Allegri said Parade Marshal Barbara Akeman is instrumental in maintaining the city’s Veteran’s Park, among other volunteer work.  “She just turned 80 years old and is just full of life and a hard worker, she’s been instrumental in raising funds for the Akeman McBurney Medical Clinic,” said Allegri, “She’s just been a real asset to our community, so we thought we would honor her by having her be made parade marshal.”  The parade lineup starts at 5:30 Saturday evening, with the parade starting at 6:00.
