We will once again have our afternoon parade at the Illinois Veterans Home starting at 1:00 PM for those resident veterans who are unable to attend the Maine Street Parade. We would like to invite all of you to join us there as well. Enclosed is a map of the Parade Route at the Veterans Home, which is subject to change due to construction.
