Ephrata holds 25th annual Veterans Day parade

EPHRATA — It may have been a short parade that wound through the streets of downtown Ephrata, but for those who both marched and watched in the town’s Veterans Day parade, it was a meaningful one. “They love seeing all the people,” said Tess Guillemette as she waited with her two granddaughters on the side of C Street Northwest near the Grant County Courthouse. “It’s important to honor veterans because Grandpa is a veteran. And I think it’s something that every child should learn to know.” The parade brought together members of American Legion Post 28 and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 24 along with cadets from the Civil Air Patrol’s Columbia Basin Composite Squadron and members of the Royal Rangers USA youth group to march down several blocks of C and Basin streets.
