‘Salute to Veterans’ set with Marines

A “Salute to Veterans” ceremony honoring military veterans featuring the U.S. Marine Corps Band is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday at Veterans Memorial Park Amphitheater.

After the ceremony, which is part of Friday’s Veterans Day weekend, a support parade is planned to leave the amphitheater parking lot at the Albany Civic Center at 10:30 a.m. Vehicles with patriotic-theme decorations will cruise to American Legion Post 30 at 2916 Gillionville Road.

The events at the Post include military displays, a car show, food and refreshments and music by the band Guilty Pleasures. A silent auction will be held to benefit the Lily Pad, an organization that benefits the abused and their families.
