Photo Gallery: Annual Veterans Day Parade pays tribute to those who served

NEW CASTLE — Local residents who have served their country received a civilian salute Saturday.

Hundreds turned out downtown to watch the Lawrence County Veterans Council’s annual Veterans Day Parade.

A fireworks burst from Zambelli Internationale signaled the start of the parade, which stepped off from the Columbus Innerbelt, proceeded up Croton Avenue and headed west on East Washington Street. After passing the reviewing stand on Kennedy Square, the parade disbanded back on the Innerbelt.

Among the military and veterans groups represented in the parade were the 1st Battalion 107th Field Artillery headquarters, Veterans of Foreign Wars Neshannock Post 315, New Castle Area Honor Guard, New Castle Marine Corps League, AMVETS Post 281, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 267, American Legion Perry S. Gaston Post 343, Mariners of Pennsylvani and the United States Military Veterans Motorcycle Club.

Robert Walker was the parade marshal, and Thomas E. Lane was the grand marshal.

Beginning tonight, the Pittsburgh Penguins will take on the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round of the NHL playoffs. So, who ya got? And in how many games?

Penguins, in five games or fewer. Too much firepower for the Blue Jackets, especially if Evgeni Malkin is ready to go.
Penguins, in six or seven games. It’s a pretty even matchup on defense, but Pittsburgh will grind it out.
Blue Jackets, in five games or fewer. Sergei Bobrovsky in goal for the Blue Jackets spells trouble for the Pens.
Blue Jackets, in six or seven games. Bobrovsky gives Columbus the edge, but it won’t be easy.
