To the editor:

Vicksburg Main Street Program is truly grateful and appreciative to all of our volunteers, the City of Vicksburg departments, Vicksburg Police Department, the Warren County Sheriff’s Department, and our downtown Merchants who went the extra mile to make the Mardi Gras parade such a success.

This year we had several departments and supervisors step-up and be huge assets to Main Street and the success of our parade: Parks and Recreation, Rick Daughtry and crew, Community Service, Lionel Johnson and crew, and Traffic, WL Sanders and crew.
