COVID-19 has impacted seniors in one of the worst ways, and most of them have been in lockdown due to the pandemic for the past few months. Some Vanderhoofians have organized a drive-by parade for seniors to “uplift their spirits.”
The parade is going to be held on Sunday, June 7 and it will be led by Bud Pye in his 1928 Hot Rod.
For people interested in joining, bring your ride to Four Rivers Co-op at 10 am on Sunday, which will be the meeting point.
The drive-by parade will go to various senior’s long-term care homes in Vanderhoof including Silversmith, Riverside Place, Stuart Nechako Manor, St. John Hospital, Nechako View Seniors and Fehrview Complex.
The event is being organized by Doug McKay and Bud Pye.
