Alderton-Dawson American Legion Post 60 was the setting for a special vehicle parade and celebration of life held on Sunday, November 26 in memory of Hobart Lee Delph, a 19-month old boy who passed away in early November.
Motorcycles, jeeps, four-by-fours, antique cars, trucks, police vehicles, fire trucks, and emergency rescue vehicles lined up at the Moose Lodge in Berkeley Springs on Sunday afternoon. Delph’s family said Lee loved trucks and anything with wheels.
Drivers and passengers in the parade held baby blue helium balloons, releasing them in front of a small crowd of family and friends standing in front of the Legion.
Sirens wailed, lights flashed, and horns honked as the vehicles passed. Santa Claus waved from atop a fire engine, his sleigh in tow ahead.
