Healthcare workers everywhere are risking their lives by being frontline heroes during the COVID 19 pandemic. People everywhere are showing their local healthcare heroes just how much they appreciate their sacrifice in many ways, but nothing beats a Cinco de Mayo themed parade on Taco Tuesday.
Hilda Sisnero with South Texas Regional Home Health (STRHH) and Elizabeth Herrera with Good Sheperd Hospice planned a small parade on Tuesday, May 5 to thank Atascosa County healthcare heroes.
Participants lined up next to the Jourdanton Police Department at 9:30 a.m. with vehicles decked out in fiesta themed decor. From there, they made their way in front of Retama Manor Jourdanton, Methodist Hospital South, Argent Court, Retama Manor South and North and The Heights.
Participating in the parade were Hilda Sisnero and Shana Baker with STRHH, Elizabeth Herrera with Good Sheperd Home Health, Ray Gomez and Nick Gomez of Trinity Hospice, Debbie Norment with Heart to Heart Hospice, Tasha Meyer of New Century Hospice, Sarah Gamboa from Atascosa County Veterans Service Office, Ruby Ballin of Argent Court Living Facilty, Sierra and Clarity Poston from CASA of South Texas-Atascosa and Austin Straube and Corey from Methodist Hospital South.
