Grant County Veterans Day Parade
On Sunday, Nov. 11, American Legion Post 28 will host its 22nd annual Veterans Day Parade. The purpose of the parade is to honor America’s veterans, past and present. The theme of the parade never changes, “Freedom is not free, it is bought and paid for by America’s veterans.”
All veterans organizations and any other organization that would like to honor veterans are invited to attend. The parade will assemble at 10:30 a.m. in front of the Grant County courthouse and will step off at 10:45. The parade will march south on C Street to Second Ave SW and turn left, travel one block to Basin Street and turn left.
The parade will stop in front of the Ephrata Recreation Center and fire a rifle salute at 11 a.m. in memory of the armistice that ended World War 1 on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. The parade will then continue north on Basin Street to First NW and turn left, travel one block and turn left again. The parade will then fire another salute at the Vietnam Memorial in front of the courthouse, after which the parade will continue back to the corner of C Street and Division to end the parade.
All participants and any other veterans in the area are invited to the Post home at 276 Eighth Ave. NW, Ephrata, after the parade for a luncheon of soup and sandwiches hosted by the American Legion Auxiliary.

The Galloping Breakfast will be held 8 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Nov. 3, at the American Legion Post, 276 Eighth Ave., Ephrata.
This is an opportunity to come down to the Post anytime between 8 a.m. and noon to get a great all-you-can-eat breakfast for just $5, or $3 for members with a 2019 membership card.
The Galloping Breakfast is a membership tradition that dates back to when people would ride their horses in, tie them up at the hitchin’ post outside and come on in for good eats and comradeship.
The Post will be open to the public on this occasion. For more information, call Mike or Jane Montaney at 754-4889
