Wendell Celebrates July 4th With Reverse Parade

Posted

We’re excited to be partnering with the Wendell Historical Society and the Wendell Chamber of Commerce to host the Town of Wendell July 4th Reverse Parade! The parade will begin at 2 pm at Town Hall and is expected to last about an hour. Check out the map and turn by turn directions for the planned route.

While we would love to travel down every street in Town, we selected the route based on the level of interest received from the community. If you plan to leave home to catch the parade, please be sure to stay off the road and out of way of vehicles, wear a mask and practice social distancing!

The 14-mile parade route will include several emergency and town vehicles – no bicycles, golf carts, or walkers are permitted. Vehicles will be traveling at around 15-20 miles per hour and will have their lights and sirens on. You’ll be sure to hear them coming!

Visit https://www.townofwendell.com/discover/events for a large-scale version of the map, event details and FAQ's! We can’t wait to celebrate the 4th of July with the community!

Mr. Jones will seek to collaborate and engage with stakeholders to develop, evaluate and support the Town’s major capital investment projects.

Following a competitive recruitment and assessment, conducted by Developmental Associates, Mr. Jones was selected for his experience with organizational and strategic leadership, progressive local government experience and ability to facilitate partnerships on both a public and private level.

Born in Germany and raised overseas, Mr. Jones spent his early childhood on military bases where his father served in the Air Force.

He is also a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners and a graduate of the UNC School of Government’s Public Executive Leadership Academy.

Mr. Jones, his wife and daughter have lived in Wendell since 2016. They are proud to call Wendell home. He looks forward to being part of the great things that are happening in the town.
