A Veteran’s Day parade was held Saturday, Nov. 11, in Wheatland. The events surrounding the parade began exactly at the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th month, signifying the signing of the Armistice ending World War I — the “War to End All Wars.”
The parade size and spectator turnout was deemed a success by veterans, spectators and members of the Constitution Party of Platte County. There were numerous World War II veterans in the parade.
There hadn’t been a Veteran’s Day parade for many years; the county party hopes this year’s event will inaugurate a renewed effort to honor the “Greatest
Generation,” as Chloe Butler, chapter member, so poignantly stated.
The members would like to thank Chloe for all her hard work, as well as so many others who donated their time, vintage vehicles, horses, trailers, fire trucks and feet! All communities in Platte County participated in some way or another.
Even though we sponsored this event, it was designed to be non-political in nature, and to this degree we were equally successful. The Constitution Party of Wyoming-Platte County members are already making initial plans for next year's events.

A silent auction — one of the events annual
highlights, was interesting as always, and it was fun to compete for the assorted items donated for the cause.
Lenore Perry provided the wonderful piano music through the evening.
There were three gun auction winners that evening, including the winner of the hat auction, which was limited to those in attendance
The very tasty dinner was provided by Café Rio, and the staff at the Holiday Inn were very helpful, taking care of our needs.
The evening wrapped up at 8:30 p.m. We are thankful for the many who attended and helped make the 2017 Constitution Day Dinner a success.
platte county constitution Party hosts float
The Platte County Constitution Party treated local residents with a float at the recent Platte County Fair parade On Saturday, Aug. 5. "Leave Freedom's Stamp on the Future" was the message of this year's float. And "Liberty, Integrity and Prosperity," the motto of the National Constitution Party, was emphasized as well.
Bill Hutchinson volunteered to pull the float with his historic custom truck, hopefully bringing even more positive attention to our important message. He is pictured in his uniform, standing next to the float in the image at right.
