Veterans Honored With Sherman Parade

11-11-06 Sherman celebrated Veterans Day with a parade for the first time in seven years on Saturday. The Texoma Veterans Council and the Red River Valley Chapter of the MVPA hosted the downtown event.

Festivities began at Fairview Park and ended with a lighting ceremony outside the Grayson County Courthouse.

Veterans from the area joined the Iron Variety and talked with those who took part in the parade.

A new TAPS truck displaying art work thanking the military was also debuted.

Organizers of the event say they will look for a bigger and better version next year.
