The American Legions hopes you can join in the celebration and perhaps put a car or a float in the parade with your business or organization's logo on the side.

Lunch will be served to the participating children immediately following the Parade at the Elks building.

The celebration will continue with live music and food starting at noon at the American Legion in St. James City. Finally, at dusk come and join them for the best (weather permitting) Fireworks display on Pine Island.

You can mail or drop off any tax deductible amount to the American Legion. We will make sure you or your organization gets credit for the donation. Please watch for news updates on activities as the weeks go on.
