Neighbors come together for a special birthday parade

7 Jun

How about a little happy news for a change?

A very special birthday parade was held this afternoon for a very special young man, Jack Frank, who turned 9 years old today.

Jack’s mother Alana said that she put the word out to her neighbors — many of whom own some real hot-rods —  and a few of Jack’s teachers at Plank North that she’d love to brighten his day with a parade. It kind of morphed into something much bigger than she ever expected or hoped for.

Even our local first responders answered the call, leading perhaps 50 or so cars, motorcycles and bicycles down the street, to Jack’s utter delight.

Check out this short video from the beginning of the parade and you can see how much fun he was having. (The fire trucks are kind of loud, so get ready to turn down your speakers!)
