All invited to CARE-a-van parade for Senior Citizens Day

LAS CRUCES – Haciendas at Grace Village is hosting its annual CARE-a-van parade Friday, Aug. 19 in honor of Senior Citizens Day.

The national holiday is recognized each year on Aug. 21 as a way to celebrate the accomplishments of older members of the community. At 10 am Aug. 19, members of the Las Cruces community are invited to do just that through a parade for residents of the local assisted living facility.

According to a news release, HGV started the parade tradition early on in the COVID-19 pandemic to support residents. In previous years, facility employees have helped residents sit outside of the buildings on the campus to take in all the merriment.

Community members are invited to participate by decorating their vehicles and heading to the facility to make noise for the seniors. Officials with the Las Cruces police and fire departments will attend, along with members of local car and motorcycle clubs. A singer will also be on site to entertain participants.

HGV is at 2802 Corte Dios. For information, call the facility at 575-524-1020.
