Silver Creek throws Mother’s Day parade for residents

Families drove through the parking lot of senior living facility to see loved ones

JOPLIN, Mo. – On Saturday, Silver Creek Senior Living in Joplin held their own Mother’s Day parade.

Family members decorated their cars and drove through the parking lot wishing their moms a happy Mother’s Day weekend. The parade lasted for about 30 minutes.

For some families, this is their first year celebrating Mother’s Day apart from their loved one.

“We’ve gone all out. We want her to feel that we haven’t forgotten and that we’re thinking of her and all the residents really, you know, that people just care,” says Sabrina Thomas.
