RITTMAN, Ohio (WJW) — The Rittman Fire and Rescue Support organized a car parade to honor the city’s graduating seniors.

The fire department assisted local law enforcement in leading the Rittman High School Class of 2020’s graduation parade Saturday afternoon.

“We support the senior class of Rittman Indians and congratulate them on successful completion of high school, even during this unprecedented time,” the department said.

The Rittman parade had a set route. People were required to remain in their vehicles. Bystanders along the route were asked to maintain proper physical distances, wear face coverings, and follow all traffic laws.

Due to the coronavirus crisis, the Class of 2020 hasn’t been able to enjoy the traditional graduation fesitivities.

However, many communities have found ways to honor their graduates while social distancing.
