Grand Marshals named for parade

MILLERSPORT - The Millersport Lions Club have selected Warren and Daisy Motts to serve as the Grand Marshals of the 61st Sweet Corn Festival and will lead the Grand Parade beginning at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, August 29. All veterans and their families are encouraged to line the parade route to show their respect and appreciation for the Motts and the legacy they are creating honoring America's veterans.

Warren and Daisy Motts serve as Director and Assistant Director of Motts Military Museum in Groveport. The museum started in their 1870's home in 1988. The museum opened at its present location on South Hamilton Road in 1999. A new wing has just been added, doubling the size of the facility. A new vehicle building opened this year featuring vintage military vehicles. A replica of Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker's boyhood home has been completed and filled with original memorabilia from the 1918-1919 period at the museum.
