WHY WE DECIDED TO SPONSOR TURKEY TROT:
This was the result of members of the local community reaching out to the Mid-Marion County ROTARY Club, which for years has sponsored the parade, to assume sponsorship of the entire festival. From local businesses that rely on significant sales during the festival to longtime residents remembering the tradition of bringing the community together for family, friends, and high school reunions; ROTARY listened and voted to sponsor the festival as an important fundraising effort to support our local youth in Marion County.
Thank you Marion County Rotory Club for trusting that our community can come together
and celebrate a long time festival and follow one simple rule. NO LIVE ANIMALS
