Years of service and dedication mades Christmas parade decision easy
Baldwyn’s Bob and Alice Glover have been named Grand Marshals of the 2018 Baldwyn Christmas Parade “O Holy Night” on Tuesday, December 4 at 6 p.m.
Many know Bob as former owner of Bob’s Trim Shop, an auto upholstery shop in Baldwyn. While Bob owned the upholstery business for 30 plus years, Alice served as Baldwyn’s court clerk for 20 plus years.
As a Baldwyn resident and business owner, Bob was active in many community endeavors. He served as a charter member of the Baldwyn Development Association in which he was president for two terms. He was also a charter member of the Baldwyn Rotary Club and Paul Harris Fellow for his outstanding service as a volunteer.
Bob and Alice have assisted with many community events such as the Baldwyn Christmas Parade, Okeelala Festival and Car Show, Baldwyn Main Street Chamber events, and more.
Being a volunteer and service worker came natural to Bob after returning home as a Vietnam veteran in the U.S. Army. As a veteran he was an active member of helping launch the Baldwyn Veteran’s Park by helping raise some $17,000 for the park’s construction.
“The Glovers have served the Baldwyn community faithfully over the years. Mr. Bob has given many volunteer hours to the chamber programs and events and was instrumental in starting the Baldwyn Development Association and Rotary Club. He has continued his service to the Baldwyn Main Street Chamber. We are blessed to have them representing our community,” Baldwyn Main Street Chamber Director Lori Tucker noted.
Bob and Alice are members of Hillcrest Church of Christ in Baldwyn. While enjoying retirement, Bob and Alice are avid sports fan, and Bob enjoys working with wood products. They have two daughters Bobbie Burns and Deanna Lindsey and four grandchildren John, Emily, Ty, and Kylie.
“It is an honor and we appreciate the opportunity to lead this year’s parade for Baldwyn,” Mr. Glover said.
