The law firm of HKQ Law recently donated $1,000 to the Annual Veterans Day Parade Committee to help defray the costs of the annual event scheduled for Nov. 11 in downtown Wilkes-Barre.
“The annual Veterans Day Parade honors the heroic sacrifices of generations of military service men and women who protect our freedoms and keep our nation secure,” said Attorney Richard M. Goldberg, a retired Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve. “When we heard that the Parade Committee needed help, all of us at HKQ Law felt compelled to step up.”
Because of cuts in public funding for the event, the Parade Committee was faced with the possibility of being unable to stage a parade in 2012, according to committee Treasurer Sam Greenberg. The parade, which began as a welcome home parade for World War II veterans, has been held every year since 1946.
“We are grateful for all of the support we receive from the 109th Field Artillery in Kingston and many other organizations and individuals, but the support from HKQ Law was critical in making the 2012 Veterans Day Parade a reality,” said Greenberg.
The annual parade will feature units from the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard, as well as veterans’ organizations, community associations and high school marching bands. It will start at Market Street and Rutter Avenue in Kingston and proceed down Market Street into Wilkes-Barre where it will turn right onto River Street, left onto Northampton Street, left onto South Main Street and end at Public Square.
