As with COVID and the 2020 cancelled Rotary Xmas parade, the parade was once again scrapped. Last year, a Christmas program was put together by Rotary and the City and aired on chillTV. No official word yet on a televised program for chillTV although Executive Director Berris Karden says, “stay tuned”.
