2013 Veterans Day Parade

When: Sat., Nov. 9, 10 a.m. 2013

My dad was a cook on a Navy destroyer during World War II and told us how tough it was to bake a sheet cake when the ship listed to port or starboard. The cake would set thick on one side, thin on the other, then the whole thing was evened up with icing. Guys in the chow line were then asked their preference, cake or icing. To stand in honor of my dad's service and that of all the other men and women who have served in our armed forces, head downtown at 10 a.m. today for the 2013 Veterans Day Parade. For more information, including a map of the parade route, go to csvetsparade.org (282-3862, parade4va@gmail.com). — Mary Jo Meade
