BROCK: A date has been set for a drive-by memorial for Brock Mayor Debbie Bath-Hadden, who died in late January after a battle with cancer.
The event will be held on Saturday, March 6th at 10:30 a.m., with vehicles starting at S1460 Concession 2, south of Sunderland. “Family members will be stationed in the driveways at S1260 Concession 2, the neighbouring family farm and the Wick Church parking lot. An honour guard composed of Brock Township Firefighters and members of the Colour Party from each Legion will be in attendance. Participants are welcome to decorate their vehicles with flowers or ribbons,” read a Brock township press release. For those looking to find the starting point of the memorial event, the township has some directions.
“Turn off Highway 12 east onto Concession 4. Proceed to Sideroad 18, then turn south. Proceed to Concession 2, then turn west to get to S1460. The parade will go past the family farm, at S1260 Concession 2, then exit onto Highway 12.”
At a Brock Committee of the Whole meeting, on Monday, February 1st, Ward 5 Councillor Lynn Campbell announced she was in the process of organizing a drive-by event for the late Mayor.
“We need prerequisite approval from the health department, and we need to involve Durham Regional Police to do traffic control and approve the route,” Councillor Campbell said, at the time.
