40th Annual Veterans Day Parade Honors Military Service

PORTLAND, OR - October 06, 2014

The annual Ross Hollywood Chapel Veterans Day parade will roll again through Portland this Veterans Day, Tuesday, November 11. The parade begins at 9:45 a.m. at NE 40th and Tillamook Street and ends at the Ross Hollywood flag pole in front of Ross Hollywood Chapel on NE 48th Avenue and Sandy Boulevard.

 

Sponsored annually by Ross Hollywood Chapel since the very first parade 40 years ago, the Veterans Day parade honors those men and women in uniform who have so selflessly served our country.

 

"It is truly an honor for us to sponsor the annual Veterans Day parade," said Angela McKenzie-Tucker, manager of Ross Hollywood Chapel. "Our service men and women put themselves in harm's way to ensure the freedom of this nation, and sponsoring this parade to bring them the recognition they deserve is the least we can do to honor their service."

 

The public is encouraged to attend the parade and support local veterans. For more information, call Ross Hollywood Chapel at 503-281-1800 or visit the Veterans Day Parade website at www.VeteransDayPDX.org.
