The Vault, a youth gathering place that has been in the works for over a year and the head of the effort is humbled to be the Grand Marshal of the Saturday Clinton Christmas Parade hosted by the Chamber of Commerce.
Michelle Witzke has been hard at work to secure funding and a home for a vision of a new youth center on the downtown square. She would not take all the credit for the honor though.
Witzke says being the Grand Marshal is a testament to the support of the community, something that overwhelms her with emotion almost every day.
The Christmas Parade will conclude on the square Saturday afternoon and Witzke invites anyone interested to come by the former Indecent Xposure site for an open house and tour of The Vault and see how much space they are working with.
Witzke thanks all the contractors and laborers that have stepped up to provide man hours and supplies at a discounted cost or no cost. She says the support for them has saved them a lot of money and will allow them to get things opened up to the youth that much quicker.
Additionally, she thanks the students at the high school that have volunteered their time to the effort and given them input on the things they would like to see at The Vault.
Next week on Regional Radio News, we'll highlight a chili supper fundraiser that will take place at Clinton High School during the boys high school basketball game.
