The Rotary Club of Yucca Valley has named the grand marshal for the annual Yucca Valley Light Parade. Cheryl Nankervis, the longtime executive director of the Yucca Valley Chamber of Commerce will be honored during this year’s parade, set for Saturday, December 21. Nankervis plans to retire soon and Rotary President Ignazio Ficara said naming her as grand marshal was a way to thank her for her years of hard work promoting the town and its businesses. Due to construction on the highway, this year’s light parade will be held on Santa Fe Trail. The parade will begin at 5:30 at Cherokee Trail and will head west, ending at the Hi-Desert Water District office at Inca Trail, where Santa and his elves will hand out gifts to the kids. There will also be a puppet show. To participate in the parade, pick up an entry form at the Yucca Valley Chamber of Commerce, Realty Professionals office, or online at yvrotary.org.
