      Veterans Coalition needs helping hands for kids parade

      The Veterans Coalition will be leading the parade with service members in uniform. Theyâ??re hoping to have 400 people to help them carry 400 American Flags.

      The Grand Traverse Area Veterans Coalition is looking for some helping hands on Thursday for the National Cherry Festival Kids Parade.

      The Veterans Coalition will be leading the parade with service members in uniform. They??re hoping to have 400 people to help them carry 400 American flags.

      Last year the Veterans Coalition lead the parade with 100 flags. After several donations, they were able to get more flags in honor of the troops coming home.

      ??All I can say is it is just totally awesome and I hope that we have enough people to carry all 400 flags,?? said Veterans Coalition President, John Lefler.

      You must be 18 or older to help carry a flag and meet at F&M Park in Traverse City at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday.
