Strode will be parade grand marshall
McMinnville native Lester Strode, shown holding the World Series trophy, is believed to be the first person from Warren County to be part of a World Series championship team.
From World Series championship to grand marshal of the McMinnville Christmas Parade, Lester Strode will take a place of honor in this year’s procession. “It’s official. Lester Strode has agreed to be the grand marshal in this year’s parade,” said Kendra Foust, McMinnville Parks and Recreation program coordinator.
