Get Involved

SENC Veterans Day Parade is a federal 501(c)(3) charity and 100% volunteer operated. Funds raised go to parade expenses and charities that directly assist our veterans.

Of course there would be no parade without marching bands, military units, veterans organizations and other participants who join together to honor our veterans and military.

Parade, Golf Outing and Boat Parade sponsors provide the bulk of the money used to put on the parade. Learn how you can be a 2024 sponsor.

The parade runs on volunteers, from the organizing committee to parade-day volunteers who work in staging, control traffic, distribute programs and do much more.
