This year’s Duvall Days Grand Marshal was Don Stanwyck who was awarded the honor posthumously. Don, who died in February, “was a generous man who gave his time, his care and his knowledge to anyone who needed it,” the Duvall Days Committee said in a statement. Don raised alpacas and other animals at his farm, Jo’s Fleece Fields, which he operated with his wife, Jody. He was deeply involved in the local FFA and 4-H clubs, helping, encouraging and supporting youngsters with their show animals and other projects. Leading the parade were Hoofs-n-Paws 4-H Club and Cedarcrest High School FFA members and their animals who represented Don and all he did for the community. (Photos by Lisa Allen)
