FHS Grads To Be Recognized During Reverse Parade

Findlay High School’s Class of 2020 will be celebrated during a reverse parade along South Main Street.

The parade is scheduled for 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 6th, with a rain date of the following day.

Graduates who choose to participate will be spread out along South Main Street between McPherson Avenue and Elm Street clad in their cap and gown.

And then family, friends and anyone wishing to celebrate the new graduates will line up their vehicles on Lake Cascades Parkway and drive north on South Main Street.

“This is a unique time for our community,” said Mayor Christina Muryn.

“Many graduates and families have been devastated by not only the pandemic itself but the events they have not been able to participate in. This is a major milestone in life and we want to celebrate them as a community. Luckily, various community members stepped up and we are able to put on this reverse parade which will allow us to celebrate while also practicing social distancing.”

Donations are being accepted to help decorate the parade route. Any community members, parents, or businesses wishing to donate to provide decorations, water, and other supplies for the event should contact Jill Schroeder at (419)957-8578 or donate at First Federal Bank under the account FHS 2020 Graduation Fund. Or you can Venmo your donation to @FHS2020SeniorParade. Any excess donations will be used to establish a scholarship with the Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation in honor of the Class of 2020.
