A Veterans Day parade is being organized with participants driving by the three West Carroll School District buildings in Savanna and Mount Carroll.

The parade is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 10, said organizer Kris Yingling, a West Carroll Primary School fourth grade teacher.

“Since we are unable to have a Veterans Day assembly again this year due to Covid, we decided to hold a parade of veterans,” said Yingling.

All area veterans are asked to meet by 9:15 a.m. at the Poopy’s parking lot in Savanna where the drive-by parade begins at 9:30 a.m.

A police escort will lead the parade participants past each of the school district’s three buildings — West Carroll Primary School and West Carroll High School in Savanna and West Carroll Middle School in Mount Carroll.

Students at each building will line the sidewalk to welcome the veterans and show their thanks for the veterans’ service. All area veterans are invited to participate.

Rain date for the parade is Friday, Nov. 12.
