Danville To Honor Veterans This Weekend
Danville, VA-- Danville is honoring their veterans this weekend. Saturday at 11 a.m., the Danville Area Veterans Council will have a ceremony at the Veterans Memorial at Dan Daniel Memorial Park.
A Korean War Veteran will be the special speaker. If you can't make it to that, the annual Veterans Day parade will be this Sunday at 2:30 p.m. starting at Main Street at Rison Street.
One participant in the parade is not new to the event. He's walked in it since the 80s. He said it is something he always looks forward to.
"Danville right here, we have a lot of veterans and there's a lot of work that the veterans do that other people do not know, and this is one thing to honor them," said Daryl Mills.
Westover Baptist Church in Danville will also hold a special service for veterans at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday.
