They are pleased to announce that they have coordinated with the Bradenton Beach Mayor John Shaughnessy who will be giving an honor and remembrance speech along with recognition of our local veterans with a commemorative Veteran’s Day plaque.

The Palma Sola VFW Post 10141Flag and Color Guard will also be in attendance in full uniform to support their fellow veterans during the Pledge of Allegiance and National Anthem, which will be played by a local musician.
The Bridge Street Merchants have been diligently working with MacDill Air Force Base to coordinate an aerial show of support with a military flyover along the Bradenton Beach coastline. At the time of this press release the event organizers have received promising word from MacDill that it will happen but confirmation may not come until the day of the event based on aircraft availability.
