The Marine Corps League of Florence is happy to announce that the 10th Annual Patriotic Parade is scheduled for Saturday, September 10 in Florence. It honors those who lost their lives and the heroes of the tragic attack on our country on September 11, 2001.
The Marine Corps League is a fraternal organization of retired and veteran Marines. They are not supported by government or taxpayer expense which makes it necessary to appeal to local, patriotic citizens to help finance larger projects like the parade.
The largest expense is in securing the Marine Corp Band from Parris Island, SC. Because they put on a free concert on the evening of the parade, the Marine Corps League must pay for their room and board (approximately 50 members). That equals one night in a hotel and three meals for each band member.
For more information or to make a donation, please contact Parade Chairman, Bob Dugas at 843-662-2102.
