Papel Named Parade Grand Marshal

Papel Named Parade Grand Marshal

--Special to The Dodge County News
As floats, fire engines, football players, and other fired up Indians fans line Oak Street on Friday for the 2011 Homecoming Parade, the man people will see first will be one who has initiated many firsts in Dodge County and for whom the honor of Grand Marshal is well deserved.

Trifonio Infante (T.I.) Papel, the Grand Marshal of the 2011 Dodge County Homecoming Parade, was born in Palapa, Northern Samar in the Philippines in 1942, but for years he has called Dodge County home and has served it as such.
