Out & About: Veteran’s Day


By Noel Daniel

It’s an important day in many hearts across the world—and it has its own parade in Modesto. On Nov. 11 at 9:30 a.m., the parade began at 10th and O St. and marched down Needham to Graceada Park. There was a program in Graceada after the parade, with old and new veterans alike, families and dogs, and countless faces—all collected to stand in solidarity on this solemn day.

Also for Veteran’s Day, Prime Shine offered free car washes to veterans from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Modesto Junior College Veterans Services hosted the 2016 Veterans Day Ceremony at noon on Nov. 16.
