Joe and Mary Jo Redmon have been selected as Flora Christmas Parade grand marshals. The parade will be Saturday, starting at 12:30 p.m. at Tri Green Tractor.
The Redmons are active members of Flora Lions Club and have adopted the club motto, “We Serve,” as their own.
“Anything the Lions do, we are involved with,” Mary Jo said.
They both help with the Lions ice cream stand, the Hog Jog, the Moonlight Madness food stand, and tearing down after the Red Cross bloodmobile visits.
Joe and fellow Lions member Tom Kressley started the Lions Ride for Riley at least 14 years ago. The event is an annual motorcycle ride that raises funds for Riley Children’s Hospital.
Joe is a past president of the Lions Club and has served as its treasurer since January 1996. He also received the Lions’ Melvin Jones Award in 2012 for humanitarian service.
Both Joe and Mary Jo are in occupations that serve people.
The Flora Community Club’s plan for a new and improved Education Center at Flora Park took another giant step forward today as the group successfully completed their “Growing the Community” capital campaign with a fundraising total of $415,037.
First proposed in June, 2012, the project involves the substantial remodel and expansion of the current 4-H Building and Exhibit Hall to meet several community and county needs, while retaining all current extension uses.
