The deadline is July 11 for local veterans of World War II, Korea and Vietnam to request special bleacher seating for the Sept. 10 Poway Patriotic Parade.

The parade’s theme is “Honoring Those Who Serve – Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow”, and shaded 200-seat bleacher section is set aside for veterans of the three wars.  Each selected veteran can bring one guest to the “Special Seats for Special Heroes” section.  Veterans from Poway, Rancho Bernardo, 4S Ranch, Carmel Mountain Ranch, Sabre Springs and Rancho Penasquitos are encouraged to attend.

The application for seating is available at or in the lobby of the Poway City Hall at 13325 Civic Center Drive.  The completed application can be faxed to the Poway Kiwanis Club – which is handling the process – at 858-748-2034.  For additional information on the seating, call 858-735-3060.
