Hosted by The Mary Wade Home, Inc.
This parade began ten years ago when a national organization, LeadingAge, began an initiative to bring a parade to aging adults who were unable to attend local parades due to varying health conditions.
We thank you for marching and participating in this annual event that celebrates our wonderful Fair Haven Community. We are honored to acknowledge the Outstanding Community Leader chosen by their peers for their continued dedication.
