The City of Parsons Christmas Parade will be different this year. Dwight Lancaster will not announce the entrees. Dwight recently passed away and everyone who knew him say they miss him. They miss his loyalty. They miss his face and they miss his voice. This year's parade will be dedicated to his memory.

Dwight reported the news and other happenings on the local radio station. WKJQ. He was a longtime city council member in Parsons, and past school board member for the schools of Decatur County. He served on several boards such as the Parsons Regional Planning Commission , and the Parsons and Greater Area Museum Board. And he would always be there to help the city or the schools out. He never missed a meeting until he got too sick to attend.

Everyone is invited to come out and watch the festivities Dec 3rd and at the same time honor Dwight Lancaster's dedication to his hometown and county.
