The Red Flannel Festival Board of Directors is seeking nominations for a Grand Marshal—or a couple to serve as Grand Marshals—for the 75th annual Red Flannel Festival. Since the 1980’s, board members have chosen Grand Marshals for Cedar Springs’ signature event in October. Citizens are encouraged to write a nomination letter suggesting a person or couple to receive this year’s honor.
If you know someone you would like to see honored this way, please submit their names, address and phone number and include a brief summary of that individual’s or couple’s contribution to the Red Flannel Festival and Cedar Springs area—and specifically volunteerism to the Red Flannel Festival.
Nominations must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Jan. 27 to the RFF Office, P.O. Box 43, Cedar Springs, 49319 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Festival Board will choose the 2014 Grand Marshal at its January meeting.
The RFF Board meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 30 at 6:30 pm at the RFF Office, 21 E. Maple Street. All interested in volunteering are welcome!
