Serving as Grand Marshals for the 2008 Lyon County Fair and Rodeo Parade come Saturday, August 16, will be Yerington native David H. Fulstone II and the Ben Ali Shriners, who will be in the Parade for the 20th year this year.

David H. Fulstone II

Fulstone, a longtime local political figure and now a KSVL radio personality, was born in Yerington at the then Lyon County Hospital on December 23, 1950.

The fun loving Ben Ali Shriners will also take to the streets of Yerington on Saturday, August 16, as Grand Marshals for the annual Lyon County Fair and Rodeo Parade.

The Ben Ali Shrine Clowns, Widdle Wheels and Lion's Head units, along with this year's Ben Ali Potentate Mike Barta and other officers wearing Shriners traditional red fezzes, will march through downtown Yerington.

This is the 20th year that the Ben Ali Shrine units have taken part in the parade.

"It's a lot of fun", said Barta, "and it also helps increase the public's awareness of Shriners and our dedication to helping children through Shriners Hospitals for Children."
