There were a few tears and plenty of smiles and laughter as a large undetermined number of vehicles participated in a parade past the Scott and Vikki Lewis residence on Pioneer Road in Delta. The occasion for the parade was the homecoming for Delta High School student-athlete Shad Lewis. Lewis was injured in an automobile accident in November 2019 and had spent the last five months battling life-threatening injuries suffered in that accident.
Students, parents, grandparents, related family members and many friends were occupants in the vehicles in Saturday’s parade. The parade included several fire trucks, law enforcement vehicles and other emergency vehicles from the communities of Delta and Olathe.
Prior to the parade, most of the vehicles in the parade gathered in the forest service parking lot located at Highway 50 and Pioneer Road.
