Located 20 miles apart during the school day, students at Gibraltar and Sevastopol are already hard at work making a holiday tradition come alive once again. The Sevastopol Student Council and Gibraltar DECA Club have collaborated together on the Jacksonport Thanksgiving Parade since shortly after the event was established over 20 years ago. They work together promoting the parade in the community and arranging the fundraising aspects of the event, which this year will support Door County Secret Santa. Sevastopol Student Council Advisor Lindsay de Young says it is awarding to see the two schools work together.
The parade, which kicks off at 10:30 a.m. on November 28th, is merely three blocks long but last year collected over $8,000 to support the late Sevastopol secretary Paula Symons in her battle against cancer and other Door County families.
