Friday deadline for vet tributes, parade registration for city's 150th anniversary
SHAMOKIN - The deadline for veterans tributes and parade registration for Shamokin's 150th Anniversary celebration is Friday.
Anyone interested in entering the parade - be it a float, marching unit, vehicle or individual - must submit a registration form no later than Friday to ensure they're listed in the program. Active duty service members or those killed in action will be listed at no charge. Any veteran who was honorably discharged, living or deceased, can be listed in the program for $7.
The grand parade is scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday. It is dedicated to all from the greater Shamokin area who have served in the U.S. military. The souvenir program will be sold along the parade route for $1.
Raffle tickets for a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro remain on sale throughout town.
