The Jacksonville Rotary Club’s Independence Day Parade stepped off at 10 a.m. Saturday, September 5, after the 4th of July Parade was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The theme was Hometown Heroes and featured Jacksonville area first responders and frontline healthcare workers. The parade marshals were Jacksonville Police Chief Adam Mefford and Jacksonville Fire Chief Doug Sills. Chief Mefford invited Ruth Linear to ride as an honorary special guest of the police department.
