Senior Services plans "Honks for Hugs"
June 11, 2020
Help Crook County Senior Services (CCSS) show some love and appreciation to seniors in the community and other more vulnerable people who are still remaining at home as the pandemic continues. Next Thursday, join in with the ‘Honks for Hugs’ event, a parade to entertain those in assisted living, long term care and elsewhere.
“We will do a vehicle parade with signs and drive by the assisted living,” says Jenna Ellsbury, Director of CCSS.
If you know of someone who would enjoy the pick-me-up of seeing the parade pass by their home, Ellsbury urges you to let CCSS know.
“If anybody in the community would like to suggest a name and address, we will add that to our parade route. People can call the office or message us on Facebook with names and addresses,” she says.
The parade will take place on June 18 at 6 p.m. and participants are welcome from all around the county. Those who would like to participate in the parade will meet at the senior services building to line up before starting the route.
The parade will visit the assisted living and hospital and then pass by the addresses submitted by the public.
“We encourage signs, we want to make it fun – even if you would like to wear costumes in the car,” Ellsbury says.
