                 VETERAN'S DAY PARADE AND CELEBRATION
Just want to let you know that I have been asked to chair the Monessen Veterans Council , 
the big task at hand is preparing for the Mon Valley Veterans Day Parade and Celebration 
that we are hosting. The daylong event is November 8, 2014 and will be held in the city of 
Monessen, Pa., approximately 25 miles due south of Pittsburgh, Pa. and 1 mile off interstate 70. 
this will be the 70th Annual Mon Valley veterans Day Parade and Celebration. We have invited 
nearly 60 veterans units, 12 high school bands from the area, some ROTC and Jr ROTC units 
as well as other Military and civilian groups and organizations and antique Military vehicle clubs to attend. 
 
This event is rotated yearly through five communities of Southwestern Pennsylvania, they are, 
Washington, Pa., Monessen, Pa., Charleroi, Pa, Donora, Pa. and Monongahela, Pa. This year 
my community of Monessen has the privilege of hosting this great observance and recognition 
of all veterans this year.
 
This celebration is a big thing for our area and I would like to invite any members who would like
to make the trip to come and join us and be in the parade if you like. If some of you have restored 
or any military vehicles or would like to get together and put together a float or some type of display 
vehicle to be in the parade, you would be most welcome. If you are interested in participating, 
please contact me at the following.
