Kiwanis Club of San Ramon Valley has announced that the Grand Marshal for the 2008 Fourth of July Parade will be Roxanne Lindsay, a descendent of the pioneer Weidemann family, in keeping with the theme of the Valley's history. Lindsey works for Assemblyman Guy Houston (R., 15th District) and she is also an elected board member of the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District.
This year's parade begins at 9 a.m., an hour earlier than in previous years. Festivities commemorating Danville's 150th birthday and the 50th celebration of the Centennial Hay Days celebration will take place July 3.
Kiwanis is still taking entries for the parade. Register at www.kiwanis-srv.org.
