Donation Day Parade Success

The Annual Donation Day Parade took place for the 130th year in downtown Grass Valley this morning. The streets were blocked off as students from the Grass Valley School District and neighboring districts paraded through downtown with non-perishable food donations for the needy in the community. Grass Valley City Councilman Howard Levine was in the middle of the action as the parade came down Mill Street.
