Two moms of high school grads have put together a Cruisin’ Graduation Parade this Sunday, June 14, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. down Grand Avenue with decorated cars and class of 2020 high school seniors in cap and gown inside and hopefully cheering spectators on the sidewalk.
Mayor Paul McNamara has been invited to greet the students individually, although his attendance isn’t confirmed yet.
The two moms who organized and inspired the event are Erikka Gongora and Dee Doee.
They were assisted by Alex MacLachlan, who used the experience he had from putting on a prom/graduation party for his graduate son and friends.
As the community parks along the streets of Grand Avenue, ALL Graduates of 2020 will form a procession riding in decorated cars and dressed in graduation cap and gown.
Supports are urged to bring chairs and noise makers, and if you have them, classic cars.
This could be the most memorable united city graduation ever—at least that is the goal of the organizers.
All the restaurants will have discounts to encourage community participation.
