GREENSBORO, N.C. – The 2016 Greensboro Honors: A Veterans Parade will be held at 1 p.m. on  Saturday, November 12 in Downtown Greensboro. Organized by the Welfare Reform Liaison Project (WRLP) Inc., Greensboro Honors: A Veterans Parade is planned for the 2nd Saturday of November, to make it easier for many community groups and organizations to be involved.  Dr. Irish Spencer, with WRLP, Inc., says, “The Parade Committee includes representatives from Veterans Organizations and Community Leaders and has worked hard to develop a parade that will honor all Veterans and Active Duty Military Personnel.  In Guilford County alone, there are over 30,000 Veterans each of them deserve special recognition and our thanks.”

This year’s parade, sponsored in part by the City of Greensboro, Downtown Greensboro Inc., The Cemala Foundation, WNAA and WFMY News2 along with many other organizations will include The 82nd Airborne Color Guard, The 82nd Airborne All American Band along with the Marching Band from Ben L.

Local Veterans, Military Groups and community organizations are putting together Marching Units, Decorated Floats and Color Guards.

Greensboro Honors: A Veterans Parade will kick off on Lindsay Street near the Wrangler/VF offices, will travel east on Lindsay crossing over Church Street and Murrow Boulevard, and will continue along Lindsay to Yanceyville Street where it will turn north to disband in the War Memorial Stadium parking lot.  Parade attendees are encouraged to line the parade route along Lindsay to honor and thank our Veterans.
