John Schroeder has been tapped to serve as the Grand Marshal for the Rome Christmas Parade, which will traverse Broad Street next Tuesday night. This announcement was made during the annual parade breakfast on Tuesday that was sponsored by Heritage First Bank.
Schroeder, with brother Charles, founded Schroeder’s New Deli more than 30 years ago. He was chosen as Grand Marshal due to his efforts to give back to the community, asserts Janet Byington, parade co-chair.
The parade will begin at 6:30 pm. This year’s theme is “Let It Be Christmas – Everywhere”. Details are online at www.romechristmasparade.com.
