Untitled 1GREENVILLE, Ky. (11/24/17) — The City of Greenville and the Greenville Tourism Commission are hosting the 2017 Greenville Christmas Parade at 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2 with a theme of “Miracle on Main,” celebrating the miracle of Christmas on Main Street.

There will be floats and entries from across the county and anyone interested in participating should contact either Beth Newman, Greenville Tourism Commission Director at 270-338-1895 or Dorothy Walker, Greater Muhlenberg Chamber of Commerce Administration at 270-754-2360 to register a float or entry. Float registration forms can be downloaded from the Greenville Tourism Commission’s website www.tourgreenville.com under the “Events” tab. A copy of the Parade Rules and answers to the most Frequently Asked Questions about the parade are also available online.

Parade check-in and float line-up will begin at 3:30 p.m. in the parking lot of South Middle School on Pritchett Drive. Everyone is asked to check in to receive an identifying number at South Middle and then proceed to a designated staging area. Parade goers are asked not to park along Main Street to enable everyone to have a good view of the parade from the sidewalks.

The 2017 Grand Marshal will be Kathy Jacobi, president of the Felix E. Martin Jr. Foundation. She has dedicated the past 10 years of her life to creating transformational change in Muhlenberg County.

Parade Graphic 2017Jacobi was part of the team that initially created the Martin Foundation after Martin’s death in 2007 and since that time, she has become an honorary citizen of Muhlenberg County. During her tenure as president, Jacobi led key Foundation projects such as the establishment of the Greater Muhlenberg Parks and Recreation System and Muhlenberg County Park as well as Muhlenberg Alliance for Progress which is committed to expanding economic development in Muhlenberg County.

During that time, she also oversaw the creation of the SOAR Early Childhood Education Program, the Muhlenberg Achieves Postsecondary Success Program and, most recently, led the charge to re-build and re-open the boat dock at Lake Malone. At the close of December, Jacobi will retire as president, when Alyssa Manning will take the helm. Jacobi and husband, Dr. Joe Jacobi, reside in Louisville.
