What's news this week in Crittenden County...

Historian Brenda Underdown will lead Saturday's Christmas parade in Marion.

Brenda Underdown has always kept her finger on the historic pulse of the community. This weekend, she’ll step into the widely celebrated and often unforgettable role as grand marshal of the annual Crittenden County Chamber of Commerce Christmas parade in Marion. Underdown will lead the parade, which starts at 5 p.m. Saturday. It is the second consecutive year the parade will be held at night, a nostalgic piece of trivia that Underdown would certainly find interesting.
