Honoring Their Service Parade
The Marines are once again coming to the Upstate of South Carolina in June. Special Operations Command Marines from Camp Lejeune, North Carolina are coming to Oconee and Pickens counties. Southern Wesleyan University hosts an “Honoring Their Service Parade and Welcome” in Central that includes a short program, concessions, and music. Citizens are encouraged to wear red, white, and blue to show support for the Marines. The event prior to the parade on Southern Wesleyan’s campus is from 11:30am to 1:30pm on June 11. There will be a police and motorcycle escort of 20 Marines and their spouses from Central, through Clemson and Seneca, and then to Keowee Key where they get to enjoy a week of fun and relaxation.
