WILLIAMSON – The 50th Year Celebration group, commemorating the closing of Liberty High School, is organizing a parade for this Saturday July 30, at 11:00 a.m.
The school had its last classes back in 1966. That year the basketball team made it to the Class A state finals and finished as runner-up.
The parade line-up will begin at 10:30 a.m. Children and adults are invited to participate. Area queens, majorettes, and dance groups are also invited to be in the parade.
Everyone marching has been asked to wear blue or gold, and all owners of Classic Cars are invited to drive them in our parade, said Jada Hunter, who is helping organize the event.
“We will also need cars or pick-up trucks to drive former Liberty High football players, basketball players, cheerleaders, majorettes, band members and homecoming queens,” added Hunter.
Longtime local educator and current board of education member Mrs. June Glover will be the Parade Marshall. Williamson Mayor Robert Carlton will also be participating in the parade, along with the Williamson and Belfry Fire Departments. All other fire departments and emergency vehicles are also invited to take part in the parade.
