Veteran's Memorial Day Parade in Palatka



     When in Palatka on Veteran's Day, keep a scaffold handy for a birds-eye view of the parade coming down St. John's Ave!
 
Some interesting people said hello..  a lady member of the Marine Corp, a few Vietnam Vets, each with stories, a young  visitor from Germany wanting her picture with us.
As we were packing up to leave, a camera wielding contingent from the American Legion pulled up on their 3 person motorcycle and invited us for lunch at the American Legion Hall! We did, and it was very nice!


On the American Legion building, a very beautiful mural painted by college student Sylvia Cerri- Bartels
Patriotic Motorcade
 
And...we even made it to...
