This year’s Parade Marshals are Mayor Emeritus Harriet Rosenthal and the League of Women Voters of Deerfield/Lincolnshire. Rosenthal served 12 years as Mayor and 24 years as a Village Trustee. The League of Women Voters was founded in Chicago on February 14, 1920. Since then, the League has worked to register voters, sponsor candidate forums, provide non-partisan election materials about candidates, and study issues on the local, state and national levels in order to create a better-informed electorate.
