July 4 parade

In an effort to keep everyone safe, Tri Kappa has made the decision to cancel this year’s July 4 parade in Greensburg.

Tri Kappa indicated in a news release to the Daily News this was a hard decision to make, as so many people come home for this special event.

“Being that it is a town reunion of sorts, it is very hard to social distance with the amount of people in such small areas before, during and after the parade,” the release states. “Our main priority has always been safety while celebrating our country.”
