This year’s parade grand marshals are the Perry family. Michelle Perry has been a kindergarten teacher in New Lothrop for 14 years and her husband, Jim, is an elementary PE teacher and girls’ basketball coach. In Michelle’s honor, the students have decided to donate proceeds from this year’s Powder Puff game to I Cancer Vive, a nonprofit founded by Fringe Salon in Lennon to support cancer patients.
A representative will be on hand during the pep assembly to accept the donation. Additional proceeds will go to support the Team Buddy Forever Foundation to honor the memory of Buddy Miller.
