Saturday’s cavalcade was graced with perfect weather

L.V. Rogers Secondary held its 2021 cap and gown graduation ceremony on Friday, with the format adapted for COVID-19 health guidelines.

On Saturday the traditional cavalcade was extended in distance to allow onlookers to watch from residential areas if they wished. Downtown, the grads were met with cheers and applause, in a heartfelt outpouring of support from their community.
