WE NEED YOUR HELP IN FINDING AND INVITING VETERANS! There will be a reverse Veterans Day Parade the morning of November 11th.  The five elementary schools in Payson want to honor our veterans, but unfortunately in our current situation we cannot invite people to our schools.  We are going to have our military veterans gather in their own vehicles to be escorted by our city police, fire and ambulance past all of our elementary schools in Payson. 

When: November 11, 2020

Where: Veterans are to come in their own vehicles to the parking lot of the LDS Church on the corner of 300 S. and Main Street. (Family members of the veterans are welcome to drive with, or drive for the veterans.)

Time: Veterans need to be at the parking lot no later than 9:45 a.m. The procession will begin at 10:00 a.m.

Route: The parade will go past Park View, then Spring Lake, Wilson, Taylor and end at Barnett.

Why: Students will line the streets surrounding their individual school.  They will cheer on our veterans as the parade passes. We want to recognize our veterans and help instill an appreciation for veterans in our students.

How can you help:  Please help us spread the word to our veterans – invite grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents, other family members and friends who have served or who are currently serving in our military.

This event is for our students only.  We are sorry to say that we are not able to invite others to attend at our schools as spectators this year.

Thank you for helping us make this a wonderful event.
