The Parade Grand Marshal is something that was added to Celebration Days about three years ago, according to Chamber Director Allison Cooke.
Cooke says this is a way to honor a member of the community.
This will be the fourth year that the Celebration Days Parade will have a Grand Marshal designated. It all started in 2013, when the Village Northwest Unlimited Panther Softball Team was selected as Grand Marshal. In 2014, the surviving World War II veterans in the community received the honor, and last year’s Grand Marshal was Parker Lloyd, The young son of Tyler and Maggie Lloyd, who was battling cancer. Up until now, the Grand Marshals have been selected by SCDC staff, but this year Cooke says they decided to change things up a bit.
If you’d like to nominate a deserving person to be this year’s Celebration Days Parade Grand Marshal, Cooke tells you how to go about it.
The nomination forms are available from the SCDC, and can also be downloaded by clicking here. Nomination forms need to be returned to the SCDC by May 27th.
