The City of Havre de Grace expresses its appreciation for veterans.

With less than a week before Thanksgiving, we would like to take this moment to express our great appreciation for our nation's veterans.

Earlier this month, we had the great fortune of celebrating our veterans at our first annual veterans day parade hosted by the American Legion. Now we would like to announce that we have permanently reserved six veteran only parking spots throughout our city.

In comparison to the tremendous sacrifice our service members have made, these parking spots are just a small gesture of appreciation and sign of respect from the Citizens of Havre de Grace to the men and women who have served our nation.

Thank you for your service.
