If Schoharie’s anything, it’s #SchoharieStrong.
Friday, more than two dozen cars, decorated with rainbows, messages for Schoharie Central School students, and balloons, and filled with teachers and staff members—and even a pair of turkeys—real turkeys—in the bed of a pick-up--led a parade that wove from one end of the SCS District to the other.
#SchoharieStrong is a hashtag born after Hurricane Irene and brought back as the community dealt with the 2018 limo accident.
Friday, it was back again.
Families lined the parade route, which began on Main Street and ended out near the Esperance Hannaford, with messages of their own, waving to the familiar faces.
The parade was the brainchild of SCS kindergarten teacher Critsen Lare, who said she borrowed it from Guilderland, where her children go to school.
“It just seemed like a fun way to let our students know how much we miss them and spread a little cheer,” she said. “We all need to lift our spirits.”
