If you believe First Responders should be celebrated, respected and appreciated...
YOU HAVE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!
We are a group of residents in Longview, Texas who believe our public servants deserve respect and appreciation. After observing a prevailing culture of disrespect and disdain for Police specifically, nationwide, we decided to stand up and say, "Not Here".
Our first event was the "Hooray for Heroes" Parade in which our local Police and Fire Departments were honored with a Gratitude Parade by our community members. The community was invited to join by decorating their vehicles patriotically and driving through the parking lot at City Hall where officers from Longview Police and Fire were lined up to receive community support and encouragement. The idea was inspired by the recently popular “Birthday Parades”.
The parade was host to 400-500 vehicles saluting and celebrating our local first responders and the "Hooray for Heroes" movement was born.
