2021 Grand Marshal - Ret. MSgt. Larry Elliott USMC
In 2020 we asked for nominations for a Grand Marshal. Mayor Mike Neitzke and the Dan Jansen Family Fun Fest both nominated Ret. MSgt. Larry Elliott USMC. We are honored that he has accepted and welcome Larry as our Grand Marshal in 2021. He is a Vietnam Veteran that made very, very moving speeches when The Moving Wall came to Konkel Park in 2019.
Links to a few videos from the Moving Wall event in 2019 featuring Ret. MSgt. Larry Elliott are below:
Furthermore, the Greenfield Celebrations Committee would like to invite former and current military to join our Grand Marshal this year. Please fill out the parade form with your name and address and return to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to PO Box indicated on form. For organization, please indicate "Walking with Grand Marshal." The Committee is currently working on obtaining cars for those that do not want to walk or cannot walk.
If you are interested in driving current military or a veteran, please reach out to Pam Panich at 414-881-5866 to coordinate.
