The West Union Lions Club announced last week that David and Nancy Hook have been selected as Grand Marshall’s for the 2021 Independence Day Parade in West Union.
“Throughout their lives, David and Nancy have generously contributed to the community and are pleased to recognize these outstanding citizens and honor their noteworthy accomplishments,” said Stephen Caraway, Past President of the West Union Lions Club. “They have worked hard and given so much time and energy to the community that we all call home.”
According to Matthew Sheeley, President of the West Union Lions Club, the parade will return to normal. In 2020, candy and handouts were prohibited, that will not be the case this year. “We are very glad to return the parade to its normal operation,” said Sheeley.
The Club encourages all local businesses, organizations, and individuals to come and have an entry in the parade or be a spectator. The line-up will commence on west side of Cherry Street heading north beginning at 1 p.m. and step-off will be at 1:30 p.m. The parking lot for the Historic Wayside Inn will be off limits this year because they will be open and serving customers and flow to their parking lot should not be interrupted, according to the club. **EDITORS NOTE: The Wayside will now be closed on Sunday July 4th***
The parade will be broadcast live on C103, as well as live streamed on Facebook.
“We are excited to continue one of our community’s longest traditions,” said Sheeley. The West Union Lions Club is one of the last remaining community service organizations in West Union, now celebrating its 89th year of service.
