Powell and Liberty Township honored and celebrated first responders in a weekend-long “porch parade” May 1-3, 2020.
Liberty Township fire and EMS and Powell police vehicles traveled routes along main thoroughfares and through many neighborhoods in the township and city throughout the weekend, allowing residents to celebrate the efforts of these groups in the fight against the COVID-19 coronavirus.
“During the parade, residents in neighborhoods were encouraged to fly flags and make signs, draw chalk art in their driveways and cheer from inside or outside their homes,” Liberty Township PR Committee member Stacey Haney told Liberty Township trustees during an April 20 meeting.
“It will be a nice event to get people out of the house and into their yards, to watch the parade go by and smile,” Haney said. “It won’t be long, but it’s something to look forward to.”
