This year's Grand Marshals are Butch and Mary Lindley.

Butch and Mary have been married 57 years and have two sons: Jim and Tom. Jim and Tom both graduated from Millard South High School. Butch and Mary also have five grandchildren

Butch opened Lindley Clothing in Millard in March of 1960 at the corner of 3rd and B Streets. At that time, Millard had a population of 1032. In 1963, Butch moved Lindley Clothing to the Millard Shopping Mall at 132nd and L Streets by the Western Bowl. In 1979, the store was moved to the Millard Plaza and then in 1992 it was moved to 132nd and Dodge by HyVee where it is still located. The original Lindley Clothing store was opened in Wahoo by Butch's father 82 years ago in 1935.

Butch retired from Lindley Clothing in 1988 and sold the two stores to a family member. Butch continued to work for Riteway Oil & Gas until 2007. Butch and Mary still live in the Millard area.

The couple recently moved back to the Millard area.

Butch served the community as a member and president of the Millard Lions Club and was inducted into the Millard Business Association Hall of Fame in 2012. Butch was also an original member of the Oak Hills Country Club.
