Barbara Fletcher named Rose Parade Grand Marshal

The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports:

Barbara Fletcher, 77, first organized the Rose Parade while working for WIBM-AM radio in Jackson during the early 1960s and helped it become a long-running tradition in Jackson.

This summer, she will participate in the parade for the first time in 13 years as its grand marshal…

The parade’s organizers are also seeking the input of local community members to determine this year’s parade marshal, a separate honor.

“We’re asking the community for nominations — it can be anyone,” said Liz Niles, Rose Parade and Party in the Park director.

If you have nomination ideas for Liz, drop her an e-mail at lniles at a1fcu dot org.

Look for an entire weekend of activities with the Rose Festival June 4-6.
