The Christian County Historical Society has recently formed a new committee. Their Float Committee has a total of seven members so far, and have built a float that the society can use during all parades where they can show the public what they're capable of, and what they bring to the community. Jodi Heberling from the Christian County Historical Society said that because of this new committee, they can be more active to let the county know they're around.
Heberling said the float will be updated and reused during different parades at different times of the year, and will be sporting different decorations depending on what the parade theme is.
