2019 Veterans Day Parade in Indy cancelled due to inclement weather

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indianapolis Veterans Day Council has canceled the upcoming Veterans Day Parade due to inclement weather projections.

“The projected freezing temperatures and possible snowfall/freezing rain could not only create a dangerous situation for all involved, but it could also hinder operations to clear the roads along the parade route,” Tim Sproles, communications director for The American Legion said Friday.

The Veterans Day Service will begin Monday at 11 a.m. at the Indiana War Memorial located at 431 N. Meridian St. Instead of the service being held on the north steps of the Indiana War Memorial, it will be moved inside to the Pershing Auditorium.

A patriotic musical prelude will begin at 10:30 a.m. followed by the memorial service.

‘Taste of Hope’ benefits Indiana’s only recovery high school

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Hundreds came out to support a local high school while enjoying food Sunday afternoon.

“Taste of Hope” is an event that supports Hope Academy, a public charter high school that helps students recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. It’s the only recovery high school in Indiana.

More than a dozen restaurants were on hand passing out samples.

Organizers said the event is one the school heavily relies on.

“We have a funding gap because we provide so much wrap-around services for our students in recovery and support,” said Rachelle Gardner with Hope Academy. “This helps decrease that gap for us.”

Guests also had the opportunity to tour the school and hear from students and administrators.

School officials hope the event brought more awareness to the issue of addiction.
