Nominees must have served in the country’s armed forces and must live in Essex or have a strong connection to the Essex community. A nomination consists of three parts. The first part will discuss how and when the nominee served in the country’s armed forces. The second will describe what and how long the nominee’s connection to Essex is. The last part will explain why the nominee deserves to be recognized. The focus on this recognition should include their time of service, but can also describe who they are as a person, their involvement as a citizen, and their contributions to the community.
Nominations for grand marshals are being accepted online only until April 14. Nominations will be reviewed by the committee and nominators will be notified during the week of April 15 regarding the status of their nomination. For more information, please visit the website or call 878-1375.
