The Nelson Police are expressing their gratitude to L.V. Rogers’ graduates for an uneventful weekend in which festivities were without incident.

“It went over without a hitch. It was hot and sunny, so the crowds were on the larger side. There was a little disruption with the Hall Street corridor, but that didn’t hamper the festivities,” said Sgt. Dino Falcone.

The parade through downtown was accompanied by reserve officers on bicycles, and as parties continued into the evening he said the grads were cooperative and respectful.

There were no incidents to report.

“I would say on the whole the grads were excellent.”
