CLOVER -- The town of Clover will be trading its green for red during the 38th annual Christmas Parade starting at 2 p.m. Saturday in downtown Clover with its theme of "Candy Canes in Clover."
This year's grand marshal is not an individual, but rather an agency -- Clover Area Assistance Center.
"The center has given so much to the people in need here in Clover," said parade chairman Beth Covington. "We want to shine a spotlight on their service to our community and honor the vital role they play to Clover area residents."
Parade officials are asking parade-goers to bring canned goods to donated to CAAC with collection boxes at Piggly Wiggly and corner of Main Street and S.C. 55. People in the parade may drop-off donations near the parade line-up on Old North Main Street.
