Breakfast -The Cowpokes Round-Up Club will be serving breakfast provided by the Collinsville Masonic Lodge #165 to Veterans and their families free of charge immediately following the Appreciation Ceremony at the Veterans Building.
Parade- The traditional Collinsville Veterans Day Parade will take place at 11:00 a.m. Bring the family to Main Street to help honor our Veterans. Everyone is encouraged to participate and enter the parade to honor the men and women, past and present, who have served in the military to protect the freedoms we now enjoy. This year we've adopted the 2020 theme from Wreaths Across America to be our parade theme: Be an American Worth Fighting For! We encourage all those in attendance and participating to follow social distancing protocol and masks are encouraged when in closer contact.
