The parade begins at 10:30 AM from Waverly Civic Center, and participants should report there by 10 AM, ahead of the scheduled start.
Lunch will be served afterwards by the AMVETS Auxiliary at the Legion Hall north of the cemetery for those attending the service.

4:00 PM: Take down Flanders Field and Avenue of Flags at Harlington Cemetery. Help will also be needed to take down and store the flag poles.

Thanks in advance to those planning to come by and help out.
Have a safe weekend!


In Closing...

The WAVP Veterans Center honors the Veterans of yesterday, today and tomorrow. It recognizes and celebrates the sacrifice of those who served in past conflicts, those who serve today, and those whose service awaits them. These men and women and their families are ever mindful of the reality that freedom is not free. It is in this spirit that we build this very special home "Where Patriots Gather"
