Annual K-Day Parade set

Monday, September 19, 2011

In its 75th year of existence in Clay County, the annual Kiwanis K-Day Parade and Sausage Festival will take place Saturday.

This year's theme is "Honoring First Responders."

The lineup is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m., at Depot Street and National Avenue, with the parade beginning at 2.

According to V.F.W. Post 1127 officials, the day will kick off with a breakfast at the establishment, 303 S. Depot St., Brazil, starting at 7 a.m., and lasting until noon.

A Riley Children's Hospital Ambulance will be on display at the breakfast. In addition, local Cub Scout Pack 45 will be selling popcorn outside of the V.F.W., 303 S. Depot St., Brazil.

In honor of Clay County first responders, the Blood Mobile will be at the post from 9:30-11:30 a.m., to receive blood donations.

County first responders will serve as Parade Marshals.

The K-Day Queen and Princess coronation will take place at 6 p.m., Thursday, at the First Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall.

A joint effort between the V.F.W. and American Legion Post 2 will also provide a dedication Saturday.

Both organizations will dedicate the monument of the fallen soldier, tentatively scheduled for 11 a.m. According to V.F.W. Post 1127 Commander Bob Bigley, the monument is for all veterans.

Bigley added V.F.W. Post Col. Tony Smiley will conduct the dedication, with Walt Termeer and V.F.W. Chaplain, Oliver Woods IV, performing the Benediction.

What is a Sausage Festival? What is included in the breakfast and what is the cost?

Shame on you Brazil Times for not being there to cover the dedication of this amazing monument! If it wasn't for the less than 1% of Americans enlisting in the military and fighting for our FREEDOM you wouldn't have the right to do the things that many people ungreatfully do!
