Last call for Labor of Love


October 02, 2013 | 10:31 AM

It's not too late to participate in this year's Labor of Love event designed to honor and show appreciation to active military, veterans and reserves. The event, now in its fourth year, will be Saturday, Oct. 12, and is hosted by Lincoln Hills Christian Church Corydon.

Millie Rogers, one of the Labor organizers, said Monday that entries can still be made in the parade, an addition to this year's Labor of Love. Floats are to have a "patriotic" theme. Grand marshals for the parade, being billed as a "Welcome Home celebration," will be World War II veterans. (Walkers are not allowed in the parade.)

The parade will begin at 4:30 p.m. at the Harrison County Fairgrounds in Corydon. Participants are to arrive at the fairgrounds an hour earlier.

Parade spectators are encouraged to wear red, white and blue and have flags as they line the parade route along Capitol Avenue. The route will turn west onto Walnut Street then disband at Water Street.

The rest of the Labor of Love activities, including a special tribute to Korea and Vietnam veterans, will take place at the church from 5 to 8 p.m.

Food sponsors to date include Beef 'O' Brady's, Ryan's Family Steak House, O'Charley's and Subway, all in Corydon.

Volunteers are welcome to help serve the meal, clean tables and refill drinks at the event.

Military personnel, both past and present, and their family members are reminded their meal reservations are due by Wednesday, Oct. 9.

To do so, or for more information, to make a donation or to offer items for the display, call Rogers at 951-2869 or 267-5318 or Kathi Watson at 736-5656.
