Grand Parade Marshal Selected
We are so excited to announce that the festival board and committee members have unanimously selected Ben Erb to be this year's Grand Parade Marshal!!!
Ben has a strong presence in the community and has served faithfully for Newberg Fire for 36 years, both volunteer and on staff. He continued his volunteer work for the fire department by running the "Toy and Joy" program for 19 years. This past year the “Toy and Joy” was able to provide toys to 925 children in the Newberg area with the long-standing dedication himself, the Head Elf, Ben Erb!
Ben attended school in Newberg and graduated in 1961. He worked for a while at the old mill and then delivered heating oil before he was hired fulltime in 1969 at Newberg Fire. After many years of service, he finally hung up the hat and retired in 2001. In that time Ben was also honored with the “Citizen of The Year” award. To keep him busy he currently volunteers at the Evergreen Air Museum in McMinnville helping to restore old aircrafts. He also enjoys spending time with his kids and grandkids.
Ben is a very humble and caring person, and we could not have picked a better person to represent the Newberg Old Fashioned Festival…thank you Ben!!!
