This happened last night. It's AMAZING!!
Folks, we are beyond words in our attempt to express our heartfelt gratitude to all those who helped make a young mans night. Tonight, the local community pulled out all the stops and gave this young man a Christmas Parade that left many of us with lumps in our throats. It goes without saying, it was the largest nighttime parade in Girdletree History. We will be providing a much more detailed response tomorrow with additional pictures , but at last count there were over 97 different organizations represented with over 200 pieces of apparatus in this parade. Jake, we are praying for you and we wish you and your family a Merry Christmas. It was truly our honor to assist and participate in your parade. 11 yr old boy has been prevented from going to any of the local Christmas parades due to his illness. The community came together last night and gave him his own parade. This is amazing!!! Worcester County Sheriff’s Office Press Release On Thursday December 13th at about 1800 Hrs. the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office was proud to participate in a parade for a child in our community named Jake. Jake was unable to attend the Christmas parades in Worcester County this year due to an illness. One of Jake’s joys is to watch the numerous organizations display their holiday spirit throughout Worcester County in the Christmas parades. The parade was held on his street in front of his house outside Girdletree. The Sheriff’s Office was approached to lend assistance in organizing a small group of people who wanted to give Jake his own parade. The event blossomed from a few vehicles into an outpouring of support from the community. There were 97 entries from Delmarva communities and organizations from as far away as Delaware, Wicomico and Somerset Counties. There were 200 vehicles participating We cannot thank the community that we serve enough for reaching out and making the life of one child just a bit better on December 13th 2018.
