I didn’t know there was a Hahira Veterans Day Parade.
Turns out that’s because there wasn’t one since the 1950s, until Friday.
WWALS was invited to participate, so we did.
Hahira Veterans Day Parade, WWALS Booth, Inside
Among the many WWALS members who are veterans,
Vanessa and Nick Kroening
rode in the parade with their children Jonah and Primrose.

between the Little and Withlacoochee Rivers, on the
Withlacoochee and Little River Water Trail.
