Calling all local Little League coaches! The South Whitley Fall Festival is September 17, 18 and 19 in South Whitley.
The festival committee is pleased to announce that they have invited all local Little League coaches (past and present) to serve as Grand Marshalls for this year’s parade. They ask that coaches invite their players to walk along the parade route with as well as any assisttant coaches who helped during the season. Coaches and players should wear their uniform shirt and/or hat.
The intention is to recognize volunteer coaches for their efforts and sacrifice and to also show the community how many youth and adults are involved in the Little League progam.
“We hope that it will positively impact involvement and support of the league in the future,” a committee member said. “Please consider participating. We would really love to have everyone involved.”
The parade is Saturday afternoon with the lineup at the high school. Families are welcome to walk with with the coaches as well.
