South Toms River Will Honor 2020 Grads With A Weekend Parade
As the calendar flips from May to June, high school seniors across Ocean County are getting ready to make it official with the Class of 2020 graduating over the coming weeks.
Of course, graduations will be very different this year because of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
Even with new guidelines to allow limited in-person graduation ceremonies, the Class of 2020 will have a very different experience this year.
That's why the South Toms River Police Department is setting a graduation parade for this coming weekend.
In a Wednesday Facebook announcement, the department shared their plans to visit local Toms River High School South seniors on Saturday, June 6th.
It'll be a joint effort between the South Toms River Police, the South Toms River PBA, the South Toms River First Aid Squad, the Manitou Park Volunteer Fire Company, the South Toms River Office of Emergency Management, and South Toms River elected officials.
The whole thing will kick off at 10:00 on Saturday morning, with the department setting out to visit each and every South Toms River high school graduate.
Here's the full announcement from the South Toms River Police Department's Facebook page:
You might remember the photos that I shared last week of Toms River High School South's huge display of senior photos with banners for each member of the Class of 2020 stretching nearly a whole block along Hyers Street:
It's cool to see how our communities are coming together to give the Class of 2020 creative ways to mark the end of their high school chapters!
