The COVID19 pandemic may have shutdown their graduation ceremonies, but the virus couldn’t steal their joy. “The Parks of Stonecrest and “The Terraces” held a community parade to honor their 2020 graduates on Saturday, May 15. City Councilman Jimmy Clanton provided protective masks for the event as cheering neighbors, relatives and friends, practicing social distancing, came together with balloons and signs as a caravan of decorated vehicles rolled through the communities honking their horns.
