The Marblehead Peninsula Lions Club held their 22nd annual Perch Festival on Saturday, August 23, at James Park. The Perch Festival is the primary fundraiser for the Marblehead Peninsula Lions Club. All of the money raised at the event goes back into the Marblehead community and to improving sight and preventing blindness.
The grand marshals of the parade were the Danbury Laker Athletic Booster Association. The athletic boosters organize grade seven through grade twelve athletics and also give scholarships to students. Bill Chapman, president of the boosters, gave a short speech thanking the community and the Lions Club at the event.
