The City of Monongahela held their annual Veterans Day Parade and ceremony on November 11, 2023 to pay tribute to those who serve our country in the military.  

The memorial ceremony was held at 11:00AM at 7th and Main St., Chess Park in Monongahela. Rev. Dr. Zayzay Kpadeh, of First United Methodist Church of Monongahela, performed the Invocation.  

“Remember all the veterans who are here in a special way, especially those who could not be seen,” said Kpadeh.  “On this historic day, we lift up all the special veterans who have gathered; may God continue to bless veterans today and of the future.”  

During the Benediction with Pastor Josh Greene of Journey by Grace Church,  Pastor Josh said that it’s our job to do more than just get to know veterans but he encouraged us to remember the benefits we have because of their service, the benefits to live, love and create a safe place.  

Guest Speaker at the Ceremony was Joella Pendleton, a freshman at Charleroi High School, who is very involved in her school and community.  A positive example of future leadership, Pendleton is surrounded by a family full of those in the military, including her brother Bruce who is in the Air Force in Arizona.  Joella Pendleton was also this year’s Grand Marshall for the Veterans Parade.

The Parade began at 1:00 PM, hosted this year by the Chairman of Monongahela Veteran’s Council, David Thompson, Jr.  “I enjoy helping with events that commemorate veterans from the area,” said Thompson.”  He added, “This turned out to be a great day.  Thank you to everyone.”
