HALEYVILLE - The true meaning of veterans’ service and sacrifice to America will not be hidden behind regulations caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, but will be celebrated in a safe manner in downtown Haleyville Saturday, Nov. 7.
The annual parade and program honoring veterans will take place this year, with the parade lineup set for 9:30 a.m. at Haleyville Elementary School, noted Mickey Holdbrooks, adjutant of American Legion Post 33.
