4 Things You Will Love In November!

love-01

1. Veterans’ Day Parade (November 11)- There is no better place in all of Missouri to attend a Veterans’ Day Parade than Pulaski County, home of Fort Leonard Wood. Hosted by the Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber of Commerce, opening ceremonies begin at 11:00 a.m. and the parade steps off at 11:30 a.m. The parade route begins at Waynesville Middle School and ends at Waynesville City Park.

2. The Baker Band & Friends Variety Show (November 19)- You will love this event if you are a fan of the classic television variety shows like Hee Haw, or looking for good, clean family entertainment! The Barn, near Dixon, is a non smoking, no alcohol venue- and kids 12 and under are free!

3. Gone To Pieces Quilt Guild Quilt Show (November 19)- Join the ladies of the Gone To Pieces Quilt Guild at the St. Robert Community Center as they “Honor The Active” and display their award winning quilts. Quilting is a strong part of our Ozarks heritage. GTPQG has mastered the handcrafted folk art traditions and storytelling.

Saint Robert is the youngest city in Pulaski County. The city sprouted up along the “spur” to Fort Leonard Wood in the early 1940’s and has always been proud to be home to our military heroes. In 2013, Saint Robert was the first city on the Interstate 44 corridor in Missouri to be named a Purple Heart City. This mission highlights several of Saint Robert’s salutes to the United States Armed Forces. You can complete the waypoints in any order.

Military Heroes War Memorial- Near the intersection of Missouri Avenue and Old Route 66, this memorial was dedicated May, 2013. The City of Saint Robert seal is flanked by the seals of the United States Army, United States Marine Corps, United States Navy, United States Air Force, United States Coast Guard and the US Army Maneuver Support Center of Excellence insignia.
