A Letter to the Meadville Tribune:

Special moment for family at Pumpkin Fest parade

Oct 21, 2017 Edition

Each day we are greeted with news, often depressing, from storms in the South to fires in the West, from mass shootings and violence to epic drug problems. Through it all, however, there sometimes comes a bright and shining moment. This past Saturday was one of those special days.

While setting up with family and friends to watch theConneaut Lake Pumpkin Fest parade, the excitement from the children was building and a large crowd gathered for a parade that would last 1 1/2 hours. As they began to file past with veterans and scouts proudly displaying flags, one seemed to forget about the world chaos. There were fire trucks, rescue squads, clowns, dance routines, old cars and trucks to new cars and trucks, pageant queens, floats and an assortment of horses large and small. The band was right on cue and the bagpipes were great, too.

As the participants passed by, they tossed candy and treats to the children. Our granddaughter, who is confined to a wheelchair, watched with great excitement. Her brothers and sister gathered some goodies and placed some in her bag. Some parade participants placed treats directly into her bag.

The much-anticipated Zem Zem Shriners began to proceed with their precision drivers, barstool racers and motorcycle riders performing their maneuvers. Several groups of small, fast race cars entertained the large crowd. Then came that special humbling movement as the little yellow hornets performed their precision-timed maneuvers. The children were all very attentive and enjoyed the display.

With a signal from a driver, they all lined up on the center line facing the little 5-year-old curbside in a wheelchair and paused to recognize her. It was like time stood still. As they began to file out, one by one a driver signed, "I love you" to Rebekah as she sat in her wheelchair. As I looked around at family and friends, many an eye welled up with tears. It was such a special moment that has been mentioned every day since.

Thank you to all who had a hand in this event. TODD AND JANET HEATHCOTE - Greenville
