Thursday is Veterans Day and you will have an opportunity to honor our veterans. Bend will hold its parade downtown Thursday morning. Veterans advocate Dick Tobiason says a Bend veteran started the tradition.

“Mike Dolan, a World War II veteran, a few years back, we didn't have a parade, and he took a flag and an pole and  walked down Wall Street, right through all the traffic with his World War II uniform on. And that started the parade program. So we always carry a big banner with Band of Brothers honoring Mike Dolan for starting our parade.” The Bend parade will start Thursday at 11 a.m.; that signifies the signing of the treatise: the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Dick Tobiason was the guest on the KBND Morning program, “Your Town" Monday morning.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
