The second annual Veteran’s Day Parade was held Sunday, November 10, 2013.
The parade began at Tazewell High School, and ended with a ceremony at the Veteran’s Memorial on Main Street in Tazewell. Over 160 Veterans were in attendance. A meal was served for the Veterans at the Main Street Methodist Church fellowship hall, on the corner of Main Street.
All area Veteran’s were invited to participate in the parade and meal. Transportation was provided to any Veteran which is not able to walk the parade route. This year the Veterans Parade Committee teamed up with the USMC Toys for Tots Campaign and asked all parade onlookers to bring a a toy and help provide a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas. Toy collection spots were strategically placed throughout the parade route, to collect donations.
We extend a sincere thanks to all those who participated in the parade and toy drive!

Scenes from the day -
On Saturday, July 6, 2013, the Beach Nite Band performed as part of the Main Street Concert Series. Their Carolina beach music tradition includes soul, R&B, disco, blues, boogie and memorable oldies songs. Along with their versions of Carolina beach music favorites, they mix in selected pop, party and even a few country music titles. For entertaining music spiced up with humor and variety, The Beach Nite Band delivers. All three Beach Nite Band performers, as well as their sound engineer, are privileged to have been long time members of The Collegians. While neither they nor anyone else could replace The Collegians, they hope to honor and extend the musical and entertainment traditions forged by this outstanding band.
