Parachutists at Veteran’s Park

The skies in North St Paul will be noticeably different this Veterans Day. Parachutists with the colors of Old Glory will descend above the North High soccer field near the new Veteran’s Park located at the corner of 12th Ave. and Margaret St.  Angela Strong, North St. Paul business owner (Journey of Misfits Dog Training), is planning the event with the world-renowned Patriot Parachute Team to honor Veterans on Nov. 11. The event gets underway at 11 a.m.  The parachute jump is being coordinated with the North St. Paul VFW Post 39 honor guards who will be doing a volley fire at the park following the parachute drop. Post 39 intends to perform this ritual every Veteran’s Day. Margaret St. at Centennial Drive and 12th Ave./ Hwy. 36 Slip ramp may be closed to accommodate large crowds, if necessary.  The major sponsors of the event include WebWolf Design, MPL Specialty and Candy Petersen. Other sponsors include Berwald Roofing, Valley Lettering, Bakkenwood Hair Studio, Specialty Floral, Barb Kruize, Susie Danielson, Anchor Bank and Sandberg Funeral & Cremation.
