My name is Jakob Beckley and I was in charge of the parade for Pleasureville Day this year on Sept. 8.
We had a great turnout for the parade, even though it rained all morning, along with the other events during the great day.
I want to thank everyone for participating in Pleasureville Day and supporting our city.
This year the grand marshalls were Nancye and Ashley Chilton. They are both outstanding citizens and I want to thank them for being in the parade and supporting me along with supporting the community. Even though I was in charge of the parade, many people talked with me and helped me get the parade together. Those people are Verna Stivers, Nancye Chilton, Shawn Mertz and Danny Cravens. Thank you all very much.
I also want to thank our honorable mayor Rodney Young, who worked all week clearing brush to make our city look its best.
Thank you to all the vendors and singers who gave great entertainment.
Again, thanks to everyone who came to Pleasureville Day and participated in the parade, you made it a success!
