Klickitat salutes veterans


A parade of veterans will be greeted in the town of Klickitat on Oct. 11, as the town hosts “Hunting with Heroes.” This is the third year for the event at Klicktiat, and the public is invited to join the celebration.

“Hunting with Heroes is a wonderful organization and we are proud they chose our community for the program,” said Carl Coolidge, owner of the Canyon Market where the crowd will gather following the 11 a.m. parade through town. The streets will be lined with 100 flags and an honor program will be presented, including performances by Harmony of the Gorge, a Sweet Adelines International group member.

“Hunting with Heroes brings recognition to our small community, helping us to build tourism and the hunting and fishing businesses on which our town depends,” said Coolidge. “More importantly though, it gives back to the men and women who were willing to sacrifice for the freedom we enjoy today.”
