On the weekend of November 10th through the 12th, our members honored our veterans by participating in a Veteran’s Day parade on all three days. Unfortunately, mother nature decided to send us a cold front to make the weekend more interesting. Many of our members participating were Viet Nam era veterans. Arnold Veteran’s Day Parade. On a very cold, but sunny, Friday, we started our day by meeting at the Good Sheppard Lutheran Church in Arnold and traveled the “long” two blocks to the Fox School complex where we were greeted by the students lined up in front of the school. Included in our group was a Dave Sinclair truck driven by Ron Schodroski. After the parade, we were treated to lunch and a program put on entirely by the students. The program brought a tear to most and honored the attending veterans in such a great way. Nine of our member’s cars plus a prospective member participated. St. Louis downtown Veteran’s Day Parade. With the cold front still in place, we met that Saturday in downtown St. Louis for their Veteran’s Day parade. After meeting at the McDonald’s on Jefferson, we headed to the set up location and had the usual 2 hour wait for the parade to start. We even had a u-turn or two on the way. Our caravan of 15 cars and trucks, lead by Kevin Hall of Bommarito followed by the American Spirit Mustang and again a Dave Sinclair truck piloted by Ron Schodroski along with the rest of our crew made a great showing. Special thanks to Debbie McBee and Jennifer Zaiser for carrying our banner. Of course, dinner at the downtown Syberg's finished the day. Florissant Veteran’s Day Parade. Raindrops started our Sunday followed by wind and cold which kept our member attendance down. Never-the-less, we had 9 cars and trucks in the parade, lead by “Lieutenant” Dan Kelly in a Bommarito F-350. For such a cold day, the spectator turnout was great. Of course, the day wouldn’t be complete without another late lunch, this time at Mattingly's. We thank Dan Kelly and Syl Biermann for setting up our parades and Sinclair Ford and Bommarito Ford for supplying vehicles for this parade and to all of our members who participated.
