News release by Riverview Rotary Club

Riverview Rotary is pleased to honor six organizational leaders as our 2021 Grand Marshals in the “A Bright Nights and Holiday Nights” themed parade scheduled for 5 p.m. on Saturday, December 4, 2021.  

The 2021 parade will be led by Grand Marshals Dr. Scott Spillman with the Danville Pittsylvania Health Department, Chief of the Danville Police Department Scott Booth, Chief of the Danville Fire Department Dave Coffey, Chief of the Danville Life Saving Crew Robbie Woodall, Executive Director of Averett University’s Center for Community Engagement and Career Competitiveness Dr. Billy Wooten, and Sovah Health System President Alan Larson.

Each of these individuals will invite others from their organizations to join them as they lead our 2021 Christmas parade.  “These organizations represent our frontline responders who never stopped giving and have continually provided our residents with a sense of security that someone would be there to help when the call was made” said Dr. Martha Walker president of the Danville Riverview Rotary club.  Bill Sgrinia, director of the Danville Parks & Recreation Department, agreed.  “Designating these individuals as our 2021 Grand Marshals is a small token of appreciation considering what they have invested over the last 20 months.”

Danville Riverview Rotary has hosted the annual Christmas parade for over two decades in collaboration with the City of Danville and its many business and organizational partners.  Riverview is one of four Rotary Clubs in the Danville Pittsylvania County region and one of over 35,000 clubs organized throughout the world.
