Women’s League supports Halls veterans in parade

The Halls Crossroads Women’s League came through with flying colors for Halls veterans last week, sponsoring three truckloads of veterans in the downtown Knoxville Veterans Day Parade. The Women’s League gave each veteran a red Halls Veteran hat and made sure they had transportation to and from the parade, plus floats to ride on in the parade.


After the parade, the Women’s League treated participating veterans to a barbecue lunch at Salem Baptist Church. Each veteran’s name was announced, along with where, when and in which branch of the service he or she served.

“It was such a moving experience for the veterans,” said Women’s League member Faye Heydasch. “Some said they had never been thanked for their service, especially the Vietnam vets.”

This cake was served at the Halls Crossroads Women’s League luncheon for veterans following the parade.
