Fallen Heroes honored in the Stemilt Growers Grand Parade

1494

WENATCHEE – Fallen Heroes are the emotional highlight of the Stemilt Growers Grand Parade.  Thousands of spectators along the route pay tribute to those in the armed forces from our state who gave their lives for America.

Banners bearing the faces and the names of the fallen are carried by local volunteers in what is called Washington’s Fallen Heroes. On this morning’s Wake Up Wenatchee Valley, local volunteer Matt Wisen spoke of the emotional impact on those who carry the banners.

Wisen put out the call for volunteers to carry the banners as normally there are more banners than people to carry them.

The Stemilt Growers Grand Parade begins at 11AM Saturday and will be televised live here on the NCWLife Channel.
