade that was to be held in New Richmond so we went down. We got there early and were disappointed at the early turnout and ashamed that enough folks would not weather the iffy weather to show thanks at the parade. However, as we have come to expect from this quaint river Village, the people rallied and at "parade time" and the streets were filled. What a great event!! We really hope that the Village hosts the parade next year too.......
