GERRY – A local senior living community will be feeling some holiday magic tonight during a car parade to celebrate the season.
Leaders with Heritage Ministries are hosting what they are calling the “Bring the Joy” parade on Friday at 6:30 p.m. at The Homestead in Gerry.
The parade will not be open for public spectators to gather together, but is intended for seniors to view from their windows or porches as cars drive by.
Heritage Senior Chaplain Larry Petry says the parade is similar to one that took place earlier this year.
“We felt strongly supported with a Community Encouragement Parade earlier this year, and felt the Christmas season would provide a wonderful backdrop for further connection and encouragement,” said Petry. “We encourage friends, families, and community members to visit our campus, celebrate the season, and say a friendly “hello” to our residents with our holiday car parade. Lights, Christmas music, jingle bells, and other festive demonstrations are welcome.”
The community is encouraged to join the festivities by decorating their vehicles and lining up at 6 p.m. in the parking lot of Homestead Stables on Damon Hill Road in Gerry. Cars should enter via The Homestead Route 60 entrance.
Heritage leaders ask community members to RSVP via email to LPetry@heritage1886.org or by calling (716) 490-5480.
