Lineup for the parade will start at 9 a.m. in front of the elementary school and the parade will kick off at 10 a.m. ’This will be the first year we promote and remember veterans with a Memorial Day parade. Right now we are looking for entrants and we are welcoming everybody to join us in honoring veterans,’ said Post 197 Adjutant Steven Yerkes. ‘After the parade we will have a short Memorial Day program at the Veterans Memorial on the courthouse square that will include the reading of the names of veterans who have passed away this year and the laying of a new wreath at the memorial.’ Two Purple Heart recipients will be honored during the laying of the wreath – which was donated by Goggans Florist in Barnesville. The event may also include The Moving Wall, a traveling half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. For more, call 770-584-3909.
