-A A +A
By Carolyn Ten Broeck

Hundreds turned out Monday to celebrate Veterans Day as the city of Williston hosted this year’s annual Levy County tribute to members of our nation’s Armed Forces.

A parade that lasted 45 minutes featured floats, a band, marching units and of course, veterans of all ages.

The parade wound down Noble Avenue and went north on Main Street to the pavilion in Heritage Park. There more than 600 guests were treated to a hot dog lunch before an hour-long ceremony emceed by Williston Mayor Gerald Hethcoat.

The Williston Junior ROTC posted the colors and raised the flag to half mast as the Williston High School Band played the national anthem.

Keynote speaker Charlie Stone, newly elected to the Florida House of Representatives, spoke about the sacrifices that are made to ensure that freedom prevails.

“We, the living, are the beneficiaries of those sacrifices,” he said. “May we always be humbly grateful.”

Stone also charged those in attendance to honor our veterans by volunteering in the community and making a difference by serving others.

“Every day is Veterans Day,” Stone said.
