The city of Newnan’s annual Christmas parade will roll into downtown on Saturday, Dec. 8. Santa has already made one trip to downtown – Nov. 23, on a shiny red fire truck – but the big parade is yet to come.
Bill and Anita Headley will serve as this year’s parade grand marshals. Bill Headley is a retired construction contractor and founder of Headley Construction. At an age when most people are retired, he returned to college, graduating in spring 2017.
His wife Anita is most notably known for her philanthropic work throughout the Newnan-Coweta area, and as a supporter and patron of the arts community. She is an active as a member of Central Baptist Church.
“They are both great contributors to the community as a whole, and they both represent what hardworking folks can do for the community,” said Norma Haynes, chair of the city’s Christmas Commission Committee.
