The 60th anniversary of Dr. Kate Pelham’s Newcomb Million Penny Parade will be held Saturday, May 25, during the Memorial Day weekend celebration.

To raise funds for the hospital, Pelham began the first Million Penny Parade in 1953, after it was suggested by a student from a local school.In honor of the 60th anniversary of Dr. Kate’s Million Penny
