2011 St. George Veterans Day Parade

The Veteran's Day Parade and Program following in the historic Tabernacle Building had record attendance and was a great success. The parade, which is sponsored, organized and executed each year by members of American Legion - Lester Keate - Post 90 is a much anticipated event for all Veterans in our community, their families and supporters. Each year, the Veterans share this day with others who sacrifice for each of us, including: Law enforcement, Firefighters, EMS Personnel and Public Safety Workers. A special thank you is extended to Ski Ingram, Chairman of the Veteran's Day Parade and Program, who also serves as Adjutant of American Legion - Lester Keate - Post 90.


An event sponsored by Spilsbury Mortuary to honor our local veterans.

Tears of Ink
Bob Prinselaar

My tears of ink flow down my pen
A torrent of what’s inside of me
My feelings in a tale
The words all come from deep within
Old memories just come tumbling out
As I pull aside the veil
Some memories darker than the ink
And I fight to keep them down
My hand grips hard the pen
Why am I cursed with all my thoughts
Of things that happened long ago
And of men I knew back then
So now I write to ease the pain
And I cry inside to form the ink
And let it flow to write
But ink will never be the same
And I will never find my peace
Till real tears blur my sight
