About twenty minutes is all it takes to make a difference for Door County area families, including that of Sevastopol elementary and athletic secretary Paula Symons. Symons will be the main beneficiary of this year’s Jacksonport Thanksgiving Parade after learning she will have a very long medical stay coming up in Milwaukee to help treat her leukemia. Organized by the student councils at Gibraltar and Sevastopol, the eclectic event draws hundreds to Jacksonport for a relatively short, but meaningful parade. Sevastopol Student Council adviser Lindsay de Young says the students still amaze her with how well they work together to put on the parade.
Volunteers are still needed to donate prizes, enter floats, and be route marshals. You can learn more about this year’s Jacksonport Thanksgiving Parade on November 22nd online with this story.
