Special to The Opelika Observer

Arbor Springs Health and Rehabilitation Center is allowing family and friends of people in the facility to greet them in a drive thru parade.

Residents of Arbor Springs will be parked around the facility and are looking forward to this much-needed social-distanced gathering. Arbor Springs is still mandated to limit all outside contact, so it is not yet open for visitors in the traditional sense.

Those participating in the drive thru are encouraged to drive around the facility three times and wave to their loved ones and other residents. All participants will need to stay in their vehicles during the duration of the parade.

“We look forward to seeing the many decorative ideas and loving faces that we miss so dearly,” stated a press release from Arbor Springs.

The facility is at 1910 Pepperell Pkwy in Opelika. Any questions about the parade or Arbor springs can be directed to Shawna Swanson at 334-749-1471 ext. 2009.
