Chamber looking for parade grand marshal

Once again the Chamber of Commerce is looking for candidates to be considered for grand marshal of its Christmas parade slated for 5 p.m. Dec. 3. Names must be submitted to the Chamber by Monday.

The grand marshal title is presented to an individual or group who has consistently made a difference in the community but has not received public recognition for their contributions. Often this will be a person who gets a project completed or makes sure everything is done with little or no self-promoting. Many times, this person or group work on their own time and, generally, are not compensated. They go beyond the normal demands and may also involve service to country or a non-profit or include positions achieved on state, national or international level.

Candidate choices may be mailed to: Crittenden County Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box 164, Marion, KY 42064; or email to

Call the Chamber at (270) 965-5015 for further information.

Meantime, applications for parade entries may be picked up at the Marion Welcome Center.
