Charles City community set to welcome home nine local soldiers on Saturday

The Charles City community is excited to welcome home several local soldiers on Saturday in a “Drive By Parade”.

The nine soldiers are:  Marco Concepcion, Dave Dejongoy, Austin Ferch, Jaden Foster, Mitchel Fox, Nick Jacobs, Dallas Nehls, Conor Sherman, & Elizabeth White.

Charles City Mayor Dean Andrews promoted the event on Friday morning.

The event will take place on Saturday April 17th from 10am until 11am at the warehouse across from Dollar General in Charles City. The soldiers will be “stationed” on a flatbed trailer at 600 N. Main. All citizens are invited to “drive by”, honk your horns, and deliver an America’s hometown salute. You are invited to decorate your vehicles with patriotic colors if you would like, but the big thing is to salute these Charles City graduates and welcome them back home.

He says he's good at karaoke but we think otherwise. ;) In his free time, he enjoys beginning new projects at home and hardly ever finishing them. Chris lives in Charles City with his wife Vicki, daughter Brynlee and son Jaxon.
