Chili town staff greeted veterans with donuts and held Veterans Day Parade

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Friday is Veterans Day, where we honor all of the men and women who have served our country.

The town of Chili held its third annual Veterans Day Parade. Veterans were invited to sit and gather at four locations around Chili.

Town staff came to greet them with coffee and donuts. There was also a parade of 35 to 40 vehicles that came by each location. They stopped and everyone got out to thank the veterans for their service.

“We typically do a veterans breakfast and we still do that every year but during COVID, we had to cut that back so we decided to do something like this and during the COVID craze we had all those drive by birthday parades so we kind of said let’s take that model and do it for our veterans,” said Mike Curley, Recreation Director of the Town of Chili.

Local government, fire officials, and law enforcement officials all came out for the parade.
