JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (November 28, 2018) – Elite Kreations has once again partnered with Jamestown Renaissance Corporation to provide the transportation of this year’s Grand Marshal, Jeff Smith.

“I am extremely humbled to have been chosen to be the Grand Marshall of this year’s parade,” remarked Jeff. While Jeff accomplished many great things during his time at the St. Susan Center, he is most proud of the summer lunch program. Started three and a half years ago, the program has provided over 40,000 lunches for the children who attend all the YMCA, Boys and Girls Club summer parks, playgrounds, reading programs, in addition to the 120,000 meals prepared annually at the Soup Kitchen.

Linnea Carlson, Jamestown Public Market Manager asserted, “Jeff is a true pillar in our community, holding a deep passion for giving back to his home city. This has been exemplified during his tenure at St. Susan Center, and his dedication will shine as he moves on to the Jamestown Public School District. Jeff’s commitment to others has helped bring the Summer Meals Program to children in need, led significant efforts to combat hunger in Jamestown, and built successful community partnerships. His kindness extends to each and every person, young to old, and I can think of no one better to honor this year as Grand Marshal.”

The Jamestown Christmas Parade starts tomorrow, Friday, November 30th at 6:30pm. Elite Kreations is sponsoring  the Downtown Jamestown  Christmas  parade for the 4th year in a row as the official transportation of the Grand Marshal.
