Parade for 4 year old boy with autism

Simply Grazin' truck ready for car parade

The COVID-19 health crisis and the social distancing protocols has prevented people from coming together to celebrate holidays and birthdays, but where there is a will, there is a way.  Like many during this time, the plans change, but the love shines through.

Shawna Loveland rallied her friends, family and local police and businesses together to do a drive-by car parade for her son, Zayne to help him celebrate turning 4. Zayne. Simple Grazin’ employee Nichole Cortes and her daughter, set up and drove one of our trucks through the parade with a Thomas Train Engine tent for Zayne.

The parade took place on Thursday, April 16, 2020. Below are two videos, courtesy of Shawna Loveland. The first video is of the parade and the second is Shawna thanking everyone and showing Zayne playing inside his new Thomas tent.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZAYNE!!! Ryan Brown Priscilla Brown Joseph Loveland Joseph Loveland Jr Nichole Cortes Daniellejason Matteson Michael Whitney
