Veteran’s Parade is This Saturday at 10 a.m. in Quincy

It is hard to believe but this Saturday the 6th Annual Veteran's Parade will be held in Quincy with nearly 80 entries ready to go down Maine Street beginning at 10am. I remember meeting with the parade chairmen Jim Ponsot and Dick McKinney five years ago to discuss putting on the first parade.  We had no idea how many entries we would have but to see it nearing 80 this year is fabulous.

This is How The St. Patrick’s Parade Started

It was a morning in 1986 when I was working at 99Q Radio with Dennis Oliver.
