Reverse Parade for Class of 2020

Post Date:05/13/2020 1:53 PM

 

Mayor Christina Muryn has approved a reverse parade in celebration of Findlay City Schools Class of 2020.

The event is scheduled for 2pm on Saturday, June 6th with a rain date of Sunday, June 7th. Graduates wishing to participate in the parade should contact Christie Lammers at (419)348-5305 or c_lammers@yahoo.com or Rachel Haas at teacherhaasfhs@gmail.com or call 419-306-5964 by June 3rd.

Graduates being recognized will be spread out along South Main Street between McPherson Avenue and Elm Street in a controlled fashion and in designated spots. Citizens, family, and friends wanting to celebrate the graduates will line up their vehicles on Lake Cascades Parkway and then drive north on South Main Street dispersing at Lima Street. All are welcome to decorate their vehicles to show their support and appreciation for the Findlay High School 2020 Graduates.

When asked about the event Mayor Christina Muryn said, “This is a unique time for our community. Many graduates and families have been devastated by not only the pandemic itself but the events and “finals” they have not been able to participate in. This is a major milestone in life and we want to celebrate them as a community. Luckily, various community members stepped up and we are able to put on this reverse parade which will allow us to celebrate while also practicing social distancing.”

Donations are being accepted to help decorate the parade route. Any community members, parents, or businesses wishing to donate to provide decorations, water, and other supplies for the event please contact Jill Schroeder at (419)957-8578 or donate at First Federal Bank under the account FHS 2020 Graduation Fund. Or you can Venmo your donation to @FHS2020SeniorParade. Any excess donations will be used to establish a scholarship with the Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation in honor of the Class of 2020.
