Crowds of Fairhope citizens lined the streets waving flags and cheering for their returning heroes. I can't recall another time of so much happiness and emotion as the day the busses came rolling into town. The Mapps gave an immediate answer to a problem, but they also gave a great example of humble service that will last for years to come.
The Fairhope Veteran's Day Parade will be held Saturday at 10am, beginning and ending at the Civic Center.
Wherever you are, I'm sure your community will have its own way of honoring our Veterans. Make sure you support them with a big "Thank You" from all of us!
