Youngsters cheer child care providers outside the Campus and Community Children's Center during the parade.

It wasn’t the 4th of July or Labor Day, but a wide-ranging car parade on May 8 honored those providing care for youngsters on Child Care Provider Appreciation Day.

The special recognition was for area providers, including the Campus and Community Children’s Center, in caring for children of essential workers.

Community members, families and parents were invited to join the parade anywhere along the route in Northern Chautauqua County. It traveled from Water ad Temple streets in the village of Fredonia, through the city of Dunkirk, and then on to the village of Cassadaga.

The event was organized by Fredonia alumna Beth Starks, executive director of the Chautauqua Lake Child Care Center; Sue Marker, director of the Child Care Council of Chautauqua Opportunities, and the child care council.
