The couple has been a part of the community since the 1960s.

“We’ve been here for so long, Havelock is like a big family,” Barb Whiteman said. “You get out with people, and the longer you’ve been here the more people you know, and it’s just great. I love it. You can’t go any place without running into somebody you know.”

They thanked the entire city for their selection as grand marshals.

“We love this town, and there can’t be anything better,” Barb Whiteman said. “That they picked us is really amazing. We’re very grateful.”

The parade route begins at the Cherry Plaza Shopping Center on the east end of Havelock and continues up East Main Street to Havelock City Hall. It will feature the Havelock High marching band, floats created by area organizations, various civic, nonprofit and church groups, fire department trucks and Santa Claus.

The Havelock High state football championship football team is also scheduled to be part of the event.

During the parade, both eastbound and westbound lanes of the street will be blocked. The detour route will take vehicles along McCotter and Fontana boulevards.
