RCMS Veterans Day Parade! Nov 11th @ 10:00

For many years, the Veterans Day programs hosted by Rockcastle County Schools has
been an annual highlight for many in our community. Due to ongoing restrictions placed on our
school and community during the COVID-19 pandemic, and out of an abundance of caution for
our veterans who are among our most vulnerable population, we want to honor our nation’s
heroes in a different way this year.

On Thursday, November 11, Rockcastle County Schools and the City of Mt. Vernon will
be hosting a Veterans Day Parade. Our veterans will be escorted through Mt. Vernon to allow
Rockcastle County Schools staff, students, and community members the opportunity to show
our love and appreciation for the sacrifice they have made so that we may enjoy our freedoms
as American citizens.

The parade route will begin at Rockcastle County Middle School. Lineup will begin at
9:00 AM. We ask all participating veterans to be at the school for lineup no later than 9:30 AM.
The parade will begin at 10:00 AM. The Mt. Vernon Police and Fire Departments will escort the
veterans from RCMS, down West Main Street, Richmond Street, School Street, and Williams
Street.

We invite employees and residents along the parade route to stand outside your place of
business or home to honor our veterans as they pass by. We want as many community
members that will participate in appreciation for our nation’s heroes.
Finally, we ask our veterans who are able to, to decorate your car with your branch and
years of service.

Following the parade, we will be having a luncheon for our veterans at RCMS. We invite
each veteran and one guest to come back to RCMS for soup and sandwiches immediately
following the parade.

We would love to honor as many veterans as possible this year. If you are a veteran,
please make plans to participate in the parade. If you are not a veteran, make plans to attend
and honor our community members that have sacrificed so much for us.
