Updated (1/15/20 1:45 pm) I just learned that the event is being postponed due to forecasts of heavy rain and high winds.
Stay tuned for a new date.
Reminder, the community is invited to sign up to participate in a car parade scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday, January 16th at 1:00 pm. The “Peace Parade of Thanks” is organized to:
welcome in the New Year with gratitude for our health care workers and first responders . . .
This is a Non-Political, Bipartisan Interfaith Event. All are Welcome!
The event is promoted as this year’s version of the annual Vigil for Peace and Unity sponsored by Southborough’s Neighbors for Peace. The parade is co-sponsored by the group Hate Has No Home.
Whether joining the parade or not, the community is also invited to make cards thanking front line workers and public safety personnel. (Scroll down for details.)
Parade participants will “drive-by and salute our first responders, the fire and police personnel of Southborough”. The caravan of cars will continue on to Marlborough Hospital to thank their essential workers.
The event is planed as rain or shine. Parade participants will convene in the Neary School parking lot, 53 Parkerville Road.
As for the Thank you cards, initially the public was encouraged to bring them to Neary prior to the 1:00 pm event. In a sbusequent comment, Hate Has No Home added the following options:
If you are making cards but can’t attend on Saturday, the following locations have boxes for drop off during their regular business hours.
The Southborough Library, Pilgrim Church and Ginny Martin’s Real Estate Office.
Of course we hope you can be there in person on Saturday but also want as many cards as possible.
