Dear editor,
On behalf of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Vicksburg, I would like to send a special and heartfelt thank you to everyone who was involved in the planning of the homecoming parade and ceremony for our Hometown Hero, Malcolm CB Butler. So many hours of thoughtful participation were spent by individuals whose only goal was to ensure that Malcolm CB Butler and his family were given the celebration that they truly deserve.
Malcolm inspired so many people in our community to showcase their incredible skills and talents. Malcolm never gave up on his dreams, and he proved that through hard work and a strong faith in God, anything in life can be accomplished. His dedication and determination has guided him to be the successful individual that he is today.
My sincerest gratitude goes out to all the sponsors, local officials, law enforcement officers, committee members, and parade participants who gave of their time, energy, and resources to help make this event a success. Once again, the entire community of Vicksburg came together as I knew they would, and showed that the citizens of Vicksburg are truly a family who support their own. The best is yet to come!
George Flaggs, Jr.
Mayor, City of Vicksburg
