November 11th:
Veterans Day Parade
Veterans Day Building

70 1/2 Years Ago -- March 7, 1946 " The Collinsville News" -- Commander Kay Bayouth reports that erection of the Veterans Building in Collinsville will be started just as soon as material is obtainable, and this is expected to be possible soon. The Veterans propose to build the building large enough to play basketball in. They have purchased enough ground to make it possible to build a softball field for summer use. This they expect to light so that it may be used for night games.

The City of Collinsville would like to invite everyone to take part in the our official Veterans Day Activities. The Veterans Day parade should be the biggest most important parade we have here in Collinsville and we hope that everyone will participate. Attached you will find the parade information and the entry form. There is no cost to be a part of the parade.

After the parade the City will host a luncheon for all Veterans at the Veterans Memorial Building at 903 W. Main. We will then have the Re-dedication of the building the unveiling of the new bronze statues at 2:00 with a public reception / Open House immediately following. We hope you will all join us as we honor the men and women who have served this great nation. Thank you all so much if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. -- Sherry Campbell 9/28/2016
