Springfield’s Senior Class is the light
On Friday, April 24 the class of 2020 took part in a drive-by parade as a part of the Be The Light MN initiative. To keep to social distancing guidelines, seniors lined up inside their vehicles on the west end of Central Street. At approximately 8:40 p.m. fire trucks led the senior class down Central Street, through Riverside Park, where the ball fields were lit up in their honor. Friends, family and community members gathered along the route and at the park to recognize and congratulate the 2020 class. After being led through Riverside Park, the seniors were then led through St. John’s Circle of Care for tenants and residents at the care facility to honor the seniors, too.
